I was sitting here barefoot enjoying my first real day of summer vacation (well, maybe not ENJOYING…I was actually doing paperwork, my worst thing ever!) when Carlos came to the house and said, “Get your boots on. I found a big tortuga at the pond.” So I yelled for the girls and the boots went on six feet in a flash. We followed Carlos down to the pond where sure enough, there was a big tortoise. I have not seen one in the 10 years that we have lived here on the ranch. Actually, I’ve never seen one except at the zoo! It was really cute. I have not tried to identify it yet but I would love to know, was it someone’s pet that wandered away? Does it have babies close by?
