    Yes, it’s him and yes, I’m confident he’s a troll. I was just waiting on a third post before reporting him. :)

    As for me, I play a game I call “Low Confidence.”

    I go out every day hoping this is *the* day; the day my tortoise is happy to see me, runs up for a scratch and then licks my hand before snuggling up for a nap. She brings me a red flower and leaves it as a gift.

    But no, every day is the same: she rushes me for food, then walks away and acts like I’m not there.

    Hind & seek, they probably laugh and laugh!
    Or not... My Booyah is the living definition of curmudgeon.
    I believe if she could talk she would yell at me to get out of her yard.

    We play hide and seek. It’s adorable that he thinks I can’t see him. He’s such a toddler.

    I think it is fun to take them out on my patio when it is lightly raining and the temp is 75 or 80. They have a ball, and it is the ONLY time I have ever seen them dip their head and drink. Being like 7x15 and closed off with bricks it is just a big playground for them. I keep a close eye on them still and come in if a steady rain comes though.
