  6. Hi, Sandra!

    That's just wonderful! It always warms my heart to see stories about people helping animals in distress. The people on this team went out of their way to give that tortoise back its life. Now it will probably outlive us all!

    Happy Tuesday, dear friend Sandra!

    1. I love to see it too, Shady. And it may very well outlive us. I've always wondered what decides animal life expectancy. Parrots and tortoises live a long time, dogs and cats not so much.....

  7. The pain that poor tortoise went through. I'm glad she got the help and what help! This is great and just shows how much people can help. I like to believe that for every 1 person who is cruel, there are 5 who are not.
