A Big Guy
This is one of many, who crawls up from the nearby lake for a swim at Beth's house. But when he saw Beth, he turned and headed for the lake. When Beth leaned down to give me a ride on his shell, I thought he'd stop and pull his head in and give me a moment to enjoy the view. But he just raced faster and I fell backwards on his shell!
Just in Time!
Beth had time to snap one blurry pic before she snatched me off his shell. I almost ended up in that muddy lake!
My mom gave me this tiny bear over 25 years ago... because I like small things.
