Why Hello, Mister Tortoise!

On the way home this evening, I drove past what appeared to be a very large tortoise.  I stopped the car about 50 feet beyond the dark lump and put it into reverse to check it out.

Yep!  It was a tortoise all right — and the biggest one I have ever seen outside of a zoo.  The old guy must weigh ten pounds.

It just goes to show, I never know what I will come across next around here!
