A Funny Photo

If you didn't know, I have a turtle named Franklin. Often, I let him loose in our backyard to roam around on the grass. I also have a little property-mate named Matty, who happens to have a soccer goal. Sometimes he leaves his soccer goal out on the grass. So, can you tell me why this picture is funny?
If you didn't get it the first time, here is another one of my turtle named Franklin.
I bet you never knew a turtle could be so entertaining that one just feels compelled to run in the house for the camera to take pictures of it.

Another thing you should know about Franklin is that he loves Chuck:

And as an added bonus, here are some action shots:

My thought at this point in life is that dogs are high maintenance, require one to be mostly immobile, and can be expensive. Turtles on the other hand are easy, allow one to travel, and are pretty cheap. Plus, dogs only live 12-15 years, while Franklin is apparently supposed to live for 100 years. I highly recommend a turtle as the perfect pet.

Goal this week: Start writing about something peace and justice related, so stay tuned if you like that sort of thing. If you prefer turtles, then here you go.
