Outta commission

I have been out of commission for a couple of weeks, but not because I am ill or anything. I've just been busy with this and that, including a gloriously epic visit from T's daughter R (aka my fairy stepdaughter) and her son, A, (aka our oldest grandson). I have not been keeping up with blog world. I'm trying to catch up with your blogs today. 

Will be back in the saddle soon.  


Cheers!

Here's a picture of a bale of turtles, for no apparent reason. Did anyone else know that a group of turtles was called a "bale?" I just googled and found this out. This concludes the educational part of my day.

  1. Welcome back! Good to know your time away was with family visitors.

    Something new for me, too. A bale of turtles. Although turtles are not native here, someone put at least one red slider in a local lake a few years ago. I was astounded the first time I saw that red slider! There is now a bale of turtles at Lake Padden, seen by many, but I'm still hoping to see them!
