I'm so sorry about your friend Gene, Maggie. My best to you & yours. You have Red for a reason even if we can't fathom why right now.So the little Redfoot (Red) continues trying to escape. I can't take pictures without a camera...but this little tortoise is determined to leave, yesterday he was on his back 4 times in 15 minutes and I will guarantee I am freakin way tired of going out to check on him. He has solid 4 foot fence on 3 sides and my house on the 4th. He ain't getting out. He eats anything I give him, but he simply is not happy. Me neither...he's a pain in my a**. I wish you could see the less than a pound Red sinking to the bottom of the pond... evidently he can't swim. But Mary Knobbins at 30 pounds does not sink and she swims and seems to enjoy it. HA!
My wild flowers are blooming, the ROS are leafed out and are starting to form buds. Gonna bloom soon. The Morning Glories in their new spots are blooming but not happy. The grape vines are growing and Mary has eaten grape leaves for 2 days now, very happy. Things here are fine and all the animals are loving the sun.
Got a male T. ornata ornata, over grown beak and nails...the keeper is moving to Alaska and brought him to the pet store I deal with and I will pick 'him' up in a couple of hours. he's 15 yrs old. I have 5 female ornata, don't want a male...so things in Corvallis are happening...I'm going to a Memorial today for my friend who was run over and killed by a garbage truck. I hate those things and mostly don't go...but Gene was my friend.
