On the move....and Dewey Immortalized

Hi ya Bloggies,

I tell ya we never seem to get ta talk about what we are doin' anymore until it's almost too late ta tell ya.
Right after Christmas, we left "da burg" and headed south fer the winter. We drove all night long and then all the next day and only stopped fer the night once we reached Georgia. There was a terrible snow storm and we wanted ta beat it. We didn't beat it but we missed the worst of it by leavin' early.


              That, I tell ya Bloggies......is what we saw in the Carolinas on the way down ta Florida.
            'N the Carolinas are not used ta gettin' snow so we saw a lot of accidents on the trip down.

              But now we're lookin' at this beautiful scenery at Lake June in Winter in Lake Placid, Florida.
                                                          'N we are sure glad ta be here too.
                    We've had a few cold nights but fer the most part the weather has been beautiful here.
Yep, I tell ya....it's paradise....fer sure.......

                
Ain't it just spectacular?  
Water....'n ramps ta walk out on....
                                                                      'n more water....
                                                                          'n trees too.
                      Then there's these sandhill cranes that are walkin' around in our neighborhood.
                                           Imagine that ! I mean who invited 'em anyway?
                                                       They don't have a house here.
                                                           So we had ta bark at 'em..........
                                                 I mean we're the bosses 'round here......right ?
                                                                   Ya agree, don't ya?

          Then I tell ya that we really got upset cause Gram 'n Pap found this turtle walkin' on the road
                  and they didn't want 'em ta get hit by a car so they brought 'em back ta our house.

                                       Put 'em right in our exercise pen....I tell ya......OUR PEN!
         There he was just lordin' up the place like he owned it
  'n it is OUR PEN !


                                   So I had ta watch 'em outta the window in our Florida room....
                                 ta make sure he wasn't takin' anythin' that didn't belong ta him.......

I mean that was a HARD JOB....... watchin' that turtle ta make sure he was bein good.......
a really HARD JOB!
But then someone had ta do it...so it was ME!
 
So he spent the night in our exercise pen cause Gram 'n Pap went ta a sports bar ta watch the Steelers play football.
We found out that he was called a gopher turtle....cause they dig tunnels like a gopher.
So what did the little nurd do that night?

He dug himself  inta the ground so we couldn't see 'em anymore 
'n so we would think he had moved on.

 But I was smarter than that....cause I knew he was still there.
Yep, Gram 'n Pap told us that they took 'em ta the nature preserve across the lake
 but I think he's dug 'imself a BIG DEEP TUNNEL
and he's hidin' in our exercise pen.
So everyday I check the perimeter just ta make sure.
 I'll sniff 'em out....yer siree.......
He can't fool me !

 ***********************************************************
