Turtles don't really get lonely- they seem to tolerate each other's existence at best. Though they are stackable, piling up on each other to get the best basking spots. Goggle is good at clearing up my grumpy moods though, often brought upon by this place.

Those animals are cute! They will also all be dead about the time Goggle is reaching adolescence.

Twice in the last week, I have noticed black squirrels. I think that they are black unless they are just extremely darkest brown.

Where did they come from? I have never noticed these kind of squirrels before. They are actually beautiful ~~ I suppose being that they are seemingly so rare. But I do not know for sure. Perhaps they are not rare at all.

Maybe there is still a chance that someday i will encounter a white crow or a crimson one.
Can you imagine THAT?!

They've probably just been covered in oil, or in soot from a coal plant.

I do not think so. I do not live around areas where that might happen.

They really were so pretty though because they were so rare - at least to me.

Now that student is a person of compassion. Who would want to disturb such a beauty?

I wonder just how long one could sit and stare at him before feeling a need to move on.

Seeing images like that I think do wonders for the brain ~~ kind of akin to the effect that Alvin and the Chipmunks sounds have on me.
