Lost In The Trees
This is an old picture and now part of that tree to the left has rotted and fallen into the water. This is my favorite place to feed the turtles as there are some bare places where I can stand without encouraging the chiggers. Also there is a little shade. Yesterday John let me out there to feed the turtles while he did some chores. After he drove off I decided it would be the perfect place to sit on one tree limb with another to my back. The turtles came right on over. The wind was blowing fairly hard, so at times I thought the limb to my back was going to sweep me off into the water when a gust of wind blew. I couldn't believe it when I heard John driving up and he passed me by. I began to contemplate spending the night out here with no food and no bed. I could walk up to the house and sleep on the floor, but no food? Guess I could walk up to the farm-to market road and hitch a ride into town. Oh well he made a big round by the pens and house and came back. By that time I had pulled my self up from the trees and was on the tank dam. Where were you, he said? I thought maybe you had fallen into the tank when I made the rounds and didn't find you anywhere on the road. I give him a lot of headaches, don't I?
