There's A Lizard on My Leg...


Help! there is a lizard on my leg...


Baby says "I'll get it Mommy"


Baby" "See, I got it by one toe... " 

Mommy: "Never mind, I have it and will put it in the bushes"


GOTCHA! this is a re-enactment and a rubber lizard was used. the true story is, I was sitting in the swing, in the sunshine, with my head back, eyes closed and swinging back and forth. I felt a pine needle fall on my leg and opened my eyes and their sat a 5 inch black lizard on my leg... I scared him as bad as he scared me because when I STARTLED he ran up my leg and on to the swing arm and was gone.

I think they are cute lizards. But, I am not sure if I would like the feeling of one crawling on me, yikes! Happy Monday!

You had me fooled with the rubber lizard. He looked real to me. I know for a fact that having one of those crawl up my leg would seriously freak me out

Has! I love lizards, but the shock of seeing one on my leg would startle me too and I'm sure I'd fling him off. But they are so cute. So much better than mice!

I do believe I would not survive a lizard getting on me! I like to look at them but my entire life I have been afraid of having one on my body. Of course I have been bullied by many people over the years thinking it would be funny to put one on me Not!

OH my gosh, you had me! We have large frogs here around our pond but very few lizards. Your re-enactment was good, lots of fun!

Gail said...

Oh, no! That would have been a shock!

My kids when we went on holidays in Florida. They would play with the Lizards.
I thought they were cute but to have it on my leg.

Yes, I would heave it off.

Sandra I notice your hands are real brown.

Looks like you have a tan already while I look outside I see patches of snow still.

Oh my GOSH! Was he this same size-big? Huge! Because this is not your usual cute little lizards! I would have both peed and pooped my pants, then fainted. Thanks for the scary Stephen King reenactment, LOVE it! the only thing it lacks is the music from Jaws.

Girl! I would have had a heart attack! I'm not a fan of snakes or lizards!! LOL

That certainly would have scared me half to death! Fun re-enactment.....

Linda said...

Glad it was a lizard and not a BUG! I like lizards!

Ginny said...

I made the race cars for the kids, and an easy tiramisu for the grownups. So that is what the boys were eating. The tiramisu of course had coffee in it, and I gave Anne a taste of mine. She wrinkled her nose and needed a palette cleanser.

Yikes!!! I would have startled have the neighbourhood with the screams,if that had happened to me.

Michaele said...

Rubber or not that gave me the creeps. Large lizards are too much like alligators in my book. I did enjoy the thought of you in your swing. : )

For sure I would be startled if a lizard fell on my leg!!

DeniseinVA said...

I love the little guys but would not want to be startled like that by one!!!

Ida said...

I like lizards but I don't think I'd enjoy waking up to find one crawling up my leg. Glad you found humor in the situation so you could reinact it with the rubber lizard. That was fun.

They can move fast when they need to. I love lizards and lizard-like animals!

Breathtaking said...

Ha ha!! :) Love the re enactment pics and story, but a real live lizard crawling up my leg, would have made me jump higher than the swing!!!
