Turtles and Lawn Mowers

So here's what turned up in our driveway last night - just an Eastern Box Turtle - but a pretty good-sized one. We took Jonathan out to see it, but he was a little scared of it - otherwise, HE'D be in the picture, too!
In other news, having only a few days left before we leave for extended vacation, we decided to finally cut the grass....well, until our lawn mower told us otherwise. It was running rough, so I shut it off, and then couldn't get it started again! Thanks to our awesome neighbor, Grover, and a few new parts acquired in a late-night stealth mission to Sears, we're back in business, but the grass still isn't cut. Hopefully, the rain will hold off today and Mark can come home from work a few hours early and we can get it done. If we don't, we're going to come back to hay. And a letter from the neighborhood association!
