In season and with a license you can harvest turtles. Last year we harvested a couple of good sized turtles. Dale is an expert at cleaning and cooking turtle. Nope... not turtle soup.
A man that lives at a nearby lake makes turtle shells into clocks. This one really turned out nice! He has three wall clocks, a microwave clock and the stove clock all in sight. I wonder where he is going to hang this one and how? (Think about it.)
The next one we may try to prepare the shell ourselves. Installing the mechanics don't look that difficult but I bet you need a really sharp drill bit. HEY I just realized ~ numbers missing! Just like the one learned on as a kid!
