From the archives

It is that time of year again. The roses are in bloom, the days are hot and the nights just right, there are kids running rogue, and there are strange sounds that have you on a non stop search for the source. When you do find the source, you quickly shut your eyes, and thrust your head in the opposite direction only to find that you....must.....turn.....head.....just to make sure......yep, it's exactly what you thought it was.

Next Door Tortoise Romance

Shelly on a break

Break time
So my neighbors have these 2 tortoise's, Myrtle & Shelly. They just roam their yard and eat grass and watermellon rines. Well, you will often see them, or if your lucky hear them "mating". Appearantly it is mating season for tortoises. And I gotta tell ya, it's a little weird. I mean who has large turtles that roam their yard and play hanky panky all day? It's wierd, right? I mean maybe have one turtle roaming the premises, or two of the same sex. It gets a little awkward. The funny thing is, they don't even look real. They look fake. At first I thought it was like a joke the neighbors were playing. But No, they are real. Their yard has a chain liked fence that surrounds it, so anyone walking by or driving by can veiw the show for free. But who is going to actually stop and watch two turtles do their thang? Well, I have to say that I have gotten some good laughs from the whole turtle situation.

The other day, I just happened to look out the kitchen window and there was this girl walking by. She kept suspiciously looking around, so I quickly shut the blinds and peeked through watching her to see what she was doing. Well, she walked by, but then she quickly b-lined it for the neighbors fence, pulled out her cell phone and snapped a shot of Myrtle and Shelly in action. HA! It was so funny. And then she casually walked off like nothing happened. Little did she know I saw the whole thing.

Then yesterday there was this blue minivan that drove by and by and by and by and by. He would go up the street turn around and come back driving by really slowly by the turtles. It got to the point where his car started to veer was he was driving up the wrong side of the road next to the fence and didn't know it until he looked up and there was a truck that was waiting to proceed in his rightful lane. He must have been trying to get a peek at the action, either that, or he was really interested in the neighbor's nice green lawn.

So it's that time of season again.....If you're visiting and you hear weird noises, just look away....just look away.

Ha, too funny! What a welcoming committee! Well at least you will have props when you talk to your boys about the birds and the bees.

Good times, good times. Thanks for sharing again ;) Do your boys ask what they are doing? What do you say? It makes me laugh that people actually will drive by to gawk at them, nothing better to do I guess.
