ON THE BACK BURNER

May 28

I am thinking that I live in a tropical paradise. Sitting, as I seem to be doing a lot of lately, I notice insects and creeping things that I never paid too much attention to before. I have very discretely watched a larger gecko pursue a smaller one. Male - female, I am guessing. I saw a poor water logged bee, try to fly home and then just fall off of our planter. Last night, I heard chirping in the second bedroom. There was a tiny tree  frog jumping all over the place. It was useless to help him. He was just out of control. Now , I am watching a dragon fly dry out. I still think of them as mosquito  hogs, but am trying to   be politically correct, but old ways are hard to break. We have a very large , black snake that squirms around back and forth right outside our slider. I know that he isn't poisoness , but I dislike seeing him that near to the slider. The other day, Bob pointed out something creeping along the glassof the slider. Outside, thankfully. It was a big, fat slug. He moved about one inch an hour. Lord knows where he is right now.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.
