Turtle Tchotchke Tuesday

Some hooks from Poss (thanks, Poss!).
I still need to figure out a place to put them.

Turtle Tchotchke Tuesday

A turtle within a turtle from India.
You can see the inside turtle's eye peeking out but you can't really see that it is attached to another turtle.

So, I thought and animated view of the turtles might let you see inside (much like seeing the other side of a picket fence as you're driving past it). But it doesn't help. But here it is anyway!

Turtle Tchotchke Tuesday

A blanket brought by Poss and the girls on an earlier visit.
Jerry got it out for Poss and Mei last week. I had forgotten about it.

Turtle Tchotchke Tuesday

A steel turtle we got at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park gift shop.

Today is the sixth anniversary of the first Turtle Tchotchke Tuesday. That means I've shown more than 313 turtles over the years. It's getting tougher to find turtles that haven't been shown before. They're there but it's taking more work to make sure that I've found one that's not been seen. I guess I could make sure to go out and get new turtles each week but that's a lot of work, too. We'll see if I can keep this up for another year. It'll be tough.
