05.23.2022 Happy World Turtle Day

Last week it was bees.  Almost every day is world something day.  Celebrating turtles is better than donuts or cheeseburgers.

Hark!  The object of our admiration.

    • I answered that question this morning, brother.


      • While preparing a post for Fascination of Plants Day on May 18th I’d come across a website—maybe the same one that made you aware of World Turtle Day—and noticed that every day seems to have gotten dedicated to a bunch of things. My guess is that most of them haven’t generated many celebrants.


      • I imagine that within the small community of each one listed it may be noteworthy but even those we have recognized are not at the fore of most people’s realities.

    Turtles all the way down! Who doesn’t like a nice turtle? Love your particular portrait, so nice among the lily pads.

    • Every turtle deserves its day in the sun. 🙂

        They sure do. I live in an area with lots of little bodies of water but sadly, that means lots of little turtle bodies crossing roads. There seem to be a lot of yahoos in pickup trucks here who delight in flattening them. So, seeing your’s here made me really happy.
