    That sounds like so much fun. And doing things for good causes mkes me feel warm and tingly inside. Sadly I can’t make this. But I hope the public straps on their leg warmers and the turn out is huge.

    ps I read that today in Milwaukee was the annual sausage run. :D It made me smile seeing people in giant sausage suits running.

    hey girl!
    will let you know how it turns out! Check out the video piece we did.
    The tortoise is my bud sam – an 80+ yellow footed tortoise from South America.
    The ridiculously cute bunny is named Astrid – a rejected pet.

    thanks!

    Kathleen, we should set up a play date so your buddy Sam could play with my turtle! :D What the hell, bring Astrid too! We’ll be an unlikely trio of superheroes!

    Oh! Have you ever seen the footage of the baby hippo who befriended the tortoise? So adorable. Talk about odd couples.

    He’s a red eared slider. The poor thing, I acquired the little guy from a friend who’s cat was very mean to him. He was really scared at first and didn’t like it when I had to apply antibiotics to his scratches but now I think he is happy and feels safe. And he absolutely loves to go outside during the summer and explore in the grass. :D

    Turtle Power! :mrgreen:
