He got his own barn

He got his own barn

A Story by Jon Roggie

Tortoise is feeling slighted.
I know.
Stumpy got a new barn.
A younger tortoise is getting preferential treatment.
In Fresno.
 now I have to build a better barn.
I don't know how to build a barn,
 and would somebody tell me the if a tortoise barn is different?
Best bet is to stall.
"I need the spec's."
Tortoise grumbles,
  and walks away.
Back to my roses.

I am now wondering and picturing a tortoise barn now, when completed has comfortable recliner and tastefully decorated to tortoise's liking. No idea why my imagination is picturing a side table to place books and reading glasses when he or sheis off doing tortoisy thinks.
Who knew such wise and aged creatures were just as picky as us in our "keeping up with the Jones'" mentality 😀

He is our elder. Give him a break!
Hurt feelings. Someone is feeling neglected. I am left wondering why Stumpy is getting preferential treatment. You've got some work to do Jon to rectify the situation.

All good wishes.

I tend to ramble, and rarely explain myself. Take that as you will more..
