Sign spotted this morning on light pole at Fitzhugh and Swiss: "Lost Turtle. He is six inches long. Reward. 214 826 3378." Sign includes photo of very cute turtle.
C'mon, folks. You don't put up posters of your turtle unless you're really hurting. Has anybody seen this bad boy? Give the number above a call if you have. I got an answering machine. They're probably out calling for him now. I just hope he's not a runner. Or her. Girl turtles can be worse in that regard. --Jim Schutze
