All four flock members took a vote and I was officially voted “4th cutest,” which means my place is pretty much permanently behind the camera.
So you won’t see me very often in photos here (well, unless you count the occasional glimpse of a foot, a lap, a hand, that sort of thing).
Here’s a bit of a timeline so you can get your bearings.
Pearl, a cockatiel and our fetching and feathery “alpha” flock member, came first on January 26, 2000.
Malti, our sweet bottomless pit of a South American red-foot tortoise, arrived on May 16, 2014.
Bruce, our very brave rescued 3-toed Texas box turtle, followed on May 16, 2016 – literally two years to the day after Malti arrived.
As of today, my cup runneth over. <3
In addition to being a full-time mama to the feathers and the shells, my very most important job, I’m also a freelance writer, author, and free spirit….the kind who has her own invisible shell and aspires to grow wings.
