Happy St. Patrick's Day!

PS: Thanks to all who visited while I was busy enjoying our visiting family! Photos to come!

January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.

@Linerberry: Glad you liked my 'contribution' ... I'm so tired after our busy weekend, it was time for a light-spirited image! :D

Lorraine from Canada

@Lorraine: I should have posted a link to the Geico Ins. Co. along with the photo. Have you ever seen their ads?

EYES WIDE SHUT from United Kingdom

What a cute little guy, he can visit me any time. I think he may be checking the label to ensure that it is ecologically safe to use!

@EYES WIDE SHUT: I thinkk you have a good point, Paul ... I thought he was cute too.
Have you ever seen the Geico Ins. Co. ads on TV?

Sarito from Basingstoke, United Kingdom

Did he mention car insurance while visiting?

17 Mar 2009 11:31am

17 Mar 2009 12:52pm

@tyan: You haven't seen our Geico Insurance advertisements on TV then. Here's a small image of him. The ads are very entertaining!

Jen from Alpharetta, United States

Perhaps he wanted a little lotion to smooth his skin! LOL!!!!
Cute fun shot

17 Mar 2009 2:02pm

@Jen: Thanks, Jen ... it was a shot I probably wouldn't have used except for the 'Silly Tuesday' idea. :D

MysLykeMeeh from Toronto, Canada cuteee...

@MysLykeMeeh: Thanks!

Fliss from Melbourne Beach, United States

I am forever finding them in the house...
Having fun in LV... we are waiting to leave here for the day so thought I would drop by while I could.

17 Mar 2009 2:38pm

@Fliss: We've only had a few in our 21 years. Mike caught him with only a little difficulty.

Hey, you're supposed to be on VACATION; what are doing online? :D

Susan from Fort Lauderdale, FL, United States

Oh, how these guys give me the creeps when the get in the house!!!!!

17 Mar 2009 3:07pm

@Susan: They don't really bother me; we've only had a few in our 21 years here.
I just don't want to find dead ones! :D

Chris from South Jersey, United States

his skin does look a little rough, that is probably why he is looking at your hand creme......
really amusing shot.....

17 Mar 2009 5:52pm

@Chris: Thanks, Chris ..... that's funny!

Marie-Hélène Ammor from Casablanca/Paris, Morocco

Just curious ...! :-) Great shot Judy !

Carol from United States

love it

JJ from Jersey City, United States

He seems interested in the antibacterial soap, my wife would freak if she saw this in the house

18 Mar 2009 1:55am

@JJ: They are so harmless, and far more afraid of us than we of them.
This fellow was VERY patient when I appeared w/the camera!

Barbara from Florida, United States

What a surprise capture this one is. I love it!
He looks like he is doing a dance and about to tell you, you could save money on your auto insurance.
Fun shot!

18 Mar 2009 3:03am

@Barbara: Thanks, Barb. I was so surprised that he 'stood' there for a photo!

Magda from Canada

Oh my! In our house he would get a lot of love! Maybe even a bath! (grin)

18 Mar 2009 4:30am

@Magda: I'm sure he would! xo

Japanalia from Yokohama, Japan

You DO get SOME things in your bathroom, Judy!!! I still remember the story with the frog! The capture is one in a million!

18 Mar 2009 11:25am

@Japanalia: I'm chuckling at your comment. The frog was in the small guest bath; this gecko was in our master bath.
It was a WONDER that I even spotted him! We don't normally have them inside the house, but with our very cold (abnormal) winter, I guess he was looking for a warm place to sleep ... or take a bath!

Laurie from New Jersey, United States

Hehe! Cute fella...but I don't think I would want to find on in my bath...but I guess it happens in Florida.

18 Mar 2009 1:03pm

@Laurie: We've had a couple of them in our 21 years here, so that's not bad.
This one was VERY timely for this recent Silly Tuesday! <grin>

Anthony Lambert from Bielefeld, Germany

Great shot,very well captured,did you rub a little lotion into his dry spots !!

18 Mar 2009 4:48pm

@Anthony Lambert: Thanks, Anthony ... and I'm so happy Mike captured him and put him outside to absorb the Florida humidity. That way, I didn't have to be the one to rub the lotion on him. <grin>

Harpo from Muncie, United States

Cool picture. Very good shot

20 Mar 2009 1:09am

@Harpo: Thank you ... it was a funny capture!
