Turtle Friends…..

So.....if you have been reading my blog you might have noticed that my posts lately have been rather sporadic....or just plain missing.   There is a major change in my life....a good one....but it’s meant that I’ve had a little....sometimes a lot....less time to get things done.  Important things to me that help keep my… Continue reading Turtle Friends…..
