Turtle Story

There’s a YouTube channel called “Project Farm where a guy does testing of different products.

He tested 4 kinds of glue: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H4xX7VecgzA

But the really neat thing is in the comments, which is often the case:

3 years agoLong time J.B. Weld user, but still amazed by the results. One application it’s not suited for: muffler repair — or any continuous exposure to very high heat. Very suited for some rather unorthodox repairs: I used it to seal up a turtle’s shell that I apparently ran over with a bush hog and cracked it very severely, so that you could see his insides. By the time I found him, the flies had already blowed his innards, so I had to flush out the maggots with hydrogen peroxide. I always wondered if the repair worked to save his life, until I found him again over 3 years later, very much alive and kicking, J.B. Weld repair still intact. Needless to say, I named him J.B.

3 years agoThis story made me quite happy. I’m always saving animals most people never give a thought about. Like nursing frogs back to health that had been injured by cats or caring for injured birds. It’s the little things in life that make life worth living. I’ll JB the next turtle I find! lol

3 years ago @Gruntsworth  — Good to hear. If you think the story made you happy, imagine me finding him alive over 3 years later. Fortunately it was in an isolated hay field, well off the road so no one could see. But, I’m sure I looked the perfect fool, jumping up and down, whooping and hollering, and dancing all about, all while holding J.B.up in the air waving him around. LOL And to think, all it took was a little turtle to make me feel so happy. Your sentiments are spot on.
