one way or another i'm gunna to git ya!

I started the night out learning how to care for a baby opossum. kind of not even cute when they are young.
Then I cleaned the flight room. There were a lot of baby and juvenile barn swallows in one of the sections. I had to save a few from getting too wet. They were so cute.
Lastly, be careful with what you become good at. I had to help clean the snapping turtles again. ie.... i got to lift all 8 of them (one at a time, of course)! I tell you, some are very feisty. As much as most of them tried, the face didn't get me but the claw did! I have a nice scratch across my right hand. It's getting a bit puffy this morning. I would show you, but ALAS, my camera was broken yesterday during a day with Rick and the kids at Valley fair. :-( no photos for today!!!
