Share a chuckle with me and enjoy a Holiday Dave Barry classic as follows:
"Since I’ve lived in Miami, we’ve had one cold Christmas when the temperature briefly fell into the thirties. But snow did not fall from the sky. What fell from the sky were lizards. Really. I went outside on Christmas morning, and lying on my lawn, looking stunned, were at least a dozen bright-green lizards that had fallen out of the trees. These were not small lizards. These things were the size of cocker spaniels, and they had TEETH. That is not a normal Christmas-morning sight. There is no Christmas carol that goes: “Good King Wenceslas looked out/ On the feast of Stephen/ Saw big green lizards all about/ So he said, “I’m leavin’.”
Thanks, Joanne. You made me smile on a cold morning. :)
He's always so funny and it's true about the lizards...they do fall out of the trees when it gets very cold... And it's cold today! I better keep my eyes on the trees! LOL
LOL. Thanks, Joanne!
Joanne, how I empathize. I live in South Florida. It's so cold today, barely 40 degrees. And yes there is no snow but we can see many lizards out there.
That is so funny. I was in Florida in July, hotter then hell, and beyond. So I can't imagine snow at all, anywhere, ever. Poor green lizards.
At least you don't need a snowblower for green lizards. ;)
Dave Barry always makes me smile, too. I'm a piano teacher, so I've taught Good King Wenceslas hundreds of times.
I can't imagine lizards falling out of the trees. It must be quite a sight.
You're very welcome. With you witty style of writing, I knew you would appreciate this.
It's 30 degrees in South Carolina. We live near Charlotte. Really? You can see lizards? Are they in the trees?
Florida in the summer can be unbearable. It's the humidity. In South Carolina, we experience many hot summer days, also.
Now there's an optimistic POV. You're right--no snowblowers needed.
Joanne, I'd be very scared seeing lizards all over my yard. Love how different parts of this country are soooo different.
That's worse that raining cats and dogs. Good laugh, Joanne!
It would be really interesting to hear his take on Palmetto bugs!
I would probably faint if I saw ONE lizard, not to mention several.
That is too funny. You are clever, girl!
That's a good point. He's always writing about lizards and snakes, but has never written much about insects. Eek! They frighten me more than anything.
I love your short funnies, Joanne. Just what I needed on a busy day. Thanks for posting it. :)
So glad you enjoyed the short and funny post. Thanks for stopping by.
