Meet Bert & Ernie

Two years ago, I was the proud owner of four baby red-eared sliders that I got from Myrtle Beach, named Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. Sadly, they met their demise during a hot, hot camping trip. :-(

This past Saturday, Mike and I were at the Discount Tire spot, and a literal "guy in a van" had two sliders for sale. Mike made them a deal they couldn't resist and rescued the two baby turtles. He doted on them immediately and we had to rush to Petsmart to get them everything they needed, although I already had a home for the previous turtles.

I introduce to you Bert...

...and Ernie.

On Monday morning, I caught them sleeping at about 6 am.

Loving my sliders and hoping to keep them alive this time,

Welcome to the family, Bert and Ernie!

My Sliders ("Will" and "Grace", as seen on my FB page) lasted for about 3 weeks :-\
