So I am a week or two into my new (regular) shift and so far so good. I really like the job. It is fairly easy and the people on the phones are a lot more pleasant to talk to than the ones I had the pleasure of talking to on my last job. If the drive wasn’t so long it would be absolutely perfect.

It has been extremely hot here in Oklahoma. It has been weeks of temperatures above 100, with very little rain. I thought I was used to the heat living in Florida, however this is hotter, and the wind is hot. Florida with the water surrounding it, I don’t think I ever saw it above 95, and the breeze is cool because of the water cooling it down, so at least the breeze was nice. I feel like I am in a furnace, and have been having to use my AC a lot. Well, at least it isn’t snowing.

The other day I looked out my kitchen window and I saw a little Eastern or Florida Box Turtle. I had to run out and get him and bring him in. He is really cute. I have pictures on my phone however I don’t’ get a good signal at work, so I cant send them to myself. Once I get home I will update with pictures. I haven’t named him het. I was thinking of Jake, but not sure. For some reason that name is sticking with me. He seems really shy, however that just could be that he is a bit scared and stuff. I set out some food and water for him to eat, he hasn’t touched it yet, but when he gets hungry enough he will I am sure. Well, I just looked up a box turtle web site and looked at sexing them. It looks like makes and females are different than water turtles, where the female is more round and the male is more flat, so I may have another female. So Jake may be Jakette or something. I will have to think about it.

I finally got on that Google+ site. So far it seems pretty cool. Will be better once more people join up. If you are there you can find me under Natures Revenge. Look for the dinosaur eating the fish.

Don’t forget! http://projectpostcard.org Thanks!
