First, a Friday Funny – It’s short, cute and well uh explosive:
I just love the little grin at the end!
We’ve already established that I’m nocturnal, but it seems that my turtle, who should be sleeping through the night, has decided to have a party every night!
It’s not like the living room lights are on and keeping him up. He’s in the dark and he should be sleeping. But he’s not. The last two nights, or should I say early mornings, he’s become very active at about 4 a.m. Maybe he’s training for the Olympics? Planning the great escape?
He comes out of his shelter, then he attempts to climb on top of his home. He usually doesn’t get to the top on the first try. Nope, he noisily attempts to climb it several times, falling backwards most of the time, and occasionally falling into his shallow water dish. When he finally reaches the top he decides he wants off the shelter. So what does he do? He jumps off of it into his water dish.
Then the whole cycle begins again.
Box turtles have hard shells and when he’s banging around you can hear him through the whole house!
Shhhhhhhhh Spaz, you’ll wake Chris up. I’m surprised his girlfriend Myrtle never seems to wake up when he gets busy.
