Yes, it is a slow news day here in St.Charles. However, I do have one fantastic story to tell and it is about one lizard whom we think rode with us up from Florida. A day before we left that state John was working outside around the back of our home getting the hoses ready for travel. He complained to me that he had trouble getting rid of a lizard who kept climbing into the electric generator exhaust pipe. He thought that eventually he had shooed it away. Fast forward to several days after we arrived here in St.Charles when I saw a lizard scurrying around our front tires. A week or so later he peeked at us from inside the front exhaust pipe. About a week ago after a rain shower he was on top of our picnic table lapping up water. Of course I am making the assumption it is the same lizard.
As I wrote earlier, I have done some research on lizards. And some do like warm metal, which may explain why Lenny continues to hang around us. There is a possibility that he just joined us here in Missouri, but I like to believe that he traveled up here with us. Course how he managed that only he knows, and it is something we will never know. I am just pleased that he continues to bless us with his presence. There are a lot worse creatures we could be dealing with like snakes, mice, or roaches!
