It’s been awhile since we’ve had to relocate a turtle. And in the past, it’s been a fairly quiet process. The turtles retreat into their shells and have absolutely nothing to say.
Then along came Turtle #13 …
This one hissed at me. And he had crazy red eyes. He was wild, I tell you!
I had to pick up my daughter from school and didn’t have time to deal with a belligerent turtle, so I vowed to resume battle as soon as I got home.
But he was gone.
This yellow fellow is still out there somewhere. Waiting. Just waiting. And watching.
And maybe hissing.
Yeah, well, I can wait, too.
Until we meet again, turtle. Until we meet again …
