Well here it is. I don't know if it's a boy or a girl, but we've never had a box turtle around the house before, as far as I know!
I hear the stupid alarm in the garage doing it's slow beep..........beep........beep, for the low battery. I opened the garage door just in case I fall off the 8' ladder. Got the batteries changed and went to get the sunday paper off the lawn, when I look down and there's the turtle. He was just outside the garage.
So I ran into the house to get my camera, and he was inside the garage when I came back out. Now I'm going to close up the garage and not go anywhere today, so I don't want the little guy stuck in there.
So I set him just outside the door... then I went and put in under one of our bushes. And it's pouring out so I got soaked. But I wanted to get him where he might feel better. He is so cute! I love the markings on the back. And the colors in the rain were wonderful! I can see a turtle quilt coming.!
I was so buggered about the stupid alarm beeping, but then it turned out so cool that I got to see the turtle! Nice. I had slept later than usual because it's dark and rainy yet again! When my son was very little he made up a joke about turtles. Here goes: Why did the turtle cross the road?
To get to the shell station.
(Hee, hee, hee,)
I thought that was pretty good for 5 or 6 year old.
So now I will eat breakfast, read the Sunday paper and find the large Suduko and crossword, then finish up the 2 bags I have been making. Time to sit at the frame later today.
