Tortoise and the Hare ...

"Your friend is heavy,
But he was ready;
And never stopped for a while.

And while you were sleeping,
He went on keeping; the final mile in his mind ..."

Re: Tortoise and the Hare ...

This could very well be the anthem for how I backpack: Overloaded, not resting, and focused on the final mile :)

A tortoise

Actually terrapins are fresh and brackish water swamp turtles that are native to the eastern and southern U S.
I use to catch and collect them when I was a kid in Florida.

Grew up in St Pete. Do you hail from cracker country Grizz?

Re: A tortoise

I'd thought terrapin and tortoise were interchangeable, but you're right, and this is a desert tortoise. My play on Dead lyrics is scientifically incorrect. :)

Re: A tortoise

Which leads to the question :

Was the Dead in Florida? Suppose they played
a gig there, and came up with the title ???

Musicians are FUNNY that way.

Re: A tortoise

Could have been, but I'm sure they were in a 'Funny' way when they did come up with it.

Re: A tortoise

Should have caught that Dead word play. I had that album. Remember the tune 'Estimated Prophet'.
