Re: Lizard in the Sink

Beans is 10 or so years old, Donna. She's reached that age where she chases only those things that move slower than she wants to run. Last weekend, she brought me an unharmed baby mockingbird, [Abel, I think], that she obviously intended to harm if I didn't want it and praise her for it. So I praised her, and put the poor little fledgling outside where its parents probably killed it. Ma Nature's cruelty is not limited to the likes of Charley, Frances, and Ivan--it's also in the details.

And Beans just lets this be!?? My cat or dog, probably both would be
chasing it around the house!


Ms. Fatma washes the dishes last thing in the PM. First thing in the
[after making the coffee] I put them away. This morning when I emptied
the dish drainer [no mechanical washer here], I discovered an anole in
the sink. It was trying to get out, but the steep porcelain sides of
the sink continually thwarted its attempts. When the dishes were in
their proper places, I removed the drainer. The anole became
stock-still; I grabbed it, carried it to the back door, and tried to
toss it outside. "Tried" is the controlling word here. It grabbed onto
my index finger so tightly I had to pluck it off. I put it in the top
of a corkscrew croton next to the door. I locked the door as soon as
arm was again inside the house.
