Good morning fellow CDRers.
Another sunny day in Costa Del Wales, but rain is on its way next week so going to make the most of it this weekend.
Waiting for the ground to warm up a bit more before I try Lola outside again.
He is still in bed at the moment but he was up until almost 11 last night and wouldn't go to bed even with his lights off.
Maybe it was something to do with the full moon - perhaps he's a weretort:eek:
Hope everyone has a lovely Saturday.

Hi all, I cant remember if it was here in the CDR or not. Somebody here I think gave me reference books on weed ID. I wrote them down and cant find them. If it was a other thread I cant find.
Any help would be appreciated.
Was www.thetortoisetable.org.uk one of them or actual books?

Hi all! Had a short visit from my great grand kids yesterday. They brought me a cupcake that gramma helped them make. It has a Peeps on top - my favorite Easter candy! Can't say much for the appearance of the cup cake except it looked like they had fun making them!! Misty loves it when they come over.

I love the potato heads in Toy Story!
When I was in uni I knew someone who had a false eye, and if people made the mistake of asking him to keep an eye on their chair or drink, that's exactly what he did!
It was pretty funny to see their reaction when they came back to find an eye on their chair or by their drink!!
That’s hilarious [emoji38]

Happy Saturday everyone [emoji851]
The heat is starting to set in here.
It was 99F yesterday and will be 97F Here comes the heat. The torts are doing great Shelly is her onry self. She has figured out the backdoor beeps when it opens. Shelly has gotten into the routine of parking herself next to little wall that resides right next to the backdoor when it it’s dinner time. If anyone knows Shelly, she is subtle as sledgehammer [emoji217]

Good morning!
Finally getting some beautiful weather today! We have had enough spring cleaning! Any more rain and we will be washed away!
Carol, hate that you have to work today and hope to see more pics of your shelled family enjoying the outdoors when they can..
Noel, I hope your seeing clearly for Easter! Shelly is going to make sure that you don’t miss her..
Mark, looks like you have been busy enough.. I do hope the weather gives you a break and enjoy the weekend now.
Yvonne, I’ll bet misty isn’t the only one who enjoys the visit from the kiddos! My daughter loves the flavored peeps.. that’s her “easter thing. I still leave them as a surprise for her. She will never be too old for favorite treats:)
Kathy, glad to read you back! Can’t wait to see your pics!
Ray... you can get mazuri at your feed store? I’m jealous!
Lyn- it’s not Lola’s fault that she prefers indoors! It’s one of the perks of being unique [emoji23]
Linda, what are you up too?? How was the forest?
Cathy, I’d fill your rain barrel if I could but I want to see some pics of Sapphire please.

I’m running out of breath on the treadmill so I’ll cut this short.. I’m sure I’ll remember something else later:) HAPPY SATURDAY!

Breathing Treatment? Can you explain what that is?
Hello CarolM. I have to do a once daily inhalation powder for COPD and emphasima. To find the right one has been really difficult because I have food and drug allergies. Plus I have nasal allergies to pollen, dust, and especially grass mowing. I did finally find the right one. Now I need to find the right allergy treatment so I can eat better. And I will. I don't have time to be sick. I'm a survivor.

Oops, It was Linda that gave me the formula. But I changed it to. F = ( C x 1.8 (9/5 = 1.8)) +32 and C= (F-32)/1.8
It still worked. I'm always trying to convert the metric system to what I know. Right now I'm trying to figure out exactly how big a betta gets so he doesn't get stuck somewhere in his yet to be new home.

Sun has been out now for a few hours and I guess the storms really have passed us by. A few tornados to the south of us in Virginia. So, Sully is out grazing away. It’s windy and cool when the wind is blowing, but the sun hits things up (like a 70 lb tortoise’s shell).

The sun’s rays have warmed up our deck as well. One of our resident lizards out basking.

There are several species of lizards that live in Maryland, but only two species are likely to be seen in the home landscape: the five-lined skink, and the eastern fence lizard. Lizards eat insects and lay eggs in the spring under rotten logs or in the outer parts of a compost pile where the heat from the sun incubates them.

Nice. They must give Misty extra hugs, kisses, and leave crumbs.
