It was the darnedest thing. I was maybe 7 or 9 years old and I was biking to my friends house in our neighborhood. I was about to turn into his driveway when I noticed there was this large brown or black furry animal chillin’ on the side of a tree. It was kinda like it was hugging it. It had a big flat tail. At first I was like, “woah, what’s that thing?” Then I was like, “this is scary!” So I went inside and told my friend about it and we went outside to look at it but it was gone. But as we were standing outside someone drove by in a car and they said, “did you just see that thing on that tree a few minutes ago? I think it was a beaver.” I think it was a beaver, too.
Also, one time that same friend found a turtle outside behind his house so he spray painted the letter “K” on it’s shell. Then we found the same turtle a year later in our yard with the letter “K” still there. Crazy.
I have actually seen a groundhog walking to my gym(I was walking to the gym, not the groundhog.) It lives in the woods and ate most of my neighbor’s vegetable garden last summer. Turtles live 40-50 years…..so keep your eyes peeled for that “K” turtle. Dad
