“Leapin Lizards”

Description from Elis Mom: For those who aren't lucky enough to live in Florida, particularly Southwest Florida...there's a lot of geckos. This year seems like a bumper crop of them. As I walk thru the back yard, they fan out ahead of me like a heard of wildebeests on the Serengeti! So weird! As I collected my thoughts this AM, one lept on my foot and paused to take a look at me. I looked right back at him, and he decided to go on his way!

    Love your story – so CUTE! Could just picture it as you related it to us. Anyway, love all your picks. There are some new gems I’ve never seen before. I was thinking that maybe the teensie lizard charm might be just the thing for a brass charm.

    He decided you were one of the nice giants. It was a complement from a gecko. Must mean you were blessed. :) I love geckos. They were all over the walls in our room when I spent a month in the Philippines. Love your pick!

    Thanks, Ladies! When I say they spread out like a heard of wildebeests, I really mean it! There must be a hundred of them!

    How cool to visit the Philippines, Becky! I love Filipino food, and miss it dearly here in Fla. We have the critters in the house, too. Right now there’s 2 big males duking it out for the territory that is the living room windowpane, and when I opened the medicine chest the other day, there was a baby hanging out in there. At least they eat the bugs….so is my gecko problem really a problem?
