How to Keep Track of Your Turtle

Info from Licensor: "31 years ago, my parents Brad and Linda went on their first date. While holding hands walking on the Town Lake Trail in Austin, Texas, my dad saw a small moving rock. As they approached, he soon realized this was no rock, this was their new baby turtle Gunther. Months went by and as their love grew, so did baby Gunther. Years passed, and now 30+ years and two children later, Gunther still swims around his aquarium as his same happy self. Although this story is sweet and loving, little did I know this would turn out to be a family affair. Living in Lynchburg, Virginia, I found a beautiful blonde haired girl named Cara. To my surprise, she agreed to a date and we went paddle boarding. On that chilly Virginia afternoon, the turtle family tradition continued once more. As our paddling began to slow, a little moving rock made his way onto our paddle-board in the middle of the lake. His name would be Frank. Two years go by and that beautiful, blonde-haired girl is now my wife, and we live with Frank as a happy family of 3. Throughout our first 6 months of marriage, I saw how active of a turtle Frank truly was. To help give him some more freedom, I opted to let him spend some time outside of his aquarium. Shocked to see his speed and agility, I decided the best way to keep an eye on him in our humble apartment was to tie a balloon to his shell. Frank is now ecstatic and energized to have some more freedom, and as his parents we feel more comfortable and secure to make sure he is safe and free from all Roombas and the neighborhood cat."
