Off to See the Lizard...

Hum....something about that title just isn't right.

I don't have to go anywhere to see lizards.  I have several of the little critters in my house (Geckos) and dozens of the Texas Spiny Lizards outside under rocks.

Of course they're under rocks, Reffie.  Where ELSE would they be?  SHEESH!

Sorry about that.   Evil Twin hates packing and I'm having her do that for me today.

That's right.  It's time for Hubby and I to head to Glacier National Park in Montana.  While there, we hope to see glaciers, lakes, and other beautiful scenery.  I hope to see some wildlife but the emphasis is on the WILD.  I prefer my wildlife to be at a distance and not expect me to be food.  If I see this guy, I'm not joining him:


 
I must get to that packing.  I'll be finding some warmer clothes and rain gear as they may have a few storms up there.  Hopefully, I'll be able to post a few photos while I'm away.

I love geckos!

I even love the Geico gecko. He doesn't annoy me one bit.

And I'm glad you won't be joining any grizzlies for lunch or dinner!

Did you ever see that movie, Into The Wild? The guy who hiked up to Alaska and couldn't cross the river because it was too swollen? He died, ya know.

With that! Have a great trip!

*slap*

I deserved that.

Ohhh, I love the little Geico gecko. Do yours speak with an Aussie accent?

Have fun in Montana and don't get "ett by a bar". The one at the picnic table looks like he's waiting for you. He should have a fork and spoon in his paws.

I'm looking forward to your photos. Have a great time. :)

Have a great time and yes, please don't become food.
That would be bad...I'm talking to you ET!

I rather fancy the plucky little Geico guy, my own self. Except I think he's supposed to be Cockney, Leeuna. Have a great time, Reffie, and tie your food up high in the trees. You avoid the bears and I'll try to steer clear of hurricanes. (Vacation time for us, too.)

Ha! At least the bear has table manners! (Looks like he's waiting for his water glass.) "Oh, garcon!"

Have a great trip! (And, if need be, you can always drop 'ET' into a cravass pending your departure - she'll be fine, just give her a book of matches.)

YOU be the one to tell him "elbows off the table". Last time I said that to a bear, he kissed me on the mouth. You know, the kind of kiss that eventually digests your face?

So much for raising awareness...

Do you have house lizards? We have a Tokay Gecko and a Leopard Gecko. We also have a Blue-Tongued Skink.

Ziva said...

That bear is so cute, he looks exactly like M does when I haven't remembered to make him dinner. Have a great trip!

mama-face said...

I love the title, and I love that bear. Is he waiting for you?

I want details details and more details of your trip when you get back. Is evil twin going with you? I want to go to there so badly.

Have a great time and be safe.

I love your blog! I love the quirky evil twin, and all of the pix!

CatLadyLarew said...

My only advice... leave the Ben Gay at home! Enjoy your trip and bring back lots of pictures and tales of adventure to share with us!

Lauren said...

Have a great time! Maybe the bear was Yogi. He looked like a friendly chap even if he was naked and hairy and could crush you with his pinkie. Hm. I think I figured something out. Bear = bare, a homonym gone wild.

Hey, I work for the outfit that runs that park! Cool! Don't git et by bears, and don't git runned over by Bison if you see any, either. Bison are even more dangerous than bears, believe it or not.

Marissa said...

I don't think that bear will be satisfied with a bowl of porridge.

He's gonna want a side of Geek-meat so be careful.

Deb said...

Happy GNP-ing! Will Evil Twin stay behind and feed the geckos in your house? I wish we had geckos here in Maine. NutJob would have a blast with all those living squeaky toys!

sb.marianna said...

why wouldn't you join him? he looks cute. and he's waiting for you. he even seems civilized the way he put his paws on the table.
as long as you don't steal his food, you'll be ok. I hope...

We went camping once and a big racoon jumped up on the table right in front of my 3-year-old, who tried to pet it. The only other adult in the area, one of the other dads, took off running so it was up to me to shoo it away.

Ivy said...

Lizards are pretty rare here. You have to go to a zoo or buy one for a pet. But when I was in Vietnam five years ago, there were lizards everywhere!

One in particular, a gecko, hung around the entire time outside my hotel room in Saigon. I even named him Larry. The first time I came out of the hotel room, he scared the ever-living wits out of me. He moved from behind the light just as I walked out, so I caught him out of the corner of my eye. He looked enormous. Then I had to laugh when I took a second glance.

Have a great trip!!!

When I read the title of your blog, I just had to read on. Great writing and a huge infusion of humor. Great job, looking forward to reading more.

I'm not sure I could live in an area where there are so many insects, reptiles, bears or anything else. LOL.

Sorry for being away for a little while. As you'll see from my last post, I had some things going on. But it's good to be back in the game.

Enjoy your get-a-way.

Jean Knee said...

what? you're not back yet?

I bet your trip was awesome even if you dined with a bear....
