Grampa Liberty suffered a tragic accident nearly 20 years ago. He remembers,
"I had one foot in the water fountain over there, and I was talkin' to
this young person. Well we talked and talked, and it seemed like it were
only 15 minutes, but I reckon near an hour had gone by. Well.. when I looked
down at my foot there in the fountain, I saw that old snappin' turtle had
darn near snipped off everything up to the ankle!" Grampa had to have his
entire leg amputated. It was replaced with a wooden leg. "Now I stick that
leg in the fountain, and that old turtle can snip and snap at it all he
wants!" He says. "Sometimes I just sit there for hours and hours just talkin'
to folks. Then I look down at that old turtle, and he looks back up at
me.. and we just laugh and laugh!"
