Fat Turtles


Bet you thought you would never hear that from me. New renters paid us a visit. They paid their rent for November and their electric bill for October. He has taken on the job of filling the house water tank and the girls have taken on the job of feeding MY turtles. Not once but twice a day. Can you say FAT TURTLES? When they rented the farm house John told them and you have to feed the turtles. He was only kidding but they took him so seriously. They said they have added some guineas to thier animal family. This family all really love animals. They stayed about an hour and reported which cow was mooing all time and the others were mean to it and leaving it behind. Which cow did this and which cow did that. The Mom said they saw two turtles come up by the house but she doesn't think they are our turtles. She thinks they came from some other pond as they didn't look like our turtles. They really notice everything about the animals. The man told us the cats have been killing the mice and he is glad. He said he is terribly afraid of mice more so then rattlesnakes because of something that happened in his childhood. They had to pen the ducks as they were trying to make their way to the water tank and they are afraid coyotes or wild hogs will eat them. Too bad as I know those ducks would love that water tank but its a little too far from the house and you can't see it from the house. The man was going to go home and put out a block of mineral and salt for the cows out of the grain tank. Can things be going this smoothly out there or am I dreaming?

Good morning Paula, We did not have one trick or treater and I didn't think we would. I heard my Neighbor Next door the drunk vomiting his beer up that he drank yesterday. When no cars are going by ANd I hear him nearly every morning before he goes to work. I just wish they would disappear. So are you going to wind up with huge turtles. Tell them not to overfeed Lucy cause Lucy gains to easy.

How nice you have renters who are working out and helping too. They sound like good folks. I asked Doug if my turtle (Yertyl) gains weight would he still fit in his shell? He didn't know but so far my Yert is still able to get in & out of his shell. LOL.
