Turtle Tricks

Eight years ago, I received an email from an old schoolmate and neighbor wanting to know something about publishing a book she was writing about her pet turtles. It seems that this voice from the past, that of Rose Lombard (formerly Rosemary Douglas) had over a period of three decades been teaching her charges many humanoid tricks--how to draw pictures, understand stories, and perform other odd time-killers.

This blog is about the humanoid feats of what Rose likes to call the members of her Chelonian Connection.
