yesterday sucked ass

I checked the house sparrow nest, but there are no eggs laid. I haven’t seen the sparrows near the nest either. I’m not looking a whole lot though….

I wandered down to the pond. Turtles started sliding off logs and frogs jumped off the shore into the water as I got closer. I should have known one lone turtle stayed on the shores for a reason….like near death.

Do you like my fancy manicure? (:

    My friend Laurie commented on this earlier,

    “Hope today is less sucky and or assy. :)”

    but I had to erase that post and repost due to some server maintenance….

      I think a raccoon probably bit into its head a bit. I’m gonna check to see if its alive a little later today.

  3. I had a sucky and assy kind of day yesterday too. Here’s hopping for less of that for us both. Give my love to the turtle.
    PS: your manicure looks better than mine.

    Recently my wife, Kristen, was driving over a crick (that’s creek for you northern folk)on our gravel lane, saw a turtle, and was about to do the bleeding-heart rescue thing. To make a long story short – it had an unusually long, pointed tail and big sharp teeth. She DID NOT attempt to rescue a snapping turtle. A guy came along with steel-toed work boots and “gently shoved” it back into the crick. Hope you have a better, non-suck ass day!

  9. Your manicure doesn’t look any worse than mine. :-) I also hope you have a better day today. Ann and I almost got lost looking for wildflowers this morning. But we drove our way out of it. Say hi to the turtle for me. :-)
