Funny thing happened on.....

the way into the Barn this morning. :grin: NO, it wasn't a demonspawn (for once!).......the kids ran ahead of me and LM. She and I were discussing the bunnies (or was it cats? Whatever...), and I went to open the door....*something* fell almost on top of me.

I bent over to look (stupid, I know...but I have the curiosity of a cat), and it was a wee, little, itty-bitty, barely-an-inch-long baby gecko. *Totally* cute, and totally terrified. He/she/it tried to run under the door (squish city), then tried to run UP the door (too little to get a good grip), so I caught...it, and gently carried it inside to show the resident reptile expert :grin: - that would be Herself. :bigger grin:

We all trooped outside, where I lifted the top hand to show her the wee thing, and the crazy bugger ran up my arm (yes, I screamed. It.....tickled. And startled me) Herself grabbed it (it fell on the ground in all the....confusion. :grin:) and set it loose on the wall.

I don't mind geckos - they're cute....but I don't really like them heading for my face. I'm sure this one had big, nasty, pointed teeth - and he looked hungry. :shudder:

How's that for a wake-up? :grin:

Himself and LM were totally unimpressed with the whole goings-on. Silly kidlets - they should have been more inspired, think of the stories they could tell at school! :grin:

I'm wearing my horsie Birks today - they amuse me. :grin: I need to be amused today....

We're working on re-doing all the accounts in Mrs. boss's books. Fun stuff - NOT. It wouldn't be so bad, except she has no clue what we are doing (or why) and keeps protesting all the basis amounts we are putting in. :grrrrrrrrrrrr: Add to it the fact that the Financial (un)Advisor keeps changing what he wants us to do.........:bangs head:

Lunch today - we took Ms. boss out for Boss's Day. Went to Ziziki's - mmmmmmmmmmm. Lamb salad. Good stuff....and I am. Stuffed, I mean. :grin: Gotta do something for the kids tonight - think I'll be abstaining. No room! The Tiramisu was.....yummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmy. :grin:

Gotta go deed-diving - Fun Stuff!!!
