RIP Arnold


Turtle_red_ear_slider_rainforest_bgAt 5:55pm today I discovered our beloved Arnold the Red-Eared Slider Turtle had expired.  He is survived by Louie and a few goldfish.  He died of natural causes and appeared peaceful, it was a good death.  Arnold will be remembered for his ability to eat multiple goldfish in one sitting, absorbing sun rays on Monkey Rock, and swimming incessantly into the tank glass.  Upon viewing this post, please take a moment from your busy day to remember Arnold and send a prayer his way in Turtle Heaven.  He willed sole possession of Monkey Rock to Louie.  Rest in Peace old boy.

    From Seaview to Mid-Town to 11th st. to Franklin, from fountain to fish bowl to 10 gallon to 40 gallon, it has been long, boring journey spent swimming in circles. Now you are free…

    I will pour a forty of Old E out on the curb tonight in honor of you Arnold. You said it wasn’t a tumor, but time makes fools of us all.
