    You're throwing him a 3-month-old birthday party, right?

    AHEM: @Pastel Tortie - I need to have a WORD with you about YOUR turtles encouraging MY BABY to try dangerous feats of turtle daring!!!
    Please note the example below:


    Nelson (to himself): "PINSTRIPE says I can do it..."

    Nelson: "Pinstripe says i can DO it....(grunt)..."

    IMG_2548.JPG


    Nelson: "Almost...(grunt)..there..."

    IMG_2549.JPG



    Nelson: "I DID IT!!!!! PINSTRIPE WAS RIGHT!!!"

    IMG_2551.JPG



    Nelson: "Now, to fuel up for my NEXT challenge..."

    @Moozillion I had a discussion with Pinstripe regarding your concerns about Nelson's climbing, and Pinstripe pointed out that Nelson is practicing climbing the safest way possible: Underwater. I think Pinstripe was trying to convey that being surrounded by water serves as a big, wrap-around safety cushion.

    Kudos to Nelson for listening to Pinstripe. If Nelson had to pick between listening to Bold or listening to Pinstripe, he definitely picked the right turtle. Imagine how much trouble Nelson would get into if he listened to Bold! :eek:

    You know, now that you mention it, you’re absolutely RIGHT!
    Pinstripe is DEFFINITELY a better influence than Bold!

    The thread @Moozillion created for Jacques was what inspired me to make a thread for Bold and Pinstripe. :D I still have much to learn...and to aspire to!

    I have been around a while and seen a load of really cute animals. But Nelson...he absolutely takes the cake. Sorry, Jacques. I don't even quite remember what you look like......o_O
