Good morning from foggy Kent!

Visibility is gradually improving and the temperature is forecast to be very warm and sunny today across the whole country. :)


Today I have lunch with a friend and an evening governor meeting
Good Morning and Good luck.

Enjoy your lunch with your friend.

Good morning all

First...our thoughts are with those who are in the path of that darn hurricane getting ready to surge its way into the Florida panhandle.... stay safe!

Second...did you all know that it’s “World Porridge” day today?

Third...it’s probably our last full day of Summertime temperatures here today.... forecast high of 83F....but rains move in tomorrow....and that will be it. The next 10 days.....not higher than mid-60’s. :-(. So. I’m heading out for a few hours of morning kayaking on the calm, warm Summer waters......truck is loaded, just enjoying some coffee...and i have plenty of time before sunrise at 0710.

Okay All caught up and ready to go.
It is thankfully not as hot today has the last three to four days have been. The torts are outside enjoying the sunshine and fresh breeze.

And I am going through all my photo's for the calendar contest. Problem is that it is so difficult to choose which one I like the best, as we are only allowed one submission. When you have more than one tort it gets really difficult to choose. Oh well, hopefully I will make the right choice and go from there. Who else is entering a photo for the contest?

Looking at Mark's pictures of porridge has made me hungry, so I think I am going to go and make my lunch a tad early today.

Not see you all later.

Thanks for asking! I've been thinking of you guys, but I didn't get a chance to check in until, well, now.

I spent all day packing up pets and supplies to evacuate. Fortunately, my relocation site (my parents' place) is only 15 minutes from where I live.

I finally got my herd of cats (x8), the turtles (1 box turtle and the 2 Micro Muds), and bearded dragon unloaded and indoors. Still have to unload more supplies this evening.
Praying for you and hoping the best that the storm is not too bad. Im am thinking of you and your pets. Stay safe. Good luck.

What chance do we have of teaching proper tortoise rearranging practices when we’ve got to complete with fake things like this? I’m sure someone will see that were I did and start telling all their friends. View attachment 253741
Not a lot that can be done there.. there are not that many willing to learn anymore... but the few who are will seek the truth and not put much thought behind this..... maybe:))

Yesterday a woman brought me a brand new hatchling sulcata and I'm expecting to be getting some hatchling desert tortoises on Sunday. I like to keep hatchlings until they're a year old, so I'll have these a while. I guess my dream of not having enclosures indoors has just flown the coop!
Enjoy the little babies. They grow so fast.:)

Good morning Linda!
It’s always beautiful when the fog moves out revealing bright shiny new world... I’d like to see that in Kent one day... enjoy lunch and I hope the meeting is short!

We had a cool front blow in this week and my torts don’t like it!! They will be glad for the sun to come around again!
I am waiting to see the reply on multiple torts in one photo or only singles... then the choices will begin:)
Have a great day Carol!
