Taking Breakfast Orders



A couple of people have told me turtles are nasty. I beg to differ with them. Now I ask you do my turtles look nasty? Look how pretty their shells are. They must have just had their morning bath. I think they might even put deodorant under their arms, all four of them. I'm asking would you like white bread, wheat bread, or cat food. The turtle is saying either or all of the above. Excuse the large knees, its the angle. My knees are rather large though. Once when my grandson was young he was walking around the carpet on his knees. Of course I had to tell him I wonder if I can do that and he said Grandma with those knees you shouldn't have any problem.

Good looking turtle Paula...Some folks set great store by turtle soup but I never found it to my taste. I think your question to me would probably be J.G. (Scoop) Richards. He owned and published the Aransas Pass Progress until he passed away in 1998. He had quite a good reputation as a newspaper man. John W.

(laughing at the knees...)

and i don't think turtles are the least bit nasty (although I do wash my hands after i handle them to avoid any salmonella etc.) ours here in texas keep that algae on their shells whereas when i see photos of those up north, their shells are sleek and shiny. oh well. i toss scratch feed at the edge of the pond (and into the pond a bit) for our turtles in the pond. they'd come up for the duck feed i'd sprinkle so i just started feeding them directly.

now, one more question - never noticed until today. is there an ant in your header photo? must have been on your lens maybe?

I think the trutle coming to you is amazing. All of the turtles I ever saw was running/swimming away from me..Lol.
I don't see big knees...I see little feet, anglewise. Lol.

Your Red Eared Sliders are the cutest little fellas. The gentle Sliders and their cousins are the kind you see at pet shops. You sure have made pets out of these fellas. Love them.
