you got hate mail? what about? i mean, it's not like you're really controversial in your postings. unless it was about your choice of hair colour example.

Carolyn said...

Sure missed you! It is so hard going from full time Mom to...whatever we move on to. Sorry the tortoise didn't work out :-( I haven't posted in ages either. Life sure does have a way of getting too darn busy. Looking forward to hearing from you more often. How is the business venture going?

Dana Clover said...

because of my awesome Iced Coffee Recipe! lol
silly huh?

Lacey said...

Glad to have you back. We've missed you!!!

Dana those people need to get over themselves. I'm an ex-barista and we used to make all our cold drinks with Toddy. Pioneer Woman is very nice but certainly is not the first one to come up with the idea. I guess I should be posting this on THAT thread, eh?

I can sympathize! I picked up a tortoise out of the road off a busy rural highway and brought it home. Unfortunately, when we got to looking at it and figured out what it was, it turned out to be a gopher tortoise. Same situation --- endangered and you're not even supposed to TOUCH them. I have nice Fish and Wildlife folk, though. Relocated it to a place that wasn't my house in the wild where it belongs. Now looking into getting captive bred tortoises instead. Do you like yours?
