    Yeah, I thought even turtles need two to tango.

    Have you looked in the sky for a new star lately?

    I’m reminded of the P.G. Wodehouse line about “the male codfish who, becoming the father of six million little codfish, cheerfully resolves to love them all.”

    Girl chickens will lay eggs with nary a rooster in site. (Of course, said eggs will never hatch, not being fertilized). Could be a similar thing here.

    I wonder what a turtle-egg omelet would be like…

    According to box turtle websites, old girl can, um, “store the goods” of her romps with the rosy eyed devil we introduced to the backyard LAST YEAR for up to THREE YEARS!

    But, goofy me, I thought THAT was the explanation for last’s month’s nest. I didn’t know she could dole it out…if she can.

    Could be parthenogenesis, known to happen to some reptiles.

    Kinda sounds like my love life, Hah, Hah
    In philosophical circles it could be how Jesus was conceived. I don’t believe I went there>>>
