Quality Time With The Turtles
Usually when I feed the turtles John lets me off on the tank dam and he runs an errand on the ranch. Sometime he comes right back and is ready to go. Yesterday I drove myself down there while he and a workhand was working on the farm house. So I plunked my self down on the bank and watched the turtles and two cat fish eat. They all seem to get along well. The fish and the turtles do. Two turtles will get into a hussle over a piece of bread at times. A friend recently told me he shoots turtles. Grrr I didn't like that a bit. I ask him if they have a stripe on each side of their face and he said I think so. Humm I don't like for people to shoot Red Earred Sliders. He said they eat fish eggs. Floor Tile came out of the water but he/she was so mucky with green stuff I could barely tell who it was. Before dark we went riding over the place and I spotted a cow off to herself. John said she is due to have a calf so he got out to look. The cow was looking the other direction trying to throw us off of the direction her calf was. They do that, mama cows are smart. Sometime they will walk the oppisite direction. John outsmarted her and found it right away (he's been around the block with cattle a couple of times). He didn't bother it as she was giving him a very dirty look.
