      So Norbert the Turtle and Lucinda the Crab have been lovely pets. Sadly Lucinda mysteriously disappeared last weekend. Luke cleaned the tank and after that she was gone. We aren't completely sure what happened. We don't think she could have escaped on her own, but who knows. It's probably more likely that she got scooped up on accident. Or... Perhaps Norbert ate her. This is unlikely, as we found no remains. But it isn't for lack of trying on Norbert's part.
     The other day I walked over to the tank and noticed that both Norbert and Lucinda were sitting on the rock. Norbert was creeping up on Lucinda with the look of a mighty hunter in his eyes. He was hoping for lunch, I could tell.
    Then, the moment came and Norbert went in for the chomp. I'm sure he could almost taste the delicious crabbiness.
     Suddenly, Lucinda caught wind of the dastardly plot and scurried to safety. Norbert lost his balance and went plunging head over shell into the water. SPLOOSH!!! His dinner plans thoroughly spoiled.

    And Lucinda lived to see another day. At least until now. Who knows where she may be. Well anyway, I hope you are having a lovely week. Happy Wednesday!
