You talkin' to me?

This is Algy, the tortoise my parents inherited 25 years ago when they moved to their current house.

We know he's old (many many decades) so he's allowed to be curmudgeonly. Today he even seemed a bit pi**ed off that we wanted to engage with him at all, and my mind flitted to that scene with Robert de Niro as Travis Bickle in Taxi Driver....

Travis Bickle: You talkin' to me? You talkin' to me? You talkin' to me? Then who the hell else are you talking... you talking to me? Well I'm the only one here. Who the f**k do you think you're talking to? Oh yeah? OK.
