    thanks. She is my approximately 40-year-old desert box turtle Niki. She and her kids were the stars of my book. She just exudes personality. Thanks for your comment.

    Just as I was falling asleep last night a thought popped into my head, "Let's make it easier for Josh to I.D. those who haven't received their calendars by giving him real names and addresses."

    So, to Aunt Caffey, Pepsieandjac, 4jean, razan, hblocal, if you will please send me a PM with your username, real name and address (the name and address you used to order the calendars), I'll continue my email bomb of Josh's email account using real names and addresses.

    Your tortoise is October, I believe.
    It is quite unforgivable what had happened here.
    Hope you get your calendar soon, and everybody else who hasn't received theirs.

    YIPPEE! I've finally heard from Josh. Hopefully he's going to get on this problem this week-end. So you should be hearing from him soon.

    Soon, a free 2017 calendar would seem more appropriate.

    Unfortunately this has left such a sour taste in my mouth. I realize everyone volunteers their time, but the non-response is just wrong and has taken all the joy and fun out of this. It's only a calendar with my tortoise's picture in it, so it's really not a big deal, but still unsettling.

    No, I know exactly how you feel. My sister had a bad experience with the calendar a couple years ago, and, believe me, I heard about it...and heard, and heard!!! There's no excuse for it. Hopefully next year we can do it differently and give the responsibility to someone who doesn't have so much on their plate as Josh does.

    I'm awfully sorry this has happened. I know you're going to be so happy to get your calendars, but there's really no excuse for them arriving so darned late.

    That's great news!

    I've been taking lots of pictures of my little shelled buddy. Hopefully, the little thing will win a place on the calendar for next year.

    I have made calendars before as part of my photography business and I may possibly be interested in helping out come fall. I could automate the whole process through either my photography website or my Etsy page so that you pay, enter your info, I print a mailing label, slap it on a calendar and out the door it goes.
