There are turtles in my river.

Well, I don't know if they are turtles or tortoises. I really don't care, to be honest--it's kind of like alligators and crocodiles. I don't eat them or take care of them, so it doesn't matter except for the purpose of having a word for mutual identification in conversation with others. Now, I say 'turtle' because I like the word better--rolls off my tongue--so turtles they are.

To continue the honesty, it's not my river, either. But anyway--I'm sidetracking, aren't I?

There are turtles in my river.


I'm not used to this. I'm used to the Ohio River, where the only things that can properly survive the industrial filth are ducks and the...special tribe of people who swim in and drink from the thing. I guess I never really thought much about where turtles came from. I just knew that they didn't come from rivers--process of elimination, you know?

I actually mistook it for debris, the first one I saw; suspiciously turtle-shaped debris, surely, but debris nonetheless. When I rubbernecked to get a closer look, however, I was thwarted by the wiles of the ever-capricious Ocmulgee--down under the waves sank my eyes' prize. Or...something like that. The point is, I couldn't see it anymore.

So I went home.

It would be another day that my turtle-river ignorance was abruptly shattered. That fine, sunny day, I happened to walking over the river again--it was the same spot, I recall. I so happened to look over my right shoulder--over the edge of the bridge--and what should my wondering eyes see?

You are correct. Turtles.

Turtles! Oh, how merrily they bobbed up and down with the waves! Little ones, big ones, all turtle-like and turtle-looking and silent-like-turtle. Turtles! They swirled around lazily in the current, paddling their little turtle feet. I watched them dissappear briefly under muddy waves, only to once again bob to the surface, as if to say: "Look at me, I'm a turtle!"

"You sure are," I thought.

I wondered if turtles ate bread, like ducks. Or barbequed duck, like the River People. I pondered these and many other thoughts, staring at the turtles of the river.


On another day, I will tell you about the armadillos.

Just brilliant...made me laugh out loud! Presumably the curlees (as opposed to the curlers) are given a mild sedative before the match in order to prevent them wandering off mid-game?

Nope - it is just the will to win which keeps them there! :)

Good god, this is adorable. Made me smile, which is kind of hard to do after ten o'clock. I wonder if I could get some friends together and we could try this... Too bad we don't have any armadillos around here.
