Turtles always strike me as devastatingly serious. If turtles could talk, I'd believe everything they said.
If, for instance, a turtle came up to me and said, "You see that guy over there? That guy is an asshole," I would mentally assign the title of asshole to the guy over there. Turtles would make good cops. No one would eff with a turtle cop.
Yesterday the Goat and I took a five and a half mile walk along one of the longest remaining sections of the Ohio Canal (Click here for more, or just to see some cool pix of the terrain). It was a glorious walk, one of my favorites. But yesterday, there was an extra surprise: the turtles.
We saw dozens of turtles. They were lined up on branches that stuck out of the water. There were little ones and big ones. They were flop/diving into the water. They were sunning. They didn't call us assholes. It was like they were really happy despite their serious expressions.
Fortunately for the turtles, the Turtleman (featured in the following YouTube) was no where in sight. If you haven't met "Kentucky's best kept secret," I heartily encourage you to view this footage. There are some things you have to see to believe.
