Woke up this morning to deep dark clouds and rain…… lots of both. At first I thought I just woke up early because it was so dark in the bedroom….. but when I came stumbling out – it was almost 06:45~! Woo-hoo~~~ Went and did my bathroom thing and came out for that first smoke of the day. Sadly — it was raining and blowing so hard…. I did not even unlock the storm gates on our patio. I stood pressed back against the glass windows, just to keep from getting soaked. Little did I realize, that was to set the course for the rest of the day~~~ My Bride got up shortly after I had came back in and we did our daily routine of checking in with the rest of the world……. we had some breakfast, we watched NYPD Blues and ducked out between rain showers for the occasional cigarette.
Toward the afternoon, during one of our nicotine breaks, Angie asked if that looked like a turtle [pointing to a spot just off of the patio]….. I looked at what [I thought] she was pointing at and said no. Undeterred, she said step over here (where she was standing) which I did. Sure enough from my new vantage point, was one of our little babies from the other night. At first I thought it was dead, I reached down and picked him up and he (thankfully) started kicking. I guess the poor little dude was trying to get back up into the bushes, but was apparently worn out from his effort. My first instinct was to walk him out to the water, but wanting to share that moment with you, I decided (since it was daylight) to get a couple of pictures first~! I took some pictures and then waded out knee deep into the water and let him loose. He really came to life when he hit that water and was gone in a flash. We hope he is one of the lucky survivors~!
It’s still raining and blowing off and on and we’re still watching NYPD Blue but a little happier we helped saved that little turtle~! My Queen made up a big batch of Spaghetti (one of my favorites) and I have eaten way more than I should have. Belly bloated and mostly miserable – I’m gonna get this out early so I can return to the couch and let my belly rest while we get into Season # 5 of the series. If the forecast I’m watching is correct, we have another 4-5 days of this weather….. so we’ll have to greet each new day and see if these forecasters are any better than the ones back in the states. Right now they’re one for one~~~
Good night Ya’ll —– Thankx for stopping in~!
Rain on the way~!
Our lost little ‘baby’~~
