    I have about 25 minutes before I have to leave to go pick up a surrendered desert tortoise. In that time, is there anyone out there in computer-land who wants to pretend we have a chat room and join me here in this thread and talk about nothing?

    Shucks miss this in time, but going keep it going. Perhaps if this thread is popular, it will show Josh we want a chatbox. :D

    So what are you all up to today? When I am not inside trying to dry off the sweat and being online/doing inside chores, I am working on the jungle that grew in the month I was gone. Why is it the weeds no tortoise wants, grows so well and fast for me??? Geesh can't even find the tortoises for those darn weeds. :D

    We found our first desert tortoise way back in the '60's. At that time I didn't realize there were different types of tortoise. We figured they all looked the same all over the world. One of them that we found in our neighborhood was high yellow, but we still figured it was a desert tortoise. Now, years later with more knowledge, I'm thinking it was a Chaco.[hr]

    My neighbor from across the street comes over every other week and mows and operates the weed-eater, so I don't have to worry about hat anymore, thank goodness

    My son was suppose to do that while I was gone. I think the heat, the rain, and then the amount of time he spent going doing weights limited that...plus we have three large yards to keep up on.

    That is neat. My husband promise my 4 year old a turtle 2 1/2 years ago. I think he want a red ear slider. I did not want to mess with water. So, we went with the sulcata. I have fell in love with him. I love to see him in the back yard.

    I know I'm pretty opinionated, and I really try to keep it toned down here on the forum, but my strong belief is that ALL turtles and tortoises belong outside!!

    What kind of bird is Sin-Bad?

    I keep Franklin inside till he was old enough to see from a distance. I was afraid of losing him.

    Did you expect to have the emotions you have for a tortoise before you got him?

    But to tell you the truth I did not realize how to take care of him until I found this forum. Thank goodness I came across it. [hr]

    I have my babies outside as soon as the weather permits. They're in those large Christmas Tree storage bins, with wire covers, and they're up off the ground. But my little leopard babies have a wooden framework set down inside the leopard pen so they can graze. Theirs has a top I can prop open or closed.[hr]
    I feel this same way. Every day I'm grateful that Josh started the forum and that I found it.

    Each day brings something new to learn. Like whoever thought of hernias in tortoises?

    I have a tub of baby box turtles (3), a tub of texas babies (5), a new little Manouria called little Phaeri, Emmie, who is almost big enough to graduate out of a tub and the 2 leopard babies[hr]
    I'm still not quite sure I believe that one. They usually prolapse before they would herniate.[hr]
    Well, time for me to go pick up that tortoise. I'll see you all later in the day!

    But now every one in the house knows that Franklin belongs to me. He is the cats meow.[hr]
    My brother law just call he has 4' of water in house. He lives in North Carolina on the water. I would have thought that he would have left his house. It does this ever time.

    That will be no fun to clean up. I think I would be one of those who stays with my house.

    Me to just for the thrill and to protect what mind. That is kind of sick isn't it.[hr]
    That was fun. Now I am off to the store to buy a chain saw. To cut up the tree that fell durning the storm. This time I will buy the best one just to make sure it last.

    I wouldn't be staying for the thrill. I would be staying because of all the things there to try to keep safe. Plus where would my animals and I go would be a big thought for me. Then remember like with Katrina, those who left could not get back in for far longer then they ever imagined.

    Not so much fun cutting up trees. Bye! :tort:
