    Our turtle came to us at least second-hand, maybe even worse than that. He'd been in the custody of my teacher husband's paraprofessional, and she didn't want to be bothered anymore. She brought him to school to be the class mascot, and after a few years she refused to bring him back home for holidays, so we started hosting him. Then she left the school, and the LH left the classroom, so Mr. Daisy came to live with us full-time.

    So we couldn't return him to the wild, because we really had no idea where she'd gotten him from.

    "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself."........ "The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little." (yeah, same guy.)
