Wink GC'ers, Are you a turtle?

I am curious to know if there are any turtles on GC...

If you don't know what I am talking about, don't worry.

If you are one, you know the appropriate answer.

YBYSAIA! Even have the membership card and pin to prove it!

If you ever go to the National Air and Space Museum (the main one, not the annex at Dulles), in the 'Apollo to the Moon' exhibit you'll see some cue cards made by Apollo 7 commander Wally Schirra. One of them asks Chief Astronaut (and fellow Original Mercury 7 member) Deke Slayton 'are you a turtle?' Deke, being an initiated Turtle, gave the proper response to the question on a private comm channel.

No dammit.

I've been an active in my org since spring 2002 and I still don't know what this means.

It's only an APO thing, right?

YBYSAIA! And I can't believe that you started this thread because I was going to last week when I found my old Turtle card from 1971! It's signed by the Imperial Turtle of Dixie....

Now you have piqued my interest... what is a turtle and how do you become one? I thought it was a DZ thing when I first read it.

YBYSAIA!

I got turtled as a pledge of APO in 1993. Since then I've turtled several people myself. I thought it was just an APO thing at first.

My card says that we can subscribe new Turtles. It tells how and you know what I mean! But are we allowed to do it online?

I thought it was just an APO thing for a VERY long time as well.

(Still looking for Turtles to "make" me )

I was turtled when I pledged APO as well. This was in spring of 1997 at a hotel in Denton I had a TON of trouble not laughing...and...thinking pure thoughts

I know that I had my card when I moved to RI, but I honestly do not know where it is now. I think it must be in with all my memorbilia (sp?).


Anyway, YBYSAIA!!!!!!!!!!! (had to answer my own question )

I dunno if you can be turtled online...

I almost forgot...after I was turtled, I found out that my father was one...he and a bunch of the early astronauts had a lot of fun with it in the sixties.

There was some story about another of the astronauts being asked if he was one on national TV and he replied, "I'll buy you that drink."

I think this is another secret society. I think I heard that both Bush and Kerry are members. (Hee Hee)

I, however, am a Cardinal. Anyone else from the 60's a Cardinal?
