The Tortoises' Resolutions

Yes, I know it's already a couple of weeks into the new year but you try getting two stubborn tortoises to hurry up and make resolutions - to hurry up and do anything! - and then come talk to me.

Anyway, Larry and Mrs. Larry hope that by making their resolutions public, they'll actually stick to them.  In 2011, the tortoises hope to:

Eat more greens
Eat more fruits and vegetables
Bask in the sun
Be nicer to each other
"Slow down" and enjoy life (like dining alfresco while munching fresh basil)


Hmm, they sound like pretty good resolutions to me.  Maybe those little tortoises are on to something...

On a cold day like today (yes, even here in FL!) I especially like the basking in the sun part. :)

Stacy, I'm learning a lot from the tortoises. Not sure if they're learning anything from me though... :)

Cathy, I think it's more like the doll and her guy. :)
