One More Turtle
Well actually its a lot more turtles but I'm going to almost promise not to write about them anymore. John said he was tired and he has seen turtles all his life and he didn't want to go with me. So I drove and wasted expensive gas alone. Well you know some grandmas play bingo (no offence grandmas who play bingo) but this grandma feeds turtles. They were waiting for me when I drove onto the tank dam. I could see heads sticking out of the water everywhere. When I got out of the truck some of them met me at the edge of the water. The purpose of this entry is to say my turtles are nice turtles. I wore heavy shoes with closed in toes so I didn't feel threatened. I sat on a big hump of dirt and some of them did come up to my shoe and didn't try to bit at all. If there was food there they would grab it and head back to the water. If they didn't find any food they would head back. When two spotted a piece of food and was going for it one would get it first and the other would back off. They didn't fight over food. I did take some pictures but I don't know how they will come out because the turtles kind of blend in with the ground and the water.
