yertle the turtle

Yesterday Yertle the Turtle died. Well, more accurately, yesterday we discovered a dead turtle in the duck pond and named him Yertle the Turtle. We had a very solemn ceremony for him. Though not as solemn as the one for Craig, Chaela's fish. Some small children helped lay him to rest in his grave beneath a giant oak tree while Stephanie said a few words. It was rather moving.

Also there were paper boats. Rather fitting as today is May Day. (Get it?) Donnie's triumphed over all. Especially Merrill's. That is all.

You touched the turtle? Ew, now you are going to get turtle flu, spread it to others, and start a new pandemic. Thanks, Cassi
