Feeding the cows tonight Clara and I discovered a turtle in the cows pen – inches from the hot-wire.  Clara was sure he was stuck… afraid of getting shocked but afraid of turning back and getting tromped on by those huge cows.

Reghan took it up to the house and before I knew it she’d named him Rick and had him in a private aquarium complete with water, rocks, plants… like she’d been planning this for some time.

Everyone was watching Rick and taking him out to play with – showing him to friends – he became part of the family – we’re talking less than 60 minutes.

Then, without warning – completely unexpected there is a small egg in the aquarium – Rick is not a Rick but a Rhonda.
