    I always seek to emulate the turtle.Β  After all, he lets trouble just roll off his back, he knows when to dig in and wait out a storm. And he never gets anywhere without sticking his neck out!

    I'm sitting here watching my four turtles

    sunning themselves on their floating log. They're babies, just a year old, all red-eared sliders. Eventually I hope to add two baby spotted turtles and some baby painted turtles to the pond. I've always loved turtles and studied them extensively.
