George Emerges

During the winter we don't see much of George, our resident gopher tortoise. This year it's been so cold he hasn't made any appearances at all, and he's a bit of a senior citizen (from what we've calculated, at least in his thirties) that we were a little worried he might have gone on to turtle heaven.

Not so, I found out yesterday, when he and I crossed paths in the yard:

Can you tell how thrilled he was to see me?

YAY! George lives to see another year. And he was very excited to see you. See how he's dancing on his way to greener pickings? ;)

The sad truth is that George ran from me that day, Theo, like he always does when he sees me. Although he might have winked at me very fast before he took off. :)
