I Think I Smell A Fish Fry
The last three times I have fed the turtles the catfish didn't come to compete with them for the bread and cat food. I vision them stretched out in the renters frying pan. I can't say too much as they may have put them in the stock tank as we had never seen fish in there before. The two new turtles are still fighting and chasing each other everytime they get near each other. John remembered Domingo saying he found two turtles and didn't think we would mind him putting them in the tank. I'm not sure about them. Their shells are more rounded and they don't have the red stripe on the side of their face. They are small so I don't know if they are young or if they don't get big. Guess we will find out. Lots of turtles came to eat late this afternoon. The old home place is slowly being torn down. Looks like they are trying to save as much lumber as they can. They are stacking it on a flat bed trailer. I tore a garage down at our rent house several years ago and if I would have been thinking clearly I could have found someone to tear it down for the lumber. Some of it was very good old lumber not like you buy now days. The first day I hired a young boy to help but then I was afraid he would get hurt as I didn't know what I was doing but I wanted it off the property as the roof had been caving in for a long time and was an eyesore. Its amazing what a widow can do when she sets her mind to it.
