He would still have to go to the main yard to catch a bus, but his car is there any how. They always have the teachers take them home (and usually actually to their home or close by) and when a driver quits they try to get them a ride on another truck also. It's called Prime is cheap and doesn't want to pay the bus, but it makes sense too.

I think you know how this trucking business run much better then I do. :)

Doesn't anybody still get donuts at DD? :)
Dunkin's donuts actually are bad in comparison to our local shops... especially filled ones like my boston crème it has like no filling compared to our local shop.

Hmm I actually never would have guessed Dunkins went international if they hardly even leave the north east here, literally we have 2 in our tiny town and in cities they're EVERYWHERE you could throw a donut from one to another if you wanted with some!
And sorry lol trust no one with Nank, even my cousin who's his sitter who has her own Russian haha he's my baby!!:tort::<3:

I had never liked them the time or two we tried them. Our Casey's (with the good ice tea) has some of the best donuts. I really love the cake donuts there.

Oh man, I'm SO tired. I was ok when I got up earlier but 4 hrs later I'm dragging badly. :(
It's hard to keep up with a busy 3 yr old when I'm like this.

Arabic Coffee:
Ingredients:
1 1/2 liters of water
4 to 4 1/2 tablespoons of coffee
1 teaspoon of ground cardamom
A pinch of saffron
Preparation:
1-Add coffee to hot water and leave it to brew for 5 minutes or until it starts boiling
2- Add cardamom and saffron to the kettle you'll serve the coffee in.
3- pour coffee into the kettle the coffee will be served in.
Edit: In the past, coffee was brewed 3 times a day: before dawn, in the afternoon, and at sunset, thus anticipating the arrival of guests any time. Maybe give arabic coffee a try, I love it...

Any advice for moving a tortoise and 5 box turtles, and minimizing stress? We are only moving about a mile away, so I'm not worried about the car ride or anything.

Littlefoots enclosure is a 75 gallon tank + stand, and is ridiculously heavy. We'll need to completely take it down. That's ok, because its time to replace his coir and moss anyways. So, items like hides and dishes will go in a box, other stuff gets removed and chucked, tank gets moved, set back up, Littlefoot goes in.

Box turtles live in a 55 gallon Rubbermaid. I'm thinking taking them out, and just moving the box and it's contents would work?
