Mr. TURTle!

It is WET around here! Driving up the road yesterday? the day before maybe I see this HUGE turtle crossing the road.
I mainly got out to make sure he would go across the road, as the drivers around here have no consideration for the critters
they run them over and think nothing of it...I try to save what i can...

He was covered in mud..from the little pond on the opposite side of the road.

I don't have anything major to report in about...been catching up cutting grass weedeating and such this week, the owner of the place I keep grounds for, was coming to town and I like things to look especially spiffy when he arrives.

I have begun a portrait spread...the growl...

i think it was a snapping turtle...he wasn't smooth

You have been busy, rescuiing animals and painting lovely portraits! I have to tell you-I have bought a dremel and managed to drill a hole in a piece of china! The glass broke but I will try another piece. I was very excited about the china though-so thanks again for that video!

Sounds like you had a really busy week. Hope it wasn't as hot there.

Thank you for taking the time to try to keep the animals in your part of the world, safe. I know sometimes it is hard to stop for some animals when they dart out into the road. It's nice to know somebody is trying to prevent roadkill. :)Bea
