    Turtles Are Adorable!

    My husband, our kids and I were driving down a back road couple miles from our house. We live out in the country so we see all kinds of animals. I saw something in the road and I made my husband stop. It was a turtle. He got out and picked it up, he showed the girls the turtle...

    Logical, Really...

    I respect turtles a great deal because they never get anywhere without sticking out their necks.  So why should I not do the same... and possibly save that same neck???
