Sad News

Message from Mommy :

I'm going to take a few days off blogging and commenting to mourn the sudden death of my tortoise, Bronto.  She passed away today, 10 February 2012 from extensive injuries sustained in an accident involving a car.  She has been with me since 1998.  Her friend, Dino, was with us as we buried her in our garden.

I know she is crawling around happily at the beautiful gardens at the Rainbow Bridge and probably looking around for human toes to nibble on. Until we meet again, Bronto, enjoy the neverending supply of grass at the Rainbow Bridge!  Mommy loves you.

Good bye, Bronto
