Ruminations on reading, writing, rural living, retirement, aging—and sometimes cats. And maybe a border collie or other critters.

A Cat Tale

What's captured Jim-Bob's attention?

He certainly is focused on something. What?

He moves in for a closer look. Something on the wall. . . .

Ahhh! He sees a lizard. 

A lizard that's missing a tail. Technically, this lizard is a five-lined skink which has the ability to shed its tail when caught by a predator. If the tail were still there, it would be blue.

Something else that's missing are pictures of what happened next: Jim-Bob jumped, the lizard fell to the deck, Jim-Bob grabbed it, I grabbed Jim-Bob, Jim-Bob dropped the lizard, the lizard ran under the car with Jim-Bob in hot pursuit.

Thus endeth the tale.
