Once upon a time we were driving on the back roads of Maryland...
We happened upon a turtle crossing the road and decided to name him Mud Butt.
Mud Butt was quite shy at first and didn't want to come out of his shell.
But with a little coaxing, he emerged and gave us a smile.
We eventually bade good bye to our little friend and he quickly escaped into the bushes on the road side. Live long and prosper my turtle friend :)
