I know a turtle who has a headache
We did get to go to the ranch this morning but after a full day of sunshine yesterday the tank dam was still too muddy to drive on and even to walk on. I must look for some rain golashes (bet I didn't spell that word correctly). Well how would I know it doesn't rain that much in south texas. We don't even have words concerning rain in spelling bees. Anyway I fed on the end of the stock tank closest to the pens. It was windy and cool and the water was so murky not many turtles came up. I don't think they like it when the wind blows. I don't either and neither does Susie. As I pitched the puppy food I hit a turtle hard right smack on its head. I swear I didn't mean to. It seemed to look at me and then drew it's head inside it's shell. Poor thing. Miss Kitty (aka Smokey) met us and followed us around so we gave her some of the turtles bread. John said doesn't look like the new renters are over feeding her. I must remember to take her some cat food. The renter's cats were all on the front porch in different poses of relaxation. We didn't see hide nor hair of any of the renters until ten o'clock. It was all quiet with all the blinds drawn tight. Cows are doing good but the army worms have taken a toll on their grass. We wanted to go to the back forty to check things there but the road was just too muddy. Not complaining, the rain was wonderful and we appreciate every inch.
