What Will I Do If Lucy Turns Out To Be A Boy?
Oh I know I can name her Luther. You say how will I know? I've been doing some reading about turtles by a man who is supposed to know. I can't wait to have time to go visit the turtles and check them out more closely. Male turtles are supposed to have longer tails, indented shells, and longer toe nails. Okay the longer tails I can tell. Indented shells, I know what indented means but I have never noticed any shells looking indented. I'll have to pay closer attention. The longer toe nails are supposed to be an advantage to court the female. Doesn't sound good to me but then I'm not a turtle. Now Mr. Jimmy tells me I can't pet a turtle so I'm going to take the challenge. Seems I have my work cut out for me at the stock tank. Probably be a few days before I get to check out the sex of turtles and try to pet one. I think it is supposed to rain and get cold (our coldest spell yet) tomorrow. I'm not serious enough to sit in the mud and freeze to find out these personal things about turtles.
