Invasion of the Turtle....

Through out our married life turtles have played an important part....
When we first met, I had turtles in the back window of my car..
When CityBoy traveled in the Cayman Islands he always brought us carved turtles as gifts..
When the MaleChild was small we called him "Tortuga" on some days...
He called the FemaleChild "TuTu" his baby version of turtle...
When CityBoy and I decided to purchase a Barn Quilt for the Cabin the choice was a no brainer...
Here he is......Mr. Turtle.....the new family crest...!!

And here he is watching over the neighborhood..

Mr. Turtle was made by local artists..
