We are two crumblies (love that word!) who like to wander anywhere that sounds even slightly interesting. Our blog covers the things we like to do, such as traveling, geocaching and anything to do with our family. I don’t post anything to garner lots of hits or for any recognition of any kind; I’m doing this for me and if someone finds it and likes it, well, that’s a bonus. I figure one of these days this blog will be my memory bank when my own memory starts to slip. Oh, wait! I’m already there! 🙂
At the moment we have one son, one daughter-in-law, one grandcat, several cats, one dog and one Red-Eared Slider turtle.
All but three cats found their way to our house – sometimes through friends, sometimes on their own – and stayed. The other three we picked out ourselves.
The dog, Ziggy, showed up at my work one day and no one else would take him home, so I volunteered to take care of him until we found his owner. That was back in August of 2005. He’s still here. We are his family.
The turtle, Seymour, just appeared in our back yard in August of 2006, her shell painted with a picture that looked like the work of a child. We’re sure someone threw her over our fence since there are no openings in the fence that she could have gotten through. We got a crash course in how to take care of an aquatic turtle and within a couple of weeks she had a nice pond to live in, complete with rocks for sunning herself and goldfish to keep her company… until she ate most of them. Ten of them survived and they’re now her entourage.
That’s about it. Nothing exciting, just doing what we like to do.
