I have a new guy in my life.
His name is Lenny and he visits me every day the sun shines.
He likes to laze around, sunning himself on the porch steps while I putter in my pots.
Pots, people…flower pots.
Yeah, he’s not much of a talker, but that’s fine. If I want noise, I’ll listen to the voices in my head.
He’s a bit shy of strangers. To be honest, he can be down right rude when my neighbors pop by to ooh and ahh over this spring’s bounty.
He turns his back and wanders off without so much as a ‘howdy do or by your leave’.
I really should talk to him about that; he’s ruining my street cred. I’ve heard the whispers…
‘Why does Rhonda spend so much time with Lenny the Lug, he’s so rude!”
See what I mean? Yeah, it’s time for a good chin wag with my fair weather friend.
The sun’s in and out today, so I’ll have to keep an eye out in case he shows up.
I’m running out of refreshment ideas though. (I wonder if that’s what keeps him coming back? The num nums?)
Well, I suppose I can mosey on down to my mailbox, which seems to be THE spot where the local buggaboos hang out.
I’ll just have to find a way to entice that crowd onto my porch steps; introduce them to Len so he can have them
over for dinner.
So, let me introduce you…
Leapin’ Lizards…isn’t he cute?

Um…cute? Ok, if you say so…what is, er..Lenny?
Yes….cute! He has legs, therefore not a snake. He eats bugs, therefore a friend of mine. I’m looking to see what he is…will advise. lol
Okay mim..here’s the scoop
He’s a Plestiodon Laticeps…otherwise known as a broad headed skink!
Now…just so you are well informed….Plestios means most and odontos means teeth.
Therefore…my little friend Lenny is a TOOTHY SKINK
I guess that’s better than a toothy skank? 😉 xo
that would be my guess…but only a guess mind you. 😉
A skink is so much better than a skank …. or a skunk….or….. , well anyways….I love your new friend! Great shots!!!
haha…glad you are the one voicing my thoughts exactly! and thanks…he is an easy target. 🙂
He’s a fine looking friend. Don’t listen to the negative gossip. You hang on to Lenny.
Thanks Andrew I agree. 🙂
He’s gorgeous, whatever he is!
I’d date him, if I were a skinkess FO SHO
I am not showing the monster you have a lizard come a callin’ he will want one too 😀
Oh lordy…we can’t have that 😆
I have one too but mine is bigger haha!
rofl…why does that NOT surprise me?
It’s in the outside washhouse (where I do laundry) and it keeps frightening the hell out of me! A goanna.
yeah, I’d say yours would likely eat mine. and don’t blame ya…least he could do is help out with the wash!
You have the nicest visitors
I really do Tink
