Shopping Idea No. 1

Don't know what to get the kids for the holidays? How about a Mutant Ninja turtle car? Not sure, but the spikes certainly add a certain fear factor to this remote-controlled turtle car. Looks fun, too.

Giving Thanks

And on Thanksgiving, turtles may not be the first thing you think about when you sit down at the dinner table (at least I hope not), but these temptations fresh from the oven may change your mind.

Thanks to all my visitors and fans for loving turtles!

Serenity Today

Thank you, for this video!

Sea turtles are characterized by a long, streamlined shell. Depending on the species, sea turtles color range can be olive-green, yellow, greenish-brown, reddish-brown, or black. Limbs and flippers are adapted for swimming. Adult male and female sea turtles are equal in size.

Sniffing for Freedom

Today I found an opening in the barrier off the deck and sniffed it out. I could have flown the coop right there, but decided against it. Life's too good.

Packed and Ready

With mobile storage like this, who wouldn't want to have a little turtle pack in their life? Even though I don't need one, I still want one.

Yertle the Turtle

From the collection of Dr. Seuss:

On the far-away island of Sala-ma-Sond,
Yertle the Turtle was king of the pond.
A nice little pond. It was clean. It was neat.
The water was warm. There was plenty to eat.
The turtles had everything turtles might need.
And they were all happy. Quite happy indeed.

...Then Yertle the Turtle was perched up so high,
He could see forty miles from his throne in the sky!
“Hooray!” shouted Yertle. “I’m the king of the trees!
I’m king of the birds! And I’m king of the bees!
I’m king of the butterflies! King of the air!
Ah, me! What a throne! What a wonderful chair!
I’m Yertle the Turtle! Oh, marvelous me!
For I am the ruler of all that I see!”

Exit Stage Left

Another nice day this weekend and I'm ready to go play outside. I keep thinking my outdoor days are coming to an end and next thing you know... Indian summer. Love it. I'm running....

The Humpty Dance

What can I say about the love being exchanged between two consenting terrapins... in public. On the front lawn. For all to enjoy. (the little lady seems so demure compared to his long, heaving "neck")

Apologies for the topic, but it is nature, after all!

Spider on frog on turtle. How cool is that?

Get a Grip

Who doesn't love when critters play with each other harmoniously?
All I can say is: HOP ON! The Turtle Train is Leaving!

Butterflies are Free

To play with! And boy, does it feel good when they flutter my back and neck! I noticed that the monarchs are still in the area and they are awfully pretty. I wonder what they taste like.

Hop On

Even though I support the "Do Not Stand on Me" movement, I will cave for a furrball this cute, so hop on – let's go for a ride!

I will attack this tasty, juicy treat with a vengeance reserved only for those I despise. (Watch out, Roger, I haven't forgotten you are still around)

Please Don't

You can stand BY me, just not ON me, thank you!
