This is not a pirate-related video, but I couldn't let "Talk Like a Pirate Day" go by without alluding to it at least a little bit. Hence, the heading.

Instead, this is a tortoise-related video. There was supposedly a large Tortoise In Residence at the hotel where I stayed in San Antonio last week. I saw its friends and atrium-mates, the Toucans In Residence. And the Parrots Down the Hall. Witnesses claim there really was a tortoise in that atrium, but it was always in its little Tortoise House when I came by to visit.

So there I was, feeling all tortoise-deprived, when my friend Lee posted this video about his daughter's pet tortoise, Linda. (I'm guessing it was the seven-year-old who named it.) I am posting this with permission from Lee, who composed and performed the song.
