Summer Begins

My calendar that I have hanging on my fridge says that today, Summer Begins.

Just in case I missed all those other obvious signs of Summer.  You know...

The frizzy hair.

The weedy garden.


Pedicures and flip flops.

But the other sign of Summer around here is the arrival of Ziggy.

Ziggy (and his many incarnations) is our back porch lizard.  He's a beautiful bright green.  Ziggy and Scooter (otherwise known as "Lizard-Killer") enjoy a love-hate relationship.

Scooter sits glued to the back porch door waiting for Ziggy to scurry across the deck.  If Scooter is already out, it's "game on" and many is the time SM and I have seen Scooter hunker down, jaws clamped tight, with a twitching tail sticking out of his mouth.


Welcome to Summer Ya'll!


  1. Hope you have a happy and not-too-sticky summer, Tammy!

  2. Yep - got the hair thing. Yep - got the weedy thing. Do NOT have the Ziggy thing. We got chipmunks. Want some?

  3. Sounds like Scooter watches the calendar on the refrigerator, too. "Yay, it's summer. Ziggy should be appearing soon! Mmmm-mm, I can hardly wait."
