Turtles and Tortoises  
In a few hours we will be driving to San Luis Obispo. Tomorrow we will be going to the 14th Annual Turtle, Tortoise and Reptile Show.

We now have a total of twelve shelled friends.

Two Eastern Box Turtles
Six Three-toed Box Turtles
Two Russian Tortoises
One Silcata Tortoise
One California Desert Tortoise

It worries me when we go on trips together now. If something happens to us the turtles will be on their own for a long time. I keep telling Jim we need to make a plan for the turtles. Turtles and tortoises are really not good pets for children. They need special care and children get bored with them. I have this fear that if we both died our pets would be doled out to nieces, nephews and neighborhood kids.

nawah, don't let them do it!
