Bud, Turtle Bob Jr, and Their Girlfriend

On the left is Bud. You saw him before here. On the right is Turtle Bob Jr, who functions as a Little Bird Spa that has to be refilled about 3 times a day because the birds get in and splash all the water out while they play Marco-Polo. In the middle is some gal named Phoebe that hangs out a lot with Bud.


Bud now holds some stale wheat thins, sometimes leftover popcorn or bits of stale bread. As you can see from this picture, Phoebe has been scratching on Bud (who has only been glued in place for two weeks) as she tries to get every last crumb. In the center is a piece that sticks out, it was supposed to have a pod or something glued on it to fill the hole.  Instead it has become an annoyance to Phoebe as she digs in. Take a look below to see how diligent she is. By the way, don't be fooled by the green appearance of our backyard - the trees are actually in a lot of drought distress.

Cute video. She certainly likes to tickle the pottery man's tummy!
