The Visitor

So my small group girls came over on Tuesday for one last shindig for the school year. Here they are. Aren't they cute?




At one point in the afternoon, our dogs were going crazy out in the yard. I kept yelling at them to be quiet but they weren't listening to me, so I went out to investigate. This is what they were barking at:


A three foot long monitor lizard sitting on our wall. Yep, three feet. At least.

Now...I know I live in Africa, but we are in the city, so except for goats, chickens, cows, and some pretty amazing birds, we don't see a lot of wildlife. So this was pretty cool. I went screaming back into the house..."You girls have to come see this!!!" and "Where's the camera? Where's the camera?"

As the Crocodile Hunter would say, "Isn't she gorgeous?"

Yes, indeed. As long as she stays away from me. And my daughter. And my house.
