    A turkey was on the loose at Walmart the day before Thanksgiving.
    The gobbler, 64-year-old Linda Rudd of West Bend who is a 39-year employee of Allen Edmonds in Port Washington, was able to purchase several last-minute items while catching the eye of pretty much every other customer because of her unique head-to-toe costume.
    “A girl at work had a friend who took pictures of me there and sent it to her with the caption ‘only at Walmart,’” Rudd said. “She goes, ‘that’s my friend!’ I love it. If I can make people smile, that’s my goal.”
    Rudd started celebrating various holidays by wearing a Santa Claus hat about 10 years ago. She added clothing to the mix and now wears something different to work every day leading up to Christmas.
    “I might have to raise the bar,” Rudd said. “I don’t know what I can do different.”
    About three years ago, Rudd’s granddaughter asked what she was going to be for Thanksgiving. Rudd thought she meant for Halloween, but the granddaughter told her to be a turkey.
    “So I made this costume,” Rudd said. “It’s the looks I get. The turkey is my favorite one because you don’t see too many turkeys running around. The little kids, all of a sudden say, ‘mom! There’s a turkey!’
    “Or even like when ‘Frozen’ was out and I was the snowman. The little kids thought I was Olaf. That’s always cute. “But the funniest is the reaction from the turkey.”
