Meet Buckshot the Tortoise!

Hello Friends,

I wanted to share an informative and fun video about tortoises (and turtles) with you. I didn’t go looking for this – my daughter sent me the link – she knows me so well!

I am currently trying to get my physical strength back. Our dog has tripped me twice in one week and both times I went down. Lately she has been lying in unusual places where I just didn’t see her! I keep telling my husband she must be trying to kill me because she’s sick of the gross medicine I have to give her twice a day for the rest of her life!  😉

Anyway, I am not sure I am going to be able to re-do my picture book painting for the real Golden Ticket contest that the illustration instructors are doing. It would be due in five days and I really don’t want to be crippled from trying! I got a lot of feedback from classmates about changes I can make to help it look better. All their suggestions were helpful. But my gut is telling me not to push it.

I hope to do some sketching for fun soon, but in the meantime, enjoy this fun video!

Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug! 🙂

When I began this blog I was simply going to share my writing. However, after being part of the blogging world for quite some time now, I decided to begin sharing my artwork. Patsy's Creative Corner will always have my artwork. Thanks for visiting! :)

  1. It’s supposed to be a fun project so don’t overdo it if you’re not up to it.

  2. Great video! I’m sorry your dog is trying to kill you. My mother had one that got in front of her every time she would start up or down the stairs. We had to re-home him as she was already in very fragile health and lived alone. We also re-homed my mother. She came to live next door to us in her own place so we could keep a close eye on her. Do be careful. I’m sorry for the dog as well having to take awful medicine.

    • Thank you! Well, I went and got a massage yesterday. I only have one more drawing to do for the Golden Ticket contest and I am going to do a black and white one. So I may have to just really take it easy after today! Our poor dog is just going blind, can’t really hear well, and is a little senile. But other than that, she is fine. It will be hard to see her go whenever that might be. She is 16 now!
