My turtles deserve this. 

So, it’s winter in California. My 2 girls have to stay in at least 70 degrees if they can’t warm themselves by hauling themselves out of the trough and onto their wooden deck to bask in the sun. And there isn’t enough sun or warmth this time of year. So, I dropped a 250 watt submersible heater in there to keep it about 72 degrees.

Well now there’s no garden to water either (so no recycling their water to water the plants). That means their water gets dirty. So I am going to put this filter in with them to keep the water from getting stagnant and to keep it clean.

Very un-treehugger of me, I know. Normally I like using as much of their unfiltered water as I can to water the garden and then replace it with fresh, clean water. 3 birds 1 stone: recycle nutrient rich water to fertilize plants; bucketing out water keeps the water from getting stagnant; and finally, the water is perpetualy clean by replacing dirty water (to go to the garden) for clean water. Win-Win-Win. But Winters are not a win for this hippie, lol.

I can’t complain, it’s only $24 on Amazon.

And this is what I’d want if my BF wanted me to move in. *Hint*

Alright, if I had a BF and it wanted me to stay with him sometimes, I would have a list of demands (mostly sexual) and a list of items that I’d want in the home of said crazy person (mostly items from Amazon) so I wouldn’t have to bring stuff back and forth from motorhome to house… and it’d be something like this:

Also, the 2-6 and Randall the Chocolate Lionhead Oranda and the 2 turtles would also need a few things. But mostly this silly post is about ME, so I’ll do animal stuff later. :-).

(BTW, the iron-on patches would be for an enormous amount of ripped underpants. Here’s to hoping!

Discount Code for @WhistleLabs Pet Tracker!

If you’re like me and love your pet to pieces, and they are either indoor/outdoor OR runners (think of your fence-jumpers or 4th of July fireworks runaways) Then you should get this. I used them for many years both stationary and on the move in the RV, and it works great. Aside from a sh*tty customer service ordeal that I myself had with them, the service provided to keep your critter safe, having this device is priceless. And I have a discount for you too! Use this code and get $25 off the tracker and charger/base station.

Her’s the discount code, be good cheap #Stalkers…
