Turtle rescuers seen daily around here---- those critters are so often in the roads that well doers are always stopping their cars to move em into the grass. Maybe they are looking for water as all of the ponds are nearly empty around here.

I am down 5 lbs since I moved here (one month now)---I have been swimming laps nearly every day - (YMCA) - Thought I would have lost more than that by now though. Today listened to Maroon 5 while swimming.  Mailed a couple books of dads that I sold on half.com.

A few years ago I was in Hawaii (on the big island) with my friend Beth. We were staying at a hotel that was next to a giant turtle reserve, so a lot of time the turtles would end up swimming over the the hotel. There signs everywhere saying people had to stay I think 500 feet from the giant turtles at all times, and whenever one would swim ashore the pool guy would grab some yellow cones and put them around the turtle to keep people from getting too close. It was pretty cool seeing those huge turtles!

ha-ha those yellow cones sound funny! Many of the bigger turtles are protected now---like the desert tortoises. Many years ago a friend of mine and I went to a tortoise preserve in southern California and we never saw one!
