We also saw a turtle just finishing laying her eggs by the edge of the pond. George went over to investigate and I snapped some photos. Speaking of snapping, I warned George not to get too close. He's not out of the doghouse yet with his master (see post below) but I've got no gripes with the young fella. See that mud behind the turtle in the bottom photo? She had already dug a hole and buried her eggs in it and covered it with the mud. I hiked back up the hill to change to my zoom lens after I took these two bottom pictures and by the time I returned to the spot, she was long gone, the mud packed down with her turtle prints.
Another exciting day on the farm, I tellya. I have no idea why my eldest son ever wanted to leave and move to Manhattan when there's all this sort of excitement here! My youngest son is finished helping with the mowing for the week and he'll return on Sunday. It was really good to have him home for a few days, but he's got his own life to return to. Wish he could have stayed for Lost tonight, but it's fine. Are there any other Lost nuts out there besides Miz Booshay?
Stay tuned tonight to see if I remember to post the Weekend Guessing Game at 6 PM EST. I have something in mind and I think you'll have fun with it.
