i love dick.

li'l dick.....who SAiD girls don't like it?!!

i just love this time of year. i'm officially changing my favorite season to spring from fall. i just can't get over the jasmine wafting in the air and the feeling of life renewing itself. yes, even california has seasons, although winter is nothing compared to where i grew up....rhythms are still felt here.

my biggest joy, having moved here 5 years ago, are the turtles i adopted. yeeees, adopted. chuck was leery to introduce me to them, as most girls might not take to dirty, slow, stinky things. but, i knew as soon as i saw 'em, they'd be my 'kids' too, cuz anything chuck loved....well, i'd love, too.

so, li'l dick (named after li'l richard, who ran away a few years back, the brat!) came out and ordered his meal today without skipping a beat....just as though he hadn't been hibernating the last 6 months. i love the fact that we'll probably have to will our turts to people, as they can live a solid 100+ years. they're strangely lovable, contrary to popular belief, so i suspect we'll have no problems passing them on. but, i haven't lived through the horrible 'teen years,' so, ya never know..

No no no no ......

When he graduates the culinary academy and becomes an accomplished chef, he's going to be making some very tasty soups.

What, did you think I meant something else?

Finally, the little loafer wakes up! Now where's his older sister turtle, still sawing logs somewhere in the atrium?

And does lil Dick smell like, well, like ass? He's such the stinker, him and Jozee must be using the same "Teen Spirit."

I am still trying to figure out what my new tortoise (little Roy) is fond of. He only eats the grass in the back yard. I tried lettuce, grapes, I need to try some more food. And I have not seen him drink any water. Big Roy drinks like a fish and eats all the food we can throw at him.

they sure are finicky li'l buggers, aren't they? for some reason dickey loooooooves corn. must be the starch? if little roy eats grass, you'd think he'd be a big veggie eater. i'd get a big bag of mixed veggies and just put 3 of each on a plate and see what gets gone. none of ours are big lettuce eaters either. oh, and you might just try a spoonful of canned dog food (not the poisoned kind!) good source of protein..

if nothing else, you don't need to mow your lawn now?!
