100WW — Boy On a Turtle

0682AED6-C92A-4673-8F8C-B5688347F94AThe legend of the boy on the turtle was well known throughout the village. It was a rainy Monday and the boy didn’t want to get his feet wet. So he summoned his pet tortoise, climbed upon its back, and directed it to carry him across the street to his school. The turtle readily obliged, and the boy managed, despite the downpour, to keep both of his feet dry.

Word of this miracle spread quickly. The town elders commissioned an artist to commemorate the event in bronze and placed the statue in the town’s pond for all villagers to admire.

    Most of the turtles I have seen around here are not big enough to ride. Cute story!
