     Yesterday I was driving by Fish Lake when I almost hit a descent sized snapping turtle.  I pulled over to the side of the road, grabbed a big stick out of the ditch, and proceeded to assist the turtle off of the road.  He or she took several snaps at my stick breaking the end off each time.  It wasn't to happy being moved from it's warm location.   I finally got it moved over to the ditch where I was able  to take a picture or two.  i grabbed it by the tail and place a hand under its shell, then I was able to walk it back into the woods toward the lake.
     I received several funny looks from the cars passing by, so of you were one of them, Yes that really was a snapping turtle being carried.  It must have been a funny sight.

Blue and Gold Celebration- by Orion

The blue and gold celebration

On Friday April 29th their was a celebration. It was for a thing called cub scouts. I got two belt loops for music and photography. Some people know the TV show called Minuet to Win in it.

One game you had to stack 5 apples on top of each other and my mom won that in about 15 seconds. Another game you had to get 3 cookies in your mouth from your forehead without using your hands. The game that I played was when you have to try to roll marbles across a table and get 5 to stick to tape .

At the end everyone played with streamers.
That is a blue and gold celebration.
