That Was No Lizard

Today is Tuesday, May 25, 2010. Yesterday was cloudy, with lots of thunder, but no rain. This morning looks to be more of the same. According to the weather man, we are supposed to have thunderstorms all week.

Yesterday while George and I were in the yard, I spotted this happy couple. Then George says come here, I walk over to where he is at and he says go back over there. Okay...Then he says come over here, now I spot what he is looking at. In between the stag horn and the tree is what appears to be some kind of reddish color snake. I DON'T DO SNAKES! So he doesn't have to tell me to go back anywhere, I am out of there. After a few minutes, he comes into the house to tell me that it wasn't a snake, it was a big lizard.

My eyes aren't what they use to be, but please a lizard? When is the last time you seen a red shiny lizard with a flat head? We have lived here over ten years and I have been blessed not to have run into a snake, the boys have. I know what I seen, and that was no lizard.

With the weather not going to be good today, I will get my craft room finished up. I still have pictures that I need to get framed and hung. Then to list items that are finished, just not listed. Probably won't be able to list because of the sun not making an appearance. But, I can write the descriptions in notepad and then take pictures when it is nice.

For those that like to read Discount New Age Books.com is having their $1 book sale. The shipping is $1 per book so $2 a book isn't bad at all. Their sale ends Thursday.

Remember yesterday, dream about tomorrow, but live today.~Brightest Blessings~


  1. When I was a kid and wandered my grandma's woods, one of my biggest fears was running into a snake. Would you believe I am 63 years old and never saw one in person?

  2. Hey Dede
    I am with you I don't like snakes at all!! When we lived out in the country the last year we were there we had a rattle snake measured out to be 6 foot long. That was one big snake. YIKKS!!
    I hope you have a wonderful day!!

  3. I am with you on snakes.. when we moved to our place we had them like crazy in the pond. needless to say we got rid of them. I have yet to see on this year yet I know it is only a matter of time... I know that most I see are harmless yet I just cant get myself to not like them... Guess I could just tell myself they are all lizards. :-) take care dear

  4. I bet you saw a snake, Dede. I just read that copperhead snakes are having a bumber crop in Virginia. I will be VERY careful where I walk! lol!

  5. eesh Love snakes when they're far, far away from me. :) Thanks for that book site. Amazing!

  6. Snakes not so much. I'll never forget watching a one eat a tree frog! Have you ever hear a frog scream? Horrible! Thanks for that link I'll go check it out. Have a wonderful day too! :)

  7. Ekkkkk! Dede, I am right behind you! Snakes fasinate me, but boy do they frighten me! I cant believe I put snake handling on my Thirty list! I am offically crazy, i must have been drunk when writing that thing! Sounds mad, but i was thinking of changing it for shark diving! I was thinking of doing it for charity!
    we shall see! Just read my comment back and yep, it does sound crazy! LOL! hugs to you Dede, and tread carefully!

  8. Ewwwww Dede, I don't do snakes or lizards, ewwwwww.......When we were in North Carolina we opened our front door and there was a Water Mocasin Snake between the screen door and main door, ewwwwww, goose bumps just thinking about it!!!

    We'll be getting those storms starting Thursday so maybe you will get some sunshine then, lol.
