That is a cool-looking turtle or is it a tortoise?  I don't even know the difference if there is one, haha.

Oh boy...with the heat we have been experiencing I would not want to be in that position....I prefer the shade when I'm in the sand.

Paul we had lunch with an older gentleman friend of ours and he shared his years of struggling through a bankruptcy etc.  And he also shared his positivity and intention to come to the other side and enjoy the ride as much as possible.  It was quite the remarkable story of which I had known a little bit about but not all of it by a long shot. He's living his best life now and is grateful.
