Arizona Home Inspector Meets Big Swifty the Tortoise!
As a Home Inspector, I come across all kinds of pets in the homes that I inspect. Some pets love me, some pets hate me, some want to eat me, others just follow me around and supervise. In recent months, I've been inspecting more occupied homes, but for awhile there it was mostly vacant houses with no animal friends. Over the years, I've had all types of animals follow me around during inspections. Afterall, I'm in their territory so I don't mind. But I never expected to be followed by a tortoise!
I don't know his real name, but I called this guy, "Big Swifty". He totally followed me around the backyard as I inspected this house. He'd start walking towards me and as soon as I moved, he'd turn and follow me. Sorry if the picture's a little blurry, he was really bookin' for a tortoise!

Thats awesome. Only in AZ I suppose. Maybe he was trying to intimidate you out of the back yard. He looks pretty serious in the pic

Is Big Swifty fast or are you slow. I dont see how a turtle can keep up with you.

Nice and quite useful blog. Would like to say that stock market hardly gives any second chance. Once opportunity lost means it’s gone forever. Now the biggest question is how to grab trading opportunities every time we trade?
