Here’s Something We Haven’t Seen

February 22, 2016 by admin in Readers Respond

I enjoyed your latest Dogwood Journal. I am striving mightily to get back to writing. I started with some Daily Devotionals the last two weeks, but I want just as much to resume my outdoor writing. So I’m taking on your challenge, “Ever seen anything like that?”

I’m pretty sure I could collect enough incredible stories to write an article, but for now, here’s a teaser:

Fishing from the bank of a small lake at a public fishing area, I spotted a half dozen turtles sunning themselves on a floating log about 10 feet long. Soon another turtle, larger than the others, swam up and starting climbing aboard the makeshift tanning bed.

As he clawed his way up, the log started turning, and the other turtles had to execute some fancy footwork to avoid getting dunked. It quickly became a logrolling contest as the log’s teetering turned to spinning. One by one, the turtles gave up their perches and slid into the water.

The bigger turtle patiently waited for the log to stop moving, then climbed up with a smug grin on his face.

The moral of the story? Income equality doesn’t work for long!
