    Nicely done! I always feel so bad when I see a smashed turtle. I stop and move them too.

    And I should be back from sunny Arizona. Maybe a trip to REI? Or continue to torture me to look at neighborhoods I can't afford to move to?

    One unwelcome sign of spring: I was bitten by a mosquito last night.
    I know it has been unseasonably warm but we are not supposed to HAVE mosquitoes in Delaware in March. Not a good sign, bug-wise, for the rest of the season.
