“Good Lord, Woman! Have You No Sense of Decency?”

Mort’s simmering outrage and wounded dignity on display after being snapped à la compromising position in the Frisbee.

Yup. And the internet is forever, turtle.

You should of thought of that first. Gotten up a little earlier.

    I saw a turtle run 75 yards and jump 15 feet in the air to bring one down. What’s Mort’s best?

    And FAST!!!

    Honestly. I’m not sure. We plug up holes as best we can, have some fencing that goes down below the dogears if they’re not below grade, and hope for the best. Plus, it seems like box turtles aren’t really burrowers like the gophers turtles are, from what I hear from other turtle people, so we’re pretty lucky…so far.

    Or he’s just spoiled with the hand cut buffet that gets spread by his swimming pool every morning. Judging by the way he paces up and down in front of the patio door about 8 a.m., that might play a big part.

    He’s a very handsome tuttle.

    As you can see, Aunt Ave, it’s because he’s tres particular about his hygiene.

    Ah, the joys of a terrapin bidet.

    That’s funny – Mort clearly is frowning. In the last set of pix (last week?) he was smiling in every picture. Who knew that tortugas have such expressive widdle faces!

    I do believe he’s taking a crap…

    (If you’ve ever wondered where Ebola gets his stunning social acumen and poetic way with words…)

    With maid service, Bingley.

    I know, RR! major dad says all the time it’s amazing that a turtle can have personality, but they do. He cracks us up continually.

    Well, he DID. Probably’ll go on strike or something pissy now.

    Funny, when I saw the picture of Mort sitting in a Frisbee, the first thing that came to my mind was……

    Turtle soup.

  13. major dad says:

    It’s a frisbee Jeff not a tureen, food, it’s always food…

    Can I help it if you guys keep on talking about serving meat?
