My turtle karma balance is still not in my favor. but maybe it was the same turtle from 66 yesterday, and the same turtle from 66 the day before. I must rescue another turtle from destruction and then I will be neutral balance.
Really box turtles should not be on the shoulder of 66... it just isn't safe.
In other news- I have 'officially' moved out of the town house. All I need to do is change my address with the official channels.
I like the mountain, but not with the commute.
