Who Said Turtles are Slow?

When I went out to feed this morning, I gabbed to Jeff a bit and then I was in the back yard and out of the corner of my eye I saw something...not a lizard, not a horny toad, not a...ugh scorpion...but a turtle...and he was moving along at a great speed.

Turtle

I took a double take...a turtle?  Ok so the kid in me was like can I keep him? So I had Jeff come over and he said it was a box turtle. He said they are great escape artists.

Turtle in shell

Look how adorable he is all stuck in his shell, I mean he looks like a little dinosaur. 

So I don't know if this is silly or what but I think God made me see this little creature, cause if I had not he would have just kept walking and I am sure a dog would have killed him.

So I put him in a plastic tote (let him escape from there) and looked up on the internet what to do.  Jeff called our neighbor as his Aunt used to raise them.

Sure enough this little guy had escaped from the neighbors, they just got him a couple days ago and did not even know he was missing. Hopefully they will get him a houdini proof living arrangement cause the chances of this happening again are probably nil. Although that horny toad showed back up after a month didn't he?

My good deed for the day was done.

Ugh my back has been screaming since I got back from Thailand, I might need to go to my massage girl. I also am still having throat issues and they want to do an esophagram, my little sister Jacqui said not to worry, so I won't. She's the medical brain in the family so I will listen to her. Any of you had one before? How bad was it? I am a gagger, I hope they knock me out.

Best Squeeze

Monica Gale Thailand Swap

On the Thailand Incentive trip it is for the whole Demonstrator base that earns the trip, so that means global, and those really are the best parts of the trip seeing friends from all over the country.  Monica Gale from the UK is so fun and sweet and I saw her from afar and never got to chat with her till we saw her in the hall and she gave us both "a squeeze" even Jeff got a great big one. Gotta love her, so I was so excited to have gotten her beautiful card in my swap bag, shown above...and what a perfect sentiment eh? Thanks Monica for the beautiful card and the squeeze!!! You don't know whose card you are going to get, we turn in our bag of 26 cards and pick up a bag at the end of the trip. Stampin' Up! does the swapping.
