Dear Friends,
This is our new friend, Mr. T.
We found him today on the side of the road.

I have an Uncle who used to kill turtles who were trying to cross the road. It broke my heart. In my teens, I had two turtles. One was named Angus and the other was Neville. They were very kind and didn't give me allergies. I was one of those girls. Thank goodness I'm not allergic to puppies or Bono. That would be so sad. I am allergic to kitties and that makes Dan super sad. He loves kitty cats. One of his favorite things to do is go on drives around the USM campus and look for kitties. Daniel is super cute. Sometimes we make bets to see who can see a kitty first. Then the other has to buy them a McDonald's ice cream cone. Dan always wins. He is really good at it.

Well, we brought Mr. T home with us to chill in our garden for the afternoon. We're going to take him back to his home on the side of the road. Far away from the cars. A turtle needs some Independence, you know?

That's cute! I wish he would live in your garden.

This reminds me of when mom bug bombed the house and you had to brave the fumes to save your turtle.

I used to see these guys all the time. I didn't think much about them until I moved to CA
