Here is a short story about Fred:
My initial reaction was that it might be banal, but it took just a few seconds for me to connect and it concluded with a few tears. (Tears of now appreciating something I had rarely contemplated)

Thanks David. Geat find.
Note: This story also reminded me of the many times back in the 1960’s that my family visited the famed Turtle Back Zoo in West Orange, NJ where I had the opportunity to ride on these magnificent creatures.
