I absolutely love this! Can you tell us more, although really the haiku says it all doesn't it? ;-)

Thanks, Alan. On a housing estate where I deliver the mail, an old lady sometimes comes out of her bungalow to let her tortoise roam through the grass outside and eat it. Actually, she was about to show off the tortoise to a visiting nurse when I saw them.
