Last Friday I worked 16 hours on short sleep and came home and hit the bed at 11:30PM. I woke at midmorning and decided to drive 150 miles each way to see a band I like. I returned after 3AM and was up until sunrise. I took the trash out on my way to bed and was unexpectedly greeted by an old friend. Next to the trash can was Cheese, my box turtle, who had wandered off through a breech in her fence in April 2012 ! She just looked at me and wandered over, and calmly climbed into my outstretched hand. I took her into the basement and she immediately ate half a banana and a couple of fat nightcrawlers. What shocked me is that when I shared this news with friends and family, a couple of people asked me, "Are you SURE it was really Cheese ?". She's a red eyed female (unusual enough), and is also missing her right front and rear feet. They were missing when a neighbor gave her to me in 1998. If that wasn't a positive enough ID, the warm greeting I received sealed the deal. As I carried her through the back door and down the basement , she turned her head from side to side as we walked down the steps and through the basement. When I presented her the plate with banana slices, she ran toward it. Yeah, I'm sure, Cheese is back.
