lucky, the pirate lizard

i remember when i was a youngster, we lived in fallbrook for a bit,,, it was cool, similar to where we live now, country {ish}. we would always find a love for the life roaming around. my older brother and i would catch lizards, what seemed like, everyday of my life in that house. its was always a good time. wed keep em for the day, in a bucket, and let the little guys loose by the days end. i did keep one. once. its was a mellow little guy. anyway, catching lizards is sorta a found memory of mine, and brings back great memories. fuzzy guys,,,
today when i rolled in from picking the dude up from school, the kiddos went straight to the back yard to build their *pirate ship* as they so often do on awesome days such as today. the weather is beautiful. buttttt,,, i have to admit, i, scratch that, we, adore the rain around here. were farmers, so, of course we do. although ive always loved the gloomy, cold, rainy, cozy weather. anyway, focus ally, focus,,, today, when the pool guy came to clean the pool, there was a big ol lizard on the tile inside the pool {not, like, in the water, it was on the jacuzzi tile}. i was so proud of my little man, he went straight down and grabbed that lizard like hes done it a thousand times. now, if you know my little man, hes quite the cautious little guy, much like hes daddy,,, so you gotta understand how very proud i was when i saw him, fearless, go in straight for that lizard, snatch it up and hang on to him for some time. of course, the kids wanted to keep him, you know, in our home and all. yeah, thats not happening, but still, for some reason, i love this little afternoon and this cute story. they named him the *pirate lizard*, and im the *mama pirate*,,, good things,,,
no, hes not dead,,, the dude was showing me his belly, the colors of blue and yellow.
although, im sure the pirate lizard wanted us to believe that he was, in fact a goner,,,
love, ally

The pictures are awesome... that one with the lizard on his back kinda creeps me out tho.... all scaly....are they cold?? I've never held one before. Nothing like that around here in MO.

So the little guy was playing dead?? Do they really do that? Is that normal?

See, I am full of questions now... all because of a little lizard!! Thanks ally!!

lol I love how your cutie girl is staying cautiously behind her brother, but never taking her eyes off the pirate lizard, he was a fatty, maybe he is a pregnant she!
