We had a baby! It's a turtle!


Honey found this little bitty turtle while he was in the garden (our backyard is on a canal). We feed the turtles all of our old bread, we just go out and toss it into the canal and they eat it right up. Somehow this little guy made it up the bank through some tall grass and into our yard. He was just walking along our patio when Honey spotted him and brought him into me while I was making a salad. And of course, I wanted to keep him. Honey went out to the garage and got another fish tank that we aren't using and we made him a home. Doesn't he look happy?


What should I name my turtle?

cute!!!

how about Pokey? Turtle? Snappy? Bob?

Roomba? LOL

Andie-

My cat got her name because I specifically REFUSED to name her paws, socks, mittens, etc. Soo...

She was named "My Dog Fred", thereafter known as Fred and BabyFred.

Bob will be an acceptable option but only if it's a girl turtle.

Meno- You are too kind.

You see, all the previous cleaning was because you were nesting! Now the baby has arrived you can stop cleaning, stay in your pajamas all day and have toast for dinner. And all turtles should be named Yertle. If it's a girl, then Myrtle.

I love Yertle the Turtle as a name!

I was going suggest Telly the Turtle or Francis the Frog (in line with 'My Dog Fred'). :)

Andrea said...

Oh, and you can call it Frankie if it's a girl or Francis if it's a boy! LOL!

I amuse myself entirely too easily...

TTQ said...

Yertle Yertle, Turtle Turtle is what I have been calling him. What movie is that from?? I think it was Jim Carrey movie...

Andrea, I amuse myself entirely too much too, in fact I usually take a few other people with me..I love when I'm sitting here amusing my self and I can see my husbands shoulder's shaking as he trys not to laugh at me or maybe with me..

He justs says: TTQ, You are Mess! In a good way.

I like Yertle the Turtle. Dr. Suess is cool. The only other turtle I know of is Franklin. He is a boring cartoon for kids on Noggin.

ttq -- I think you are like my friend Peggy who calls me up with the dumbest stuff and she's laughing so hard while trying to tell her "funny" story, everyone is in tears of laughter by the end of the phone call.

Yeah, that's right, I said it -- you know it's true.

There's a cornball in each and every one of us, and thank God, your's blogs :o).
