I like helping animals when I can. I feel we owe it to them. My wife sometimes get aggravated at me when I go into what she calls "turtle patrol". If I see a turtle crossing the road I have to stop and help it across. After all, our road is in it's habitat.

I also cleaned the area around the nest with the hose once a week. However, when they abounded the nest, I took a power washer to it, and I repainted the area. Maybe that's why they didn't come back Eat-popcorn

You know in some parts of the world the swallows nest is delicacy?Thinking-about


I am really off topic now; Coffee


Oh, well. It won't hurt anything to be off topic on this post.

I have read about the swallows nest being a delicacy. It actually sounds interesting. I'm usually willing to try new things. Especially food! Laugh-a-lot

We have vinyl siding so the mess is pretty easy to clean up.

It we have had swallows nesting on our porch for so many years it makes me wonder if they are the descendants of the original pair or are the unrelated pairs that just say the potential of the nesting site. I prefer to think it is the descendants of the original pair.

A friend's daughter had a pet tortoise when she was around 5. She played with constantly until one day she decided to kiss it on the mouth. Big mistake. It latched onto her upper lip and wouldn't let go. Oh-jeez We thought we were going to have to take her to the emergency room for a while before it turned loose. That ended her infatuation with tortoises. Big Grin

My pets have been more traditional, either cats or dogs. The funny thing is, when I quit smoking I found out I am extremely allergic to cats. We've stuck to dogs since then.

We have these:

Gopher tortoise that are protected by law.

People, stupid people, have been known to stop dead in the road (55 mph highway) and 'help' the darn thing across the road. I nearly killed one of these idiots. They definitely would have earned the Darwin award.

Interesting video. Thanks for sharing.

I've seen what you described happen with other animals as well as turtles. People just don't always think things through. I carry a couple of reto-reflective safety vests in all of our vehicles for roadside emergencies. Pull over to the side of the road with warning flashers on, put on a vest and wait until there is no traffic. I've worked almost twenty years in road construction and seen too many close calls to take chances with my safety or anyone else's. I tend to be a belt and suspenders type anyway.

I think my Grandpa was one of these people, roads were less traveled in those days. This was 50 years ago. Nevertheless the Tortoise I had was a Mojave desert tortoise and they are also endangered. I named mine peppi, and he was fun when I was a kid, but as I have gotten older I have learned to appreciate the animals in there native environments.

I often travel to Florida on business and have seen these tortoises many times. There are hotels near the Cape that provide habitats for these animals and for sea turtles so you can watch them form the deck while having dinner.

Peppi did get a hold of my finger once, it took awhile to get him to let go. Much pain. I do still have the finger

see pic bloew of a Mojave Tortoise like Peppi: they love yellow flowers.

I wouldn't tell her about Knock Out roses then, 'cause if you plant and care for them according to instructions they are very easy to grow. Bigwink
