    If it’s cheaper it’s better, if more expensive it’s worse. :)

    Because of "helpers", lack of free range of motion room, or ?

    Plus what happened to the floor?

    The floor rotted out . He has a lot of room to run almost a 1/4 acre. But when he sees you he has to check you out . I'm fixing the floor then giving him the shed . His little house is getting too small .

    They are more curious and inquisitive, then most folks give them credit for. Plus humans are the gods of food.

    Got my floor all framed in after work and leveled the front of the building.Thats enough work for today. I'll level the back tomorrow . Then put the plywood down .I can see the light at the end of this tunnel. The funny thing is back in 2005 I built this shed.My uncle gave me a crap load of free lumber . So I told the wife I was building a free shed. Well I got it all framed up for free . But I had to have nice siding . So the was 500 bucks . Then we had to paint it . That was 100 bucks . Then we had to wire it . That was 500 bucks. Because I'm a electrician and have to have it all fancy. Now I just spent 600 on a new floor. So the wife comes out and reminds me of our free shed. Lol

    I fed and watered and cleaned up after the tortoises, then I dug up a leopard nest I saw happening last night (15 eggs), then I raked up a bushel basket of leaves and dumped them on one of the box turtles' areas of hibernation. Then I came in the house and set the eggs up in the incubator. I now have three FULL incubators. Any more eggs and I'll have to find another incubator. I won't be doing anything outside the rest of the day. After lunch (mine and Misty's) I'll read for a while and that usually makes me sleepy, so I'll sleep for a while. When I wake up I'll work a couple jig saw puzzles on my Kindle.

    I don't have any big plans for tomorrow, just more of the same. Pretty exciting stuff, huh? How about you?
