We released the call ducks we raised this spring, took them right to Turtle Town and they were ecstatic. We used to raise a lot of ducks, but not anymore, they are very hard on a farm and its ponds.  Call ducks are a different, smaller, less destructive breed.  They come in a variety of colors and look like the full size ducks they were bread to attract, but the important thing is you can put several in your pond and they won’t destroy it!  They are great duck pets, come when called, and even call to you if they see you first.  They are adorable.  They mostly hang out in the larger pond near the wetland now that they are older and summer is here.

Turtle Town

turtlesThis past spring was beautiful, one of the best in recent memory ’round here. The small pond outside our bedroom just suddenly took off, after several years of not even a water weed. Never had more than one small turtle but now there are dozens, the baby turtles are more cute than you might think a turtle would be. I call it turtle town and smile.

Turtle Town is a heaven not only for the turtles but me as well. If you have your head up, you are aware of some of what’s going on out there in the world, away from Turtle Town. It’s a show indeed, and we all have front row tickets thanks to this marvel called the internet, you’re on it right now! Most just don’t want to go see the show for whatever reason and that’s okay, but for those of use who choose to brave the up front seating, it hasn’t disappointed. The tickets are not free, even though they may seem that way at first, but there is a price to be paid.

For example, truth is alienating. Yep, who’d have thought. It seems that all truth is at odds with at least some of everyone’s chosen reality. We accept what we can, change what we can, and ignore the rest. There can be no other way. Whether you live in a palace or a prison cell, truth is there and so are we. The details are often unpleasant in both places from time to time I imagine. Even here in Turtle Town truth abounds. Here I will tell you the truth of Turtle Town, with offense to none, for the citizens here abide in truth. Natural Law is the truth of Turtle Town. It does not vary, as true this moment as it has always been.
