So, a couple of weeks ago, I was watching my chickens have fun with some new straw that I had spread on the floor of their pen. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw Josie headed my way dragging what looked like a turtle on a leash…only the leash
was attached to the turtle’s rear.
I just stood there as she came closer. Then, being a curious person, I finally said, “Whatcha doing, walking your turtle?”
She came to a stop, turned and looked at the thing and answered, “Yes. Her name is Rock. She’s a girl and I’ve trained her not to bite or snap”. Then, she continued on her way.
Later that same day, wearing a different outfit,
here she came again, with Rock bouncing backwards over roots.
This lasted for a few days, and then I discovered Rock in the grass outside my back door. So I picked her up and put her on
a bench on my sun porch. She’s been there ever since, so I suppose Josie has moved on to other things.
Once I even thought about taking Rock for walk…you know, just to see what the attraction was. But I figure we’ve entertained the neighbors way too much as it is.

Oh dear Lord, this is the best one yet!!!
Being another curious person, Why do you suppose the tail was the point of attachment?
Nikki won that turtle at a Pokino game. It’s shell light up at night if you plug the ‘leash” into a solar charger.
I see said he blind man who really didn’t!
