The Window

It started the evening before when my grandson came running in the house.

“I hit the well cover and broke the water line” he said.

Water was spewing everywhere; he was looking for a cutoff and I said, “Just cut the power.”

The water stopped running. He was really upset. I said that was not the first time that happened. I called my nephew and he came right over. I love that boy. They got the water line fixed, and now all is well.

Then the excitement began. The little great-grandchildren came running in the house all excited. saying Daddy found a turtle. I was thinking it was a box turtle or something, so I went out to see what was happening. It was this big snapping/mud turtle (I am not sure what it is called) and he was holding it while it was trying to snap at him. The kids wanted to pet it. We said it would take a finger or worse. So, he carried it down toward the creek behind the house and turned it loose.

This morning I looked out the window and there it was, heading this way. I guess he or she was going back to from where it started. If it was a female, she was looking for a place to lay her eggs. It’s that time of year. The neighbors got all excited and we watched it come through the yard across the street and back to its home. Good luck to it. We hope it will be all right.
