Friday night adventures!

So on Friday night, Drew and I finally commenced with Operation Joonbo Drop. (Yea, I didn't remember Leary being in that movie, either.) For more history, check out Drew's blog.

The quick history is that Drew and Michelle got two snapping turtles a few years ago, Benny and Joon. Joon quickly grew to twice Benny's size and started attacking him. Benny's been living in the bathtub for a few months and Joon has grown to behemoth proportions. So Drew made the executive decision to release her into the wild, and on Friday we did it at an undisclosed location in the metro Philadelphia region. Here is the photo documentation.

The beast in its cage.

Caught in the act.

Trudging into the wilderness.

Look at the size of that thing!!!

She loves it! And she's gone!

Disguises are important. Now, to the Sidecar to celebrate the successful venture!!

Drew and Mich Mich are so happy to have the sea beast out of their house!

Disguises are still important!

i love how she had to be carried in a cat carrier box like she were some rabid, hard to control beast. then again, i haven't seen her in some time.

i still think you should've tied a colored headband around her and dropped her in the sewer. she'd kick all the other mutant ninja turtles asses, fo sho'

so...maybe I'm just a bad mood because I don't like Van Halen so a whole day dedicated to them is kind of a bummer BUT...

Uh, did you try craigslist or anything like that? Or at least google "releasing turtles into the wild"? Seems like the consensus, at least in the fear mongering internet is that the turtle will die and/or possibly expose any native turtle species to weird things. :(

She is a hard-to-control beast. In order to get her out of the tank, I had to hold a thing in front of her face until she grabbed it, and then keep wriggling it around until Drew grabbed her from behind. It was ridiculous.

And Crystal, we're not even friends any more if you're not celebrating Van Halentine's Day.

And also, Drew did try to get rid of Joon for some time - months and months, maybe a whole year. She couldn't stay in the house, he couldn't get rid of her - so this seemed like the only option. SO THERE.
