svarog begs by tapping on the glass whenever my daughter opens her refrigerator.

Hello, lovely Svarog!
Have you ever tried a hug from France?! :o)

A very stylish "tapping" frog!

I guess turtles are smarter than I thought.

"How about a slice of baloney, a couple of chunks of cheese and a cold beer?"

Your daughter does excellent brush work. What kind of paints does she use on her turtle?

Bonjour, savarog! That is a mighty fine coat you are wearing.

I didn't know turtles were that smart. There was a woman on HGTV "Househunters" the other night who wanted a home with a pond for her two turtles that went everywhere with her. She was young and beautiful and blonde. :)

So beautiful! In my parents' house I remember them in the yard coming to the kitchen door waiting for little pieces of codfish early in the morning. :-)
