ABC WEDNESDAY "D" is for "determination"

You have to really admire tortoises, terrapins, and turtles. They for sure don't move so fast, even when they might be in a hurry like this chap, and finding a mate must be along process.  Determination was the word of the day for this tortoise at the Belgrade Zoo.

Poor fellow was too much in a hurry....got the wrong side.  Note, though, the worn spot on her shell....

See other Ds on Mrs. Nesbitt's ABC WEDNESDAY.

So funny. Love that worn spot on the tail. This poor fellow gives new meaning to the phrase "Blinded by love." Or maybe it's "Blinded by lust." :)

D might also be for "desperate" in this poor fellow's case. She must be a popular girl!

When I was a kid I had a desert tortoise as a pet. Her (I'm not sure we really knew) name was Pansy because as she would walk from the back yard to the side yards to enjoy some grass, she would stop and nibble on the pansies along the garden's border. - Margy
