Turtles and Weddings!

I'm kinda weird in that I like driving and looking for turtles.  Your almost always likely to find one...but normally I just miss it and go back and its gone.  Turtles are NOT as slow as we would think.  I was on my way to a wedding on Memorial Day weekend and lucky me saw this HUGE turtle sticking his head out.  Hubby went back and we got out and snapped this picture.  We also saw him poop.  Now if you've never seen a turtle poop, your missing out, well your not really missing out because its gross. It shoots out from its back and it goes quite far and its alot.  You would NOT want to get in its way when its doing its duty.  This turtle was very big, the picture probably dosnt do its justice. 

This is my co-workers, former co-workers wedding reception right before everyone came in.  Her wedding was beautiful, she was beautiful.  I was so happy to be able to get dressed up and get out....forget cancer for a short time.

This is my and hubby's place setting.  I was so hungry i ate 4 of those bags of hershey's kisses.  The two folks that were suppossed to sit next to us, did not show--so hey, I ate their candy!  I hope everyone is enjoying the outdoor weather. I sure am loving it.  Easier on my bones.  I have scans the end of this month,,,please keep me in your prayers that my cancer continues to decrease and leave my body....and not return for 25+ years.  do you think thats possible?

You are in my prayers Dawn, I think of you often!
The wedding, simply gorgeous!
The turtle, very interesting, especially the poop part.
When I am in a vehicle their is no fear of the bears.
But when I am outside, I scan the woods around me.
But we have 2 acres very open and he isn't too likely to get this close unless we have something to pull him in.
It is a little unnerving at times.
When we moved to Western Wisconsin in 1970 there were no bears in this part of the state.
Now were loaded down with them and I guess they have been seen even in southern Wisconsin.
Hugs friend,
Cindy

You are on my prayer list dear Dawn. I bet the weather where you are is beautiful, probably just getting warm up there. For us, in Fl, hehe, I hibernate in the HOT summers here. Not totally, of course, but more than any other time of year. The wedding was beautiful. So glad you enjoyed yourself. Nope, never seen a turtle poop and from the sounds of it, don't care to, hehe. Enjoy the beautiful weather and the flowers and everything and avoid the poop stuff. Blessings.

Dawn, I am laughing out loud about the combination of a pooping turtle and a beautiful wedding in the same post! What a combination! It does look like a pretty wedding, and the information about turtle poop was educational, since I've never seen one poop. I'm not going out looking for a pooping turtle though. I'm so glad you got to go to the wedding. And I'm so glad you got to see a turtle poop! You remain in my prayers. laurie
