The Black Brazilian Bug (they are actually know by another name down here (thingy is just starting in Louisiana. Found a few on my last ride before leaving for OK. They are only suppose to be above ground for 2 weeks but they don't all get out at the same time so it's usually about a month of them. Talk about bug splatter. Geesh.

Tooling about in the Upstate...two lane back roads...nice country scenery. I come upon this fellow traveler:

Excuse me sir? I wonder if I might trouble you for a photgraph?












Might I bother you one more time?? Sir?? Sir??..... Obviously this guy doesn't get it ...the potential for fame and fortune is HUGE. Just think of it...."Darth Turtle" in lights....



Well, call me the papparazi of ADV, cause I'm taking your pic ANYWAY, and I'm gonna post it all over the internet!!!!!.....




Ya coulda been a contender...fame, fortune, women. But you had to go camera shy on me...

I find you in the middle of the road, and offer a speedy delivery to safety, and this is how you repay me?? Ungrateful wretch...oh well. My conscience compels me to place you out of Harm's Way despite your lack of cooperation...good evenin', then. Fare thee well, Turtle.

Wow, I didn't realize turtles could completely seal themselves up inside like that.

I saw a HUGE box turtle the day before, but I didn't have my camera...what a missed opportunity! So the next day I went trolling for old barns, and on the way back to the park I saw him and HAD to get the pics....

That's what a lot of (my) picture taking is about.
I try never to let the phrase 'I wish I took that picture' come out.

Life is too short not to stop.

Greate turtle pics

No luck in finding the hole.
I finally make my way around her and decide I'll do something if she's still out and alive on my way back.

The worst was trying to maneuver the bike just to park it on the incline with my hurt wrist!

Sure enough.............

Sorry. A little late to the movies. Just catching back up this morning. Love the wrangling. Your herding video set to some classic Roy Rogers 'Don't Fence Me In' and wrapping up with 'Happy Trails' once the cow is in the fence just seems like a natural. Might need a filler tune in between to take up the minutes. A little cowgirl music to go with the wrangling. Give them a listen.

Good to see you back on a bike again.
