You'd think being unemployed and all would afford ample time to blog.

The only big news is the new addition to our family.

Not that kind of addition, as is clearly illustrated by the lack of blood and tears in this post.

PD went to a gun show today with her father and grandfather and came home with a small, soft shelled turtle named Snake.

When the hell people started hawking turtles at gun shows, I can't tell you. While the turtle is cute, he'll likely outlive me and evidently carries a risk of Salmonella. I have washed my child's hands five times in the last two hours.

Feast your eyes on Snake, the disease riddled flavor of the month.


  1. What's with the floating turd in his tank? Miss you!

  2. The boys got the same kinda diseased little fella at the hometown festival last 4th of July. I just keep a bottle of hand sanitizer next to the tank and hope for the best. Ours is named Nipper but Hudson refers to him as "Nip"...Nice, eh? :)
