New mascot for the house project

On the way to the house site the other day, I noticed a large black lump in the road. At first I thought it might be a feral black cat that often hunts mice in the field below our house. But as I approached the animal, it didn't jump away - instead it barely took notice of me.

It was a huge snapping turtle. No, the irony was not lost upon me... surely this was a sign that I have been taking too long building this house. This beast was out of his element, taking his time getting to where he was going, and not letting anyone get in his way. What an inspiration!
