Sepia Saturday- My turtle

I won this award in 1951 for my pet turtle at John Adams Playground in San Diego. I wonder how many turtles were in the turtle division? I only got third place !

I know I got another much better award but I couldn't find it. I think it was for Best Pet Trick. (or maybe it was for Best Turtle Trick.) It said on the award Best Trick- Standing Turtle. It could stand upright in my hand. Of course, I had to balance it just right.

I really don't remember much about this turtle. Don't even remember his (or her) name. Poor thing!

I remember my Horned Toad a lot better. I kept it in a shoe box, outside. It rained one day and the box split and he (or she) got out. While trying to capture it I accidentally stepped on it. Blood spurted out of every orifice. I was appalled but picked it up and put it into a new box where it recovered and lived happily ever after.
