Do You Know What Today Is?

 Today is National Turtle Day.

We have a neighborhood turtle that walks thru our yard every spring on his way to a pond about half a mile away.
In the fall we see him walking back down the hill and we give him a lift to the woods where he continues on to his winter home.
He's been showing up every spring since we moved here and the dogs let us know he's arrived. They all watch him closely, but Tsar is the only one who ever interacted with him. Tsar picked him up and carried him to the door where we took him and set him back on his route.

I had a little turtle when I was a kid. It was ok but as pets went, it was pretty boring. I still like turtles, but I'll stick with my knitted ones.

 To all the turtles out there, have a wonderful day and stay safe.
