Murder most foul.


A few weeks ago I went to open my mail box and guess who was hiding in the hinge! Oh my word, not pretty and I wasn’t even woman enough to open & close the mail box over & over again to put the poor little bugger out of his misery! I just walked away racked by guilt and found him devoured by ants the next day. Now I knock on my mail box before entering.

A few years ago I went to close my bedroom window and guess who was hiding in the window jam! Oh my word, not pretty and I wasn’t even woman enough to open & shut the window over and over again to put the poor little bugger out of his misery! I just walked away racked by guilt about how bad I felt for squishing the poor innocent little gecko! Now I look before closing the window.

I go in my storage closet every few weeks and (you guessed it) who’s there to greet me in the door jam but a dried up, prehistoric, stuck to the door jam, former gecko!

So imagine my delight at seeing this plump little fellow on the outside of the screen and seemingly out of harms way. I just had to take his photo to prove he was still alive before I blinded him to death with my flash!

I'd rather be a centepide at Ulli & Michelle's house than a gecko at yours...

Any excuse to get in Meesh's knickers...But come to think of it, we never did find out exactly what part they played in the centipede eradication program!

If Ulles would have put my knickers on, it would be the ball eradication program!!
