Everything's disappearing fast here now Barbara, gone from hardly any Snow at all, to getting nowhere fast, just like your poor Turtle.

Perhaps he'll feel better knowing his far distant cousin is still sitting safely on our front doorstep? Mind you, pretty much everything else has "gone under" and I gather we have more of the white stuff to look forward to.
