Big Park Adventures, Part 2

(Part 1 here)

During our stroll in the Big Park this weekend, Mommy and I visited a beautiful mosaic for some quiet reflection. I trundled over to inspect the tiny stones…and was instantly mobbed by a horde of admiring paparrazi! One girl even invited us to her lovely birthday picnic! (We sadly couldn’t stay.) I felt like a celebrity!

WHOA!!! Kirby you are exploring so much of the world! What did you imagine?! was there an eternal blooming crop of dandies?!?

ALHAMBRA, Calif. (AP) — A giant tortoise found ambling down a street in suburban Los Angeles has been reunited with its owners.

Great news for this big guy! I was just about to post the story of the ‘giant tortoise found wandering the streets of LA’ when I read that his humans had been found. I know you wanna be a shellebrity but don’t forget your roots big guy!

Today at the art show, mom’s art wasn’t the only thing on display. Being a celebrity tort is a lot of work. I have to meet my adoring fans and be as handsome as possible. Getting all those scritches is hard work too. Let’s not forget all the paparazzi wanting to take my picture and find out everything about me. Celebrity life is not for the soft shelled.

Good thing you’re so tough Waffles! You greeted those fans with grace, I can tell <3

He (the tortoise) takes up a little space. But he’s a character, you know?” he laughs. “He loves to hang with you. They don’t do much, but they love to come over if you’re sitting in the yard and sit next to you. He’s got a little social side of him.
