Yeah! I am Green and a Gecko...ya wanna make something of it?!

This little guy apparently thinks he's "all that", and is quite ready to take "Goliath" out.

Actually, he is a green Gecko that we find mainly on the west side of the island (Madagascar Day Gecko?), my son watched him hatch out of the egg while he was holding it in his hand and then the little guy headed for high ground! Which just so happened to be my sons nose!

The Gecko rather quickly realized he was heading the wrong direction and headed back down...using the hair on my sons arm like a sloth would use tree branches! He safely made it into the wilderness of a pot of impatiens. Very cute!

Our alternate Title would have been "So who is YOUR car insurance with?"

Fabulous picture. I like the expression in those eyes.

My wife, Patty, and I have been married for 52 years today. Imagine that.

I just got back from Hilo and tried to bring home some of Mikie's jam but TSA wouldn't let me! I saw your post about Mikie and I'm dying to get in touch with her. Would you mind emailing me with her contact information? I want to see if she can ship me some of her jam. Thanks!

I know that with the new rules on flights we all are having trouble coming to grips and understanding what is and is not allowed on board...sometimes it seems to change on a day by day basis. Here is Mikies e-mail for everyone weho is interested...
