As I was heading into town to stay with dad the other day, I noticed a turtle sitting along the side of the road.
So he posed real purdy for me. He seemed to think this profile shot showed off his best side. He even told me his name is Speedy because he’s the best there is when it comes to crossing these country roads with every redneck in the county barreling down on him with their 4x4 trucks.
I nicely thanked him, got back into my car and went on my way. What a nice little turtle.
Oh heck, who do I think I’m kidding…
Actually I really was heading into town to stay with my dad, driving too fast up our gravel road (first time I’ve ever driven too fast, I swear it…) when I came up on this turtle crossing the road as only a turtle can – slowly.So, I stopped my car, grabbed my trusty little camera and quickly snapped his picture before he retreated back into his shell.
Then since he was so slow, I snapped another picture.
Bubba here FINALLY figured out what I was doing and tried to get away from me, but I was too fast and snapped one more picture of the coward.
Then, after I had sufficiently terrorized him, I hopped back into my VW and took off, flinging gravel behind me. I’m pretty sure none of it hit Bubba, though.
Has anyone figured out that I don’t have anything good to blog about, so I’m blogging nonsense? Hope the sun is shining in your part of the world – get out there and enjoy your weekend!!!!!
