I petted a Bearded Dragon


Bearded Dragon

I took these photos several years ago when the petting zoo came to the nursing facility where I volunteered. I was one of many who petted him..

Senior Puns found on Pungents...

If you lose something in a nursing home, don't stop looking until you search every nook and granny.

Pastry chef's know that old age crepes up on you

Senior citizen expects discount at a supermarket: “Do you have any Grey Coupon?”


I went to a geriatrics conference in the Everglades. I was attacked by goiters.

Did he feel all rough and spiky? These seem to be getting wildly popular! We see them everywhere! Even in the local Bounce and Play! Lots in PetSmart too. I like the goiter pun the best!

We are late the peeps had to take Dad's car in for a passenger side air bag recall. Crazy mom told dad she was riding in the backseat until the air bag was repaired. MOL Glad that is over the dealership is a long way from here to the north side of our county.

P.S. I think when they are mad or unhappy or sick, the big beard under their chin turns black. I have seen this on vet shows.

Glad someone likes those horny creatures!!!

Sandra, this was a hoot. I would have enjoyed those lizards very much. They truly are so prehistoric looking.

Gail said...

I can say I've never petted one of these. How amazing.

The grey coupon was my favorite, too!

That last photo is so poignant. My, what a few moment's time it takes to bring cheer to a senior's day. Your volunteer work must have been tremendously rewarding.

Lizards are so cool. This one is a nice looking one. Fun puns too.

Ann said...

He's certainly interesting looking but I think I would pass on petting him.

i am ridiculously afraid of reptiles and any other little crawling creature (a mouse, cockroach). whenever i see a lizard, i would scream at the top of my lungs and freeze on the spot. i know the lizards are harmless, but it's just their presence that freaks me out...they are cute creatures though.

Hello Sandra!:) What a gorgeous looking Lizard. I would have wanted to hold it. Love all the funnies, the grey coupon was a good one.:)
