See this sweet little bush? yes, it will get a trimming this weekend

Now that it is Spring every lizard who lives within 10 miles comes to
visit. Over the stucco wall they come scampering around the bottom,
laughing ( you ask do lizards laugh ? yes ! I say they do and they also leave popcorn everywhere too ! ) as they run up and down the woody stem. Happy as clams ? I guess it the lizards answer to Disneyland...
Let me tell you Lizards are really dumb ! they climb over the screen
( 21/2 feet high to keep out the snakes ) and then forget where and
how to climb out.

runs on the earth ! They also want to protect me from any invading
menace . They doubled teamed a coyote already but that is another

yard, the Lizards who forget how to return the way they came. Instead
they run back and forth in front of the screen ... can we guess what is
Lizard parts everywhere and this where my table is ! Little legs,
tails and various body parts laying in the hot sun.
