This whole mess brought with it aura's in my eyes, and a weakness in my neck. Oh hell just add another something to the "getting old is not for sissy's" column on my bucket list.
But I had a really good day yesterday. The best part was when I went to buy myself some lunch.....because I could drive a car again without lasers in my eyeballs (well you know it felt like that). And as I was coming up the street off of a very busy thoroughfare street.....I see this turtle crossing the road. I just knew that if someone came off that road going as fast as they do, they would never see her in time and I was gonna have to view something I wouldn't be able to stomach. So I raced across the intersection, slammed on my breaks, hit the hazard light button, leaped out of the car, scooped up the turtle and jumped back into my car just as this moron in a big truck took the corner on two wheels and raced past me at a very high rate of speed. She would have been a schmoosh in the road for certain. I put her in the foot well on the drivers side and drove home. I think she smiled at me.

We've named her Darlene the Daring....Lucky for short and I saw her out being wooed by Pig this morning near the windmill. I didn't even think about photos yesterday thus the borrowed one from the web. I was just seeing and enjoying watching a turtle who had not been made road kill and secure in the knowing the good thing I did was gonna bring both of us pleasure.....and from the look of her encounter with Mr. Pig.....more baby turtles. Gotta love those tortuga uhaul trailers......wink, wink.
So welcome to the family Darlene.
And for those who love me and wonder where I ran off to and hid away.....now ya know. Sorry dear ones, I'll be back in contact, sending out packages and being my old abnormal self before you know it. Good thing GK can type as well as she does or else you'd not have had any posts at OBNSS. Yeah for in house cheap labor, eh?
Smooches and squoozes, Oma Linda
