I clearly wasn't meant to be a turtle-owner, as on Thursday afternoon I had to hold another little turtle funeral. Kind of saw this one coming, though, as Queequeg has been ailing for weeks. Still kind of sad though. :(
Above is his final resting place in an origami lotus resting on all the rest of the turtle food. I'm giving up turtle ownership, at least in China. Below that, his not especially well-composed epitaph. Hard to know what to say except, you've been sick for a while and then one day you were floating. Sorry Queequeg. I hope you're off to the Pure Lands to be reborn as something less fragile.
