THERE WILL BE SO MANY WONDERFUL THINGS TO DO FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY AND YOU CAN  MEET  REAL HOCKEY PLAYERS!!
www.BlueJacketsFoundation.org

THE TURTLES GET TO MEET STINGER AND GET AUTOGRAPHS FROM SOME HOCKEY PLAYERS!!!


SO ~AFTER A SEASON OF FUN IN THE SUN
AND ENJOYING WHAT FALL HAS TO BRING,
WE START TO WIND DOWN AND
PREPARE FOR A LONG WINTER'S NAP! 
BUT NOT BEFORE WE CELEBRATE THE HOLIDAYS AT HOLIDAY OFFICE PARTIES!
MOST OF THE TURTLES
HIBERNATE UNTIL MARCH. 
@@@@@@@@

THE ANIMALS WHO DO NOT HIBERNATE ALL WINTER SPEND THE COLDER MONTHS
LEARNING NEW TRICKS, READING BOOKS,
 AND BRUSHING UP ON THEIR
 LANGUAGE SKILLS,
THAT IS WHY MANY OF THE TURTLE LADY
ANIMALS ARE FLUENT IN OTHER LANGUAGES AND
SKILLED IN SCIENCE AND MATHEMATICS. 
@@@@@@@@@@@@@@


THIS TURTLE IS FLUENT IN THREE LANGUAGES!
(JUST TRYING TO SEE IF PEOPLE
REALLY READ ALL THIS STUFF...) AND I STILL HAVE A LITTLE SPACE ON THIS PAGE!

Do You See Your Town Or
City On This List? 
The turtles and I have been to
3 states and over a 
bajillion different places! 
A  bajillion is a number
more than bunches,
but not as big as the
national deficit.
