    You know, I was going to say that if this had involved mini-Ernsts I may well have had to track you down and kill you with a tray.

  26. If you were to set that story to music, it would have to be Paul kelly's "To her door" Siobhan.

  31. I had an emotional tear, but it turned to a tear from pissing myself when I read Kim's comment - why a tray?? The both of you with your way too cleverness get me.

    Thanks for taking us all on this wonderful journey with Ernst, I hope this isn't really the end, just the end of part one. By the way, what is the name of Ernst's little lady?

  47. Jodie, you're killing me! What a story! Thank you! Thank you! What amazing turtles! When I was a little girl, my favorite stuffed animal was this ratty old turtle called Terry. He didn't have half as cute eyes as Ernst, though!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Sooz - the 'kill you with a tray' comment has long-standing history between me and Blackbird (do you guys know/read Blackbird? She is a LEGEND). Anyway, it's from this:

  62. Oh, this was such a wonderful story! Thank you for telling it, and letting us all share Ernst's journey.

    That last picture made me a bit moist around the eyes. :)

    ReplyDelete
  63. It's take a very special turtle to admit he's wrong. Awwwwwwwwww...such a sweet story and I'm a sucker for a happy ending. Or perhaps he just missed her cooking? :o)

    ReplyDelete
  64. Oh I gasped when I saw that last pic, then I cried a little. How do you make your little creatures actually come to life? Why am I crying about a little turtle who finally found his way home??? Thanks so much for sharing this Jodie. I've said it before, I'll say it again, you seriously need to put that into a book xx

    ReplyDelete
  65. I cried! Do you realise how amazing and clever yu are to make people so teary over a few pictures, I just ove them... i ma premenstral but I reckon I still would have cried! xx

    ReplyDelete
  66. The teacher in me would so love to turn this into a children's book! Love it! Vista are doing great little flip photo books, would be very cute as one of these...even in the small free flip book vrsion, just for fun. If you can't be bothered throw them on disk and I'll whip it up for you! -consider it a belated 40th presssie!Love Tracey

    ReplyDelete
  75. Can we hope for "happily ever after"? Such cute turtles. I hope you make a pattern of them...

    ReplyDelete
  76. This should come with a warning - do not read when beset by hormones of the lady kind. Eye leakage ensues.

    ReplyDelete
  77. HAHAHAHAHA!!! You're hysterical! I'll be laughing about that all day -- you're soooo cute!!!

    ReplyDelete
  78. Awwwwwwwwwwwww!!! I actually said "awww" out loud. Now I think I might cry.

    ReplyDelete
  79. My son loves turtles. I hope that you make the pattern available for us! I've loved the little snap shot stories. Ernst is a great little chap.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Oh that was just fabulous!
    Have thoroughly enjoyed watching Ernst's adventures, you really REALLY need to get these put into a book. My niece and nephew would love it.

  88. Who would have thought that a turtle named Ernst would have had me checking my computer daily to see how it all ends!? I'm so happy for the little guy, and Jodie you are so awesome!! And don't let anyone tell you you should be doing anything else! You rock!
    Oh and you so could write a book played out with your fabulous softies!!
