__An abrupt stop, and flashers; the driver, my wife quick to the rescue, carried the turtle across the road to its destination... the pond.

Good for your wife! I like what you did with the event, too!

Humanity encroaches upon the natural habitat of so many other species and then at some point needs to help undo the damage done as in the case of this turtle. This brings to mind so many questions. A thought-provoking post Magyar.

Turtles live a long time.
I have a pet turtle since i was 10 years old, that makes it 25 years old.
It knows a lot of secrets and stories.
Who knows if the turtle you both saved won´t some day share this story with your grandchildren when they reach your age.
It is rewarding to give nature a litlle push back into the pond,isn´t it ?!
All the best my friend.
