Unlikely Friendship

A little bird had some nerve and landed right next to the eagle on the tree. She sang to him for awhile... It was one of those "Snoopy and Woodstock" moments..

Myrtle ...the Turtle

Well - now I know that there is at least one turtle in one of our local lakes. As I was walking along the trail I heard a big splash and so I wondered if it was a fish. No - it was not a fish, all of a sudden a turtle came up for some air. What a treat. what a treat!
