The Best Week Ever!!!

Let me tell you about the BEST WEEK EVER!  It started Saturday, December 20, 2014, which happened to be my birthday. That also happened to be the day that our Russian Tortoise, Neil the Tortoise, appeared on the front page of the Wall Street Journal. Let me repeat that, the WALL STREET JOURNAL!  

I know I posted about this before, but it is the biggest thing to ever happen to me, and to Neil, so it must be mentioned again. Maybe again-again in the future, just a head's up. In case you were wondering, here are two of the three receipts where I purchased all those copies of the papers! 

Well, since last Saturday, Neil appeared on Fox 40 News in Sacramento with Paul Robins. I was terrified, but Paul was wonderful and made Neil look great! 

We then appeared on Good Day Sacramento yesterday morning with Cody Stark. We had so much fun. Since I was now an "old pro" at this tv thing (ok, not, but I like to think so!) I quit being as nervous and just had fun. 

Neil now has his own Facebook page at:

AND his own Twitter at:

He is a bit of a diva since all this has happened. Not sure his head will fit through the door with that big ego. But, it is fun while it is lasting. 

He is modeling for an upcoming calendar, so stay tuned for that. :)

This has been the BEST WEEK EVER! :)
