I have known Jim since grade School.
Our hang out in the 1950s was down at the old Sioux River,!the Indian trails below Sherman Park.
We commandeered the old summer cabins Don Doufit owned on the banks of the old river channel between the par 3, hole # 9 & hole # 1. Jim brought decals of the blonde kid on the Squirt pop bottles, & Pepsi decals, to decorate the summer cabins.Jim had brought his dads fork spade to dig for worms. We saw a large turtle, & planted that pitch fork in the turtles shell. The turtle took off into the water, with Jim trying to recover the spade.He got the spade.
The next day, the turtle was laying on the opposite bank, with fork holes in his back.Jim or Butch Christiansen loaded the turtle into a wagon & took it home to make turtle soup.? This was on the island, I think was later made into Dennis The Menace Park, & the retired jet plane.
