Hello George

It's starting to warm up again, and that means that critters that lay low in cold weather are starting to stir. That includes the little sagebrush lizards that live around here. There are a few around our house, and we like having them around because they eat spiders and bugs. On Saturday, however, we had one get into the house, which we'd rather not have happen.

House Lizard

This was the best photo I could get of this little lizard — we call them "George" collectively ‐ when it froze under the edge of a bookcase. They move pretty quickly, though.

We got a small box and a broom, and between Lisa and me, we shooed George into the box and took it outside. The moment the box opened, George shot out of it and ran back underneath the house. I'm sure there's lots of food for George there. Just don't come inside.
