M.I.A...call 911...well..maybe not that drastic



Ok...well some of you have seen photos of the tortise I have..Frankie is his name...When it is hot outside I put him in my front yard..He loves the heat..Loves to eat the grass and mow on dandelions..I have a fenced in front yard..So I don't worry too much...Well...I am sad to report he has been MIA since about Friday morning...Friday afternoon I had noticed one of the gates in my front yard had been left opened...Which happens..But he never goes far..I mean..He is slow...!!!...Friday night I went out to take a looksy..He has a bush he tends to hide under..And he was not there..Nor was he under any of them..I know..I know...I should of kept better track of him...Well He wasn't even mine really..A few years ago my mom had bought him...And for some reason..That Slips my mind..I ended up with him...I have had custody of him for about a year now...Well I mean I had custody of him...He has flown the coop..Or walked slowly from the coop..I have put out and All Points Bulletin for him..I mean how do you go door to door asking if they have seen a tortoise?.Its not like looking for a lost dog or kitty...I am hoping he has just dug himself into a hole in the yard that I cant see...I hate to think of him out there wandering the neighborhood...Rummaging through trash cans..Chasing alley cats...Well I know e couldn't do any of that...But still He is gone...And I swear I will hurt one of the children if they brought him in without telling me..I have asked them both..And neither of them has seen him...But kids tend to only recall certain items..They suffer from short term memory loss...Unless you have promised then something..They never forget that...Well I keep you updated on the wheabouts of my fellow reptilian friend...Toodles

Hey. Was just looking around when I saw your blog. You have a cool blog, with pictures and all, but I think you should separate your paragraphs into smaller ones. Makes it easier to read, yar? Just a suggestion though.

Did Frankie come home? what happened? Reminds me of the time, I helped a young tortoise cross the road to a marshy place near my home.(well, I didnt want to get him to human settlement). I remember seeing a programme on Discovery channel last year about how a tortoise was lost when a storm struck and the owners forgot abt him when they ran away. He was found tens of kms away an year later !!! Wish you are lucky too !!
