Thank you friend! I try to keep my beak squeaky clean and sparkly.

When the show is done at 5, so am I. Goodnight!

I woke up way too early to help mom set up for the art show. If you live in Ottawa and are in the Glebe, come say hi to me and feed me dandies

The travel bin is a bit small now for my daily roaming needs so mom picked this contraption for us. We don’t have our usual dirt and bark in it but mom says that’s because it’s meant to be moved around. Last night we were in the bedroom and now we are on the deck. Tomorrow we will have this set up at the show. I guess it will do.

Today I was a gentletort. I sat in my travel bin all well behaved for the trip to Ottawa. Then I helped a pretty painted turtle cross the road. Did you know that people at art shows ask mom all the time of she painted mine and Mango’s shells? We tell them no, only losers paint tortie and turtle shells.

Hey Waffles, just to say - seeing you delightfully tuck in to lovely bunch of dandelions reminds me that life is actually quite simple and beautiful. Your an inspiration, Waffles. Love, Kelsey

Hi Kelsey! Dandies are wonderful and so tasty. We could buy tort food all year round but why would we when the best things in life are free?

Hi Waffles! I love your blog, and Mango's too. It's easy to tell how much your mom cares about you guys and what a good job she's doing. And it's especially neat to see photos that show how big you are growing! I remember your post about how some sulcatas weigh over 100lbs... I know you aren't that big yet, but I was wondering how much you do weigh these days? (Hopefully that's not rude to ask about -sorry Waffles!)

Hi Muffin friend! I am actually quite proud of my growth and have made mom keep track of it for the past year. Here is my growth record just for you!

Hi Waffles! Um.. this is just an anonymous tortoise here wondering how hard it was to get the keys to your humom's car? Humom & I just got back from a long trip. she's been jetlagged & will sleep late. I figure I could just borrow that car without her knowing, go find some tasty noms, and mail out these postcards I have for some of my favorite shell friends (ahem.. you might know em...) Any advice would be helpful! Long live the #Turtlpocalypse ~Not Zoya of Tort-time. A totally different shell.

Hi Zoya! Err, I mean anonymous tortoise. Humom’s are always leaving things around the house because they are lazy and forgetful. When mom leaves her keys laying about, just hide them under your stuffie and wait until she goes to bed. The good thing is that you don’t even have to put the keys away. Just leave them somewhere and humom will blame herself for being forgetful and leaving them around. Oh, I highly recommend trying something called the “drive thru”. You open the car window and people just give you food! Amazing!

Hi there Beans, that’s a comfy looking bed you have there. Did you hear that? There’s someone at the door! (Climb, climb, snuggle, snuggle) Sucker!
