Roaring Snapper

Jimmy & his catch

Yesterday afternoon I received one of those get-out-here-and-get-some-photos calls.  The heavy rainfall caused some major flooding in Frankfort, KY that brought our railroad to a halt.  When I got out there I met up with a man named Jimmy.  Jimmy has a company truck that is equipped with Hi-Rail gear, which means it can lower railroad wheels to travel on the rail so we could get to some places further down the line.  I was climbing into the bed of the truck when he said, “Watch out for the turtle!”  He had found a displaced snapper, and was planning on some turtle soup. We took it out of the truck and got some fun photos of it.  Jimmy was pretty proud.

I can't tell... is that a smile?
