Hey guys, I'm brand new here and thought I'd say hi and start off with a turtle story.

When I was in high school, my mom adopted a turtle from a friend who was sick and couldn't take care of him anymore. It took us months to come up with a name for him. He had a different name every week till oneday I just called him Trouble, and the name just stuck. We couldn't have picked a better name for him because he certainly lived up to it. He was quite the escape artist and loved to climb out of his aquarium. We kept him in the kitchen at the back of our house, and one time he escaped and we found him by the front door. There was another time when we took him outside and we turned our back for 5 seconds and he went under the car. My dad ended up having to use a broom to get him out. Trouble ended up going to a new home with a little boy who was obsessed with turtles. What ended up happening was that my kitty Buttercup decided to swing from a potted plant, and the entire thing toppled over, and my poor little man hit his head on the corner of the turtle tank. Needless to say, Trouble's aquarium shattered into a million pieces, but at that point we were so worried about our Butters. I stayed up all night and didn't sleep a wink, but thankfully he was fine. Butters was my little ironhead.

If anybody has any good stories feel free to share them.
