Turtle #13

posted in: Neighborhood, Walkabout Wednesday | 0

Box Turtle with Red EyeIt’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 …
