Looking For A Cricket…I Guess. I Hope.



I know for sure that summer has made it’s arrival…and it is not even June 1st. Yikes! Does that mean that the 102 degree weather is just around the corner? If so, I need to leave Texas until September.  I am thinking that Alaska would be nice.


The real reason that I may leave for Alaska…I have seen my first lizard of the summer! Staring at me from it’s hiding place on a tree. Waiting to chase me across the yard. Does the lizard in the tree want to catch a cricket…or me? 


My encounter with the lizard in the tree occurred as I was getting into my car. In one of the trees close to the driveway, I saw what looked like a stick moving down the tree trunk. Slowly moving. This behavior is quite abnormal for me…I walked over and took pictures of the lizard. The lizard immediately was frozen in place. Turns out the lizard was scared of me…imagine that! That lizard is bound to jump on my arm next week.




 Not close. Closer. Too close.

Way too close!

  1. I think you need one of those really huge zoom lenses …. that way you won’t have to get so close to those lizards LOL.
    You could come to Iowa for the summer….we don’t have lizards. We have humidity and mosquitos.


    • Iowa would be a very nice place to visit since I don’t mind humidity…it gives me an excuse for my hair style! And mosquitos…..can’t get rid of them…they are everywhere! I do need one of those lenses. I am really afraid of lizards! No kidding!

      • You played with them????? Oh dear! Of course, I did have frogs and turtles from the creek behind our house! I tried to keep them in a baby pool in the backyard every summer! I was afraid of lizards then too!


  2. Ha! A good one…decadent lounge lizards are just creepy. Very similar to my lizard on the tree. We are at our farm today and while riding my golf cart around the driveway…I spotted a very familiar image on the front of the farm truck. A giant lizard. Art.
