wow is all I can say

Well yesterday we had a terrible time finding our turtles . We retrieved one and the other one was dumped in a ditch somewhere . These two downs syndrome kids (who should have been being watched by their parents instead of an older brother ) stole them out of our pool out front of my cousins house . When approaching the house the older brother told us that their mom or dad was not around and he was having to watch them and he continuely called them stupid . so anyway they returned the little male turtle but then told us they dumped our female turtle into a ditch and she we figure is long gone now sadly to us . Our friend across town has several turtles and she is going to give us one to go along with the male turtle . It just amazes me that not one parent came down here to apologize . I as a parent would be so embarassed if my child did anything like this and I think any parent with a grain of salt should be too . So I know now that when my grandma said that the apple does not fall too far from the tree . I think maybe the parents have stolen and the kids saw it and think it is alright to do so . anyways on a lighter note here guys and gals Denise is having an awesome giveaway again and here is the link to her blog and check it out .Knitting in the Wild - Life on Clear Creek . Let us all be carefull out there among them english .


  1. I'm so sorry to hear about your turtle. Our neighbor, across the back alley, has a turtle in their little created pond(water feature?) It walked out one day and luckily another neighbor found it and returned it. The little girls at the end of the alley were not so fortunate. Their turtle took a hike and was never seen again. Fortunately, as far as we know, no person was a thief in these cases.

  2. I'm so sorry about your turtle! I hope your other one plus the new one are OK.
