Even The Turtles Had Too Much Food For Thanksgiving
John and I had a wonderful Thanksgivng with family and friends north of San Antonio almost in the hill country. I think we are both dragging around a few extra pounds and I think the turtles are too. When we stopped at the farm house to talk to the renter lady she told us they had a lot of company for Thanksgivng so she told all the kids to go feed the turtles while she was getting lunch ready. She said they fed them a whole loaf of bread. No wonder we didn't see a single turtle pop it's head out of the water when we drove over the tank dam today. They are probably stuck in the mud without the energy to raise their shells to the top of the water. They will probably snub me now with my one or two slices of bread or small cup of cat food.
