Good to see old Eric again this year, or to give him his full name, Eric Edward Ernest Orthouse

If you look at the bottom picture you will see that his initials EEEO are on his back so what else could we call him?

We first met him three years ago when he got himself wedged under our wrought iron gates and they were crushing him. I had to lift the gate of its hinges to free him. I'm sure he pays us an annual visit just to say "Thanks, I'm still around". Of course it could be just to get some strawberries but I prefer my version.   ;)

Oh, yes! I see that now. He obviously belonged to someone previously.  Think he must love you and with strawberries on top, my word, you are his hero.  :D

just to clarify - the EEEO on his back are his natural shell pattern and nothing to do with me or a previous owner  ;D ;D

EEE-Zero is clearly its prison number and you are guilty of harbouring a convict on the run.
