Thank you Ora for the turtle picture
So many have said they like the turtle picture I thought I should give credit where credit is due. I don't know where she got it. I do have a caption that is similiar to the one she sent with the picture and you may have seen it printed in my side bar at one time. Something to the effect If You See A Turtle On A Post You Know It Had Help Getting There. I think we would all agree to that. The water was so murky today they had trouble seeing the puppy food. They still wanted to come close. My throwing arm is getting much better so most time I can place the piece of food about two inches in front to the turtle's mouth. Not always but most times. Those turtles can swim faster then they can walk but I guess that is natural since they are turtles. They can sense that I'm there (bragging), more like there is food across the stock tank. I don't know if it is the motion of the water but I can see them swimming for all their worth coming toward the side I'm feeding on. To Shirl: I can't tell if they are getting fat under their shell. The largest one has a shell about the size of a dinner plate. The smallest is about three inches long. My dream is to see a very large one or a very small one. We hadn't planned to go out but ranchers have a way of having their plans changed on a moments notice. John's hunter who hunts on his place where his daughter lives called. He said someone has cut or damaged his deer feeders. They had fixed them where the corn wouldn't come out. Some remarks had been made about neighboring hunters luring all the deer to where they are hunting. How rude and unsportsmanly. His daughter will have a talk with the landowner in the back to try to get everything straightened out. Of course you can bet when I heard John was going out I grabbed a container and filled the puppy (turtle) food. When we left his daughter's house I shook the container and suggested we go feed the turtles. Lucky turtles!
