Gecko Greetings (352/365)

2011 12 18 _MG_7814w
“With your lovely smile.
I see you slither away with your skin and your tail,
Your flickering tongue and your rattling scales
Like a real reptile.”

The Church. "Reptile." Starfish. Arista Records, 1988

TIME:  6:48 PM
SUBJECT:  Crested Gecko aka “Blade”

StellaDella has been fascinated by reptiles since seeing them at the library two years ago.  She has had HH and I take her to the exotic reptile store a number of times over the past year.  Apparently, for her, these trips were actually scouting expeditions to determine the reptile she was going to ask Santa to bring.  After many conversations with Santa, it was decided that she could have a Crested Gecko this year.  Since Santa can’t bring reptiles on his sleigh (it gets too cold for the critters), he called HH and co-ordinated the pick-up of the gecko from the Tye-Dyed Iguana today.  She promptly named him “Blade” and is one happy girl.
