WHERE IS HE?



 



Lost.
Eastern painted turtle.
Answers to the name Toby.
Big storm last night. His pond flooded. Poor Toby must have been washed out of it.
Heartsore.
How do I tell the boys?
I searched the back garden hoping to spot him but it's like Where's Waldo? only in hues of green and brown.
Hopeless. Futile.
Maybe he'll come back to his pond and his friend the goldfish who gobbles most of his shrimp flakes and green pellets. Maybe he'll come back to the lady who talks to him while she tears iceberg lettuce into turtle-size chunks, laughing at his "Feed me! Feed me!" antics.
Hopeful.

I sure hope so. I keep checking for him but no sign yet. He's probably off having a grand adventure.

Thank you. My boys keep going outside searching for him. There are a lot of long faces around here. I'm hopeful that he'll come home, though.

Oh no! :( What if you leave bits of lettuce around the yard? I hope he comes back. :( :( :(

Still no sign of Toby. I keep going out to the pond to put lettuce in there and to talk to the goldfish. I'm sure he'll turn up - how could he not, we built the 2-tiered pond just for him.
