After the Storm -- Another Guest
and so overall, we are incredibly grateful.
Here at my home in the woods, we're all doing well -- infact, we must be doing so well that we have another 'guest' .....This spotted turtle showed up at our steps yesterday -- and no, I didn't feed it -- ! LOL I figured with all the water around, s/he found plenty to consume. Boots checked it out though and rendered it harmless ...s/he sauntered off to our grass area - probably for cover or, as others have in the past, to built a nest and lay a few eggs .. (if it is indeed a female!) ...
Our concerns now turn toward Hurricane Ike - a most powerful hurricane heading, it seems, for the Gulf Coast -- a part of the US already saturated by Hurricane Gustav ... we'll monitor the weather as one never really 'knows' what these storms will do. Meantime, prayers for those in the path of this killer storm.
