I Just Love Watermelon and Salad!!! Mmmmm!


Hehe…when Mommy isn’t around I like to be a bad boy!


Huh? What, Mommy? Oh, the wind blew me here! One minute I was minding my business like a good boy…the next thing I knew, I landed here!

Hi everybody…we wanted to give the floor to Sheldon, our desert tortoise, today. He woke up from his long winter’s nap rather early this year. He was up in early March…usually he doesn’t come alive until about mid-May or early June. He is healthy and back to his normal, toddler-like self..getting into places he thinks will avail an escape.


Who’s a trouble-making toddler? Surely, not I! I am a sweet and innocent a guy as you’ll EVER meet. Really.

He doesn’t like fences. The bigger area we give him to roam, the more area he seems to want. Please enjoy our very own home video taken a year or so ago of his typical exploits. This was a wood-pile incident we think you’ll like and laugh at as you watch…

(Please forgive our shaky start on the clip…we aren’t well-versed with the video camera maneuvering…it DOES straighten out pretty quickly, however. Turn up the sound to hear the play-by-play dialogue!)


Thanks for coming by all!

CJ and Mousie and Sheldon, too!

We decided to create a seasonal aspect here. Maybe. For now, while we are fresh on the topic of CJ’s desert tortoise, Sheldon, we are simply going to allow him to be center-stage. For today, anyhow.


As promised, we present to you….


Sheldon’s face. In terms of tortoise beauty: he is a handsome little devil.   The operative word here IS devil.

Always have to realize he will be up to something when back is turned.




The pics show “somebody” attending to the duty of locating that darned old breach in the super-max penitentiary fence perimeter.


CJ catches somebody in the act of scaling the fence.

Uh oh. Mommy spoiled the plan again.

What?   That wasn’t ME.   The impostor  that’s who it was, Mom.


Here, Mom, a smile just for you, because I’m always so happy to see you.

Foiled again! But there’s tomorrow, hehe.


Yup. Operative word here:  D-e-v-i-l.

Eastern Lightning

Eastern Lightning, the Church of Almighty God was created because of the appearance and work of Almighty God, the second coming of the Lord Jesus, Christ of the last days. It is made up of all those who accept Almighty God’s work in the last days and are conquered and saved by His words. It was entirely founded by Almighty God personally and is led by Him as the Shepherd. It was definitely not created by a person. Christ is the truth, the way, and the life. God’s sheep hear God’s voice. As long as you read the words of Almighty God, you will see God has appeared.
