The Lizard Girl

The lizard girl

The lizard girl-she better be glad I like the sound of her sawing fiddle and booming voice or I might just have to send her on down the road over her love of the creepy crawlies. In truth I couldn’t do without her comedic genius-her willingness to help-nor her creativity no more than I could do without the sawing or the singing.

    I never was much good with creepy crawlies. Now I don’t run and scream, but I don’t hug and kiss ’em either. If they stay out of my way, I’m quite content to stay out of theirs too. LOL
    God bless.

    My kids love those “Push up” lizards too. 🙂 Good luck tonight.

    Since several of my students were allergic to fur and/or feathers, my classroom was lined with reptiles and amphibians – the lizards had very distinct personalities and holding them at their desk was a prized reward for most of my students.
    While my husband would (and still does) occasionally bring me the traditional roses or other flowers, I was especially appreciative when he brought in extra crickets, meal worms, fruit flies, etc. for my menagerie (thus saving me a trip to the pet store!- – wild caughts tended to have parasites which harmed my critters.) Wonder if your Lizard Girl will find a beau who will do that for her. – – or maybe he will help her add to her collection instead.
    Have fun tonight – let the joy of music shine through.

    If you was to take off up Wesser Creek, which is just a little ways past where you are going to be tonight, turn off on Gassaway Road, foller it to the end and climb over the mountain, you would be at the head of Wiggins Creek where I was born and raised. It is only about a mile and a half that way. If you take the road, it is 6 or 8 miles.
    I know the Girls will big hit at Big Wesser BBQ!

    Tipper,
    and girls…Hope you have a wonderful evening. Wish I could be there as well. Besides doing a wonderful job singing in harmony the sound of their voices is becoming a distinct signature of
    recognition….You know like so many groups, the instant you hear them you know who they are!
    Does that make sense? Well, it does to me! I might ought to hush now! lol
    Love the lizard…I love lizards too. We have those little what I call Oak in disquise lizards…hard to see on the trees, since they blend in with the Oak trees…I love also the shiny blue streaked ones that hunt on my porch and raised beds as well. They actually become quite tame as they grow larger. So beautiful when the sun catches the stripes..
    Have a great night!
    Thanks Tipper

    Tipper,
    I’d like so much to see and hear
    my Favorite Country Girls tonite.
    I’ve been by that place across the
    River many times but never had a
    reason to go inside. Matter of fact,
    I use to camp below those Falls
    and fish from a paddle-boat. At
    nightfall the sounds on the water
    and in the alder bushes was
    Spectacular.
    In case my garden work wears me
    out, tell Chitter and Chatter to
    “Break a Leg”!!!…Ken

    Does the lizard have a name? I like Rustle or Twitch.
    The Girls hit another homer. I really like the enthusiasm Chitter is putting into her parts lately.

    The Lizard Girl has always liked those creepy crawly things, hasn’t she. Both girls, in fact, are the finest daughters a mom could have. Tipper, you and the Deer Hunter have done a fine job!
    That song is beautiful, wish I could be there tonight to hear them.

    Good luck tonight; you must be proud at their accomplishments. However, lizard girl can keep her slithery creatures. They are not my favorite – I watch them slither away as I work with my plants.

    Wish I could be at Wesser this weekend, but I’m being a Snowbird this year.
    I was the lizzard girl in my family, still am. Cute little critters.
