Outdoor Life

It's beautiful outside

why don’t you ever go outside, Driftwood?

From all of my posts and photos showing me indoors, you might think that is my life. That is misleading. Everyday I take MelT on a tour of our yard for at least an hour or two. Mostly she stands around looking bored, which I don’t understand. I can always find things to do. Continue reading “Outdoor Life” »

Biting Leopolda


My after pool run

I have a little ritual that I follow every afternoon after I get out of the pool. Actually, I have rituals for every time of day, but in this blog post I’m only going to talk about my after pool ritual. Anyway, it starts out with a run, as you can see in the photo above. My run isn’t very long. Sometimes I go all the way to the house, but sometimes I stop as soon as I see something good to eat. Continue reading “Biting Leopolda” »

Party time!

I even asked Leopolda and Cassio to write something up. But if tortoises are slow before they’ve been partying, they are glacial afterward.

I’m afraid you are just going to have to wait until tomorrow night (my real birthday) to hear about the festivities in detail. In the meantime, you have just these two photos to whet your imaginations!

We’ve been having some beautiful weather here lately so I have been spending a lot of time outside. As you can see from the photo above, I am not the only one who appreciates a little sunshine. That is my co-pet, Leopolda, aka Leah. She is an African leopard tortoise and she has been living with Melly for about 33 years, which is a long, long, long time. Continue reading “Spring Picnic” »

Me and Leopolda

 

Me and Leopolda sharing the lawn

Probably most you know that I have a tortoise co-pet named Leopolda (Leah for short). Melly tells me Caplin clicked at her, bit at her shell and tried to chase her around the yard, except that she didn’t care. I guess I’m just more easy going than Caplin was because I don’t feel any need to chase Leah. There’s grass enough for everybody, that’s my motto.
