One blue sky day, Thomas the ancient sea turtle (no idea how he came by the name) decided it was time to check out our little dog-beach shore. Poor Thomas, however, made it to the coast on his back. A kind surfer managed to roll him back onto his legs, and he had a long talk with Troy before returning his spirit to Poseidon. I am glad he was afforded that last dignity of being upright and proud beforehand— wish I knew what he told Troy though.
