    I went out to my mailbox yesterday and thought I saw a big slab of mud in my yard. but at a closer look I saw it was a big snapping turtle. I said, "Hi turtle" to him and he turned his head towards me and sighed, "eeehhhh" in a disinterested unimpressed way, like he was a celebrity and I was asking for an autograph. I went into the house and he turned and went back into the ditch.

    That's pretty cool.
    There used to be a big tortoise that lived in one of the parks near us, but we haven't seen it in years, so we don't know if it's still alive.

    Rosie doesn't seem to understand that Karl is almost 10x her size

    That is SO cool to be able to do that. I wish I had that ability! Some Karen starts fussing at me, I take 2 steps back and disappear into the background. I see someone I want to avoid...2 steps back and I fade into the scenery! Best superpower EVER!

    Is there such a thing as a bird feeder that keeps the mess below at a minimum and is also squirrel-proof? Seems like it's one or the other. Looking to get a new feeder.
