Michael Ray's last outdoor photo for the year

And he was even less willing to have his picture taken today than he was last time. 

It's six months of boredom until he can spend his days outdoors again. Unfortunately for me, he will have six months to dream of the peonies and come up with a plan to take them down in even less time. It's what he does. :-/

He is on a mission....I have a question. Are they house broken? Or do they go in a certain place?

Train a turtle to do something???? Ha ha ha.

No, they aren't housebroken but being desert animals, they don't "go" a lot. This transition time of year, I take my chances with them indoors. We have the occasional accident but luckily it doesn't happen too often. They're just temporarily upstairs in the house this week so I can easily put them outside when it gets warm enough. In the next day or so, they're probably going to be permanently moved to their basement stock tanks to spend the winter. Not too interesting for them but they do slow down in the winter months and don't get into too much mischief..... until spring. And then watch out, they jump out of their tanks and start moving paint cans and stuff. Errrgh. And then it's time to go outside and find that row of peony bushes that bugs them so much. ;-)

Besides, watching them walk around in the house is pretty good entertainment for me. It's worth the risk of a possible accident. :-)
