RusticWildFire 11-19-2008 06:31 PM

Aww cute! I've always wanted a turtle...

Aww... What a gorgeus little guy :D. I had a tortoise when I was a kid. But s/he was more small-sized than your.

with the painted shells at stores. or the baby chicks that
were different colors.

He's an eating machine!!! A really ticked off eating machine, but an eating machine no less. As a matter of fact, he's refusing to be social at all while he's inside. Poor dude wants to go back to the yard soooo badly. Gonna have to give him a nice warm soak today to get his appetite up. He's refusing to eat and everything. :? Sherm and Panz are out and out aggressive now. Panz rams his pen all the time out of frustration. I can see now I'm going to be forced to move to some tropical island on the equator to keep them happy.

Well, I made the right decision. This house is cooooooooooold. Even the Herbinator stays snuggled. poor little Bradley would have had pneumonia by late August!

I think we need some current picks of Sherman! And her new man.

Puuuuu-lease??? :D:-P

Where is Bobby Ricky? I forget. Did he go to a new home?

Almost forgot to tell ya - your nails look fab-o-loose, dahling!

Johnswife 11-20-2008 01:49 PM

The nails didn't last. That's as good as they'll ever look and then they start breaking way back at the finger and I have to cut them off. They look horrible right now.

Bradley, AKA Ricky Bobby, is still with us. He's living with a friend in an indoor pen. And Gracie is totally in love with him. She climbs in the pen to sleep at night and snuggles all around him.

Alright all, you heard her. She asked for photos. This is all her fault!!!

Sherm and Panz on their first 'dinner date' after bringing Panz home. Panz is about 75 pounds and Sherm is up to about 45. They don't look it in the picture, but they're pretty solid torts - and still growing....

Some of my favorites of Sherm

Got herself high centered while she was playing under the grill and was not amused when daddy went for the camera:

Having a cucumber from daddy as a treat:

She found a pear on the ground (we didn't even know we had a pear tree) when we went for a walk out front one day. I tried to get it from her - fruits and veggies should be a very seldom snack for them - but she'd pull it inside her shell and tuck her legs in front of her. She's much stronger than I am so I just gave up and let her have her prize.

Chasing Kitten, one of her favorite games:

http://i371.photobucket.com/albums/o...eassign534.jpg

I was trying to sit down to take a good one of her but she kept coming after me wanting me to rub her head and neck. I'd have to go way far away and sit and then take the photo while she was walking at me.

Lemme go find some of Panz. Hang on.....

DashAwayAll 11-20-2008 09:38 PM

Yeah! ** Sighs happily ......*** Pics of the kids!

But ... I thought Bradley was Bradley and mad max became Bobby Ricky.... LOl, honey, you can call him anything you want.
