I have to give them credit.
Those turtles are better-educated than I thought.
I caught them reading Amos Alden’s Big Book of Handspinning to the other day. Which probably makes this whole thing my fault, really, since it was the only reading material left on the table with them.
But seriously, who knew turtles could read?
Earlier today, I spotted them staring intently at this pile of wool:
Then I made the catastrophic mistake of leaving the turtles and sheep alone in the studio together. The next thing I knew…
Fortunately, the turtles are not particularly large and have not yet studied physics. Or see-saws. Note to self: DO NOT take these critters to the playground.
When they finally gave up on the cards, being unable to heave them high enough for actual use, I figured they’d move on to something else altogether.
I was partially right.
They did move on to something else, but it wasn’t altogether different.
Note to self: Store tools and turtles on different tables.
The problem One of the many problems with sheep is that if one decides to do something is lured helplessly into an awkward situation, the rest sign on without a backward glance.
In fact, a backward glance might have helped here.
I don’t like to say it, but I believe I may have to separate these critters. And lock them out of the studio.
