A traumatic day indeed. We can’t really take our six turtles with us to Chicago tomorrow, so they’ve had to go and take up residence in the pet shop we bought them from. Temporarily, of course. We shall be returning to collect them on Jan the 5th, to bring them back home. We have left the pet shop lady their dietry requirements – Bob: anything meaty, dead or alive, in large quantities. Angus: carrots. Baby, Homer and Mr Patel – tortuguetas. Angel: Dried shrimps. With a tuna fish feast for all on Xmas Day.
