Sunday Selfie ~ Rescued

Today we are having a diffurent kind of selfie...
Yesterday if you read our bloggie, you would have noted that the petcretary left all of us at the den and went for a long walk, north on our road. Its been newly paved, so the walking was good...well, that is until she got to the next county...yup, she walked so far she entered the next county! Wow. No new pavement there, LOL!
Anypaws, she saw lots of interesting things. But when she was about 2.5 miles north of our den she thought she saw some poor critter writhing on the road, newly hit by a vehicle.  Howevfur when she got a bit closer, she saw what she thought was writhing, were the legs of a turtle.
Oh, MY!
This critter was trying to cross the road, and a few cars and trucks had narrowly missed it. Yikes. So the petcretary helped it make a selfie, and then she picked up Mr/Mrs Turtle and placed it on the grass. Said turtle shut her/himself into its shell and so no more selfies were allowed, LOL! At least the petcretary was glad she had walked that way to help rescue this turtle:)
 Here you can see the turtle's markings a bit better:
Not sure what the petcretary would have done if that had been a snapper...yikes!! Gotten a big stick to move it she supposes...
Here are some other nice and interesting views and things  she saw while she walked:
We really need some good rain...Texas will you send it our way soon??
Can you see the varmint?
There he is!
A field of ripening grain.
Closeup of that grain,not sure exactly what type it is?
This horsey was disturbed in its grazing work.
Waubascon Creek, looking to the east.
An old farmstead
Farm equipment...
A working windmill

A decorative windmill and a martin house.

Curious young cows
Not sure, but thinking these are Jersey heifers.
Do you think the postman can reach up this high??
Um...no wonder its up so high, LOL!
Zinnias (at home again)
Not sure anymore of the name of these daisy like flowers.
And in case you had thought we were furgotten...here are some selfies of us!
MJF howling at the emergency siren testing...arooooo!
Still howling...aroo-whooo-arooooooo!
Now I need a good roll...
Phew, its warm out here!

  6. Great photos! I am glad your Mom was able to save the turtle, he is cute- yes, a snapper would have been a problem. Your Mom had a nice scenic walk. I am glad she remembered to include the 3 of you. You are all looking wonderful.

      Once she had to get a snapper out of the fence fabric...it was trying to get through...what a mean critter. It tried to take the end of the shovel off of the handle...OMC! Eventually she got it into a wheelbarrow and took it to the creek...and all the time it was thrashing and hissing...What a nightmare if it had gotten out of the wheelbarrow...

  12. Oh My Catness what a wonderful adventure the petcretary went on. So glad mr/mrs tur-tell is safe. We are thinking those are oats and seems like MJF is sowing his with all that howling. MOL. Rolling in the grass is sure fun. Pipo and Minko we love you two and you always bring a smile to our faces.
    Now about the bloggie.
    Better change the name we see from 04447497... etc. I think you can go into your profile and change it. You only get one change if we remember right.
    Purrs to all and to all a good day
