Gooey climbs Mt. Ajax

Gooey has shared her little home with our tortoise Ajax for the last month or so while Orlando’s crew has worked on our house.

Gooey wondering what the heck is in her house.

Ajax took over Gooey’s igloo and refused to come out for over a week. I think the heat and humidity finally got to him today and he finally came out.

Ajax is trying to burrow in a bit to cool off but Gooey just thinks he is another obstacle to climb. Or maybe Gooey is just getting even for Ajax taking over her house?

Ajax, the African Sulcata tortoise finally moved up to the Clayton house.

About 30 minutes after being turned loose Ajax had made it to the far side of the property.Ajax

It is amazing how fast these tortoises grow, Ajax is somewhere around 5 years old and is over 50 lbs. already! In the 2 years he had been at our other house he has totally excavated the entire back yard to an average depth of 18″ and dug one tunnel that extends at least 15′.

Gooey's Nest

Originally Gooey fell in love with her igloo dog goat house, but lately she has decided she likes breakfast (and all other meals) in bed. Rather than go the bother of taking hay into her house she just relocated to sleeping in the feed bin.

Bees Nest

I have been wanting bees but not like this! There is a hive inside the blockwall of the Clayton house and apparently they decided to swarm. Their first stop was the oleanders over the fence at The Fruity Chicken. My sweety, Karen, was a bit freaked out that we were all going to be assassinated by “killer” bees. That wasn’t to be though, by monday morning they had moved on for parts unknown.
