No rain ? You are lucky ! my cats get flippers here it rained the whole June and now even in July. Lizzards how interesting, once one of my cat catched one and was very offended when she only had the tail in her mouth and the lizzard was gone !
Today Rosie is 2 months old, time goes by so fast !

Funny...I would've thought you'd mention all the lizards. :-)

Thanks for finding me! Happy TT!

The desert sounds like a great place! Sadly, my mom hates extremes of temperature - she has problems when it's either really hot or really cold - so the desert wouldn't work for her.

Lux said...

Although Mom complains about the heat sometimes, she's really glad she hardly ever sees snow. But where do you live where there aren't many cars? Las Cruces is beginning to remind Mom of the Indy 500.

I would love to visit a desert someday. A nice, warm, dry spot to see the stars. Sound wonderful!

Except for the lizards...

Ciar Cullen said...

Oh man, I want lots of lizards. They aren't so popular around new jersey. Damn.

Momma told us that she wants to retire to the desert but that is a long time from now, sigh.

This Canadian girl likes her 4 seasons. By the end of each one I'm ready to move on!

And I'm with Ciar--not too many lizards here in Toronto. :o)

Chairman Mao said...

hehehe, I like lizzards too but we don't have as many of 'em as you got or as many as Daisy's got. If they got in the housie, I'd play with 'em alla time!

Kittyhugs and purrs from MaoMao!

Jinger said...

I was going to ask you if there were any lizards there but I see someone already asked. The desert sounds like an amazing place to live. Secluded, quiet, perfect for focusing your thoughts. Am I ever jealous!

Lizards sound very fun! Like MaoMao said, we don't see too many here, but there are a few. Part of what makes them fun is that they are so fast -- makes playing with them quite a challenge!

The desert sounds lovely! We keep talking of moving to Arizona some day. I'm a bit afraid of the scorpions, but I love the idea of the sun!

Happy TT!

Caesar and Princess said...

This was a super great TT

Skeeter & LC said...

Wow, Lizards! Weve never seen one.

Oh, The Big Thing says that skink on the wall is one. But we couldnt catch him, so we still dont know what they are like or what they do when grabbed.

The lots of sunshine sounds real good, too!

I can comment! I've been trying to comment all week! Hooray! Now I forgot what I was going to say! I have such a hard time getting the comment box to come up!

Karen Jo said...

Hmmm, I'm guessing that you like lizards, right? I like to visit the desert sometimes, but I don't think I'd like living there. I prefer the mountains.

Gretchen said...

Deserts? Am I supposed to know about deserts? I live in the great northwest in an apartment. No deserts here. Get rain nine or ten months out of the year. I do like your list though. I've got lots of plastic lizards, but I ignore them. They don't move.
