Seems crowded: from you and what army?

A relative gathering: Lizards’ reunion.

Hunting available. Draws them.

This season’s well seasoned.


Staff still singing that tune.

Sends regrets. For fewer posts or that musical link? Earworms.




More Bob here.

    Bob is a beauty. I like his friends too. Happy hunting 🙂

    Hmmm… for all of these years, perhaps I’ve misunderstood the lyrics to that old song about the red, red robin who enjoys bob, bob, bobbin’ along. Just saying.

    I had in mind going over to Armand Bayou. Then, I went outdoors. I changed my mind. Likewise, I’ve put off the grocery store, Walgreens, and a trip over to Froberg’s Farm. I think I’ll do some house cleaning. Anything to stay inside. Tell Bob to keep cool.

      Bob: “Even robins can’t take local heat until January. Sauntering is stylish. Bye, Bob”

    Always nice to have a post from Bob!

    Bob! Good you’re back. Thanks for clearing the house. Important. Big Bob family meeting coming. Good time. Careful HRH RC doesn’t torture small members. Give lots of tuna – makes her lazy. Happy hunting and great reunion Bob. Come sooner next. Missed.

    As an aside, I did a guest post over at Mark’s today I would be honored if you had the time to drop by. Thank You.

      Bob: “Hint welcomed. Now query concerning large dog paws. Too many relatives either punk lizards or ones experiencing canine encounters. Thank. Sauntering over. Bye, Bob”

    Bob-posts are great! I’m glad we have no lizards&snakes here…. the mama would kill the hearing of the whole neighbporhood with her wild screaming :o)

      Bob: “Mosquitoes need predators. Better than Deet. Naturally. But snakes. Slithery sneaks! Thanks. Bye, Bob”

    Welcome back, Bob! I’ve missed you cryptic wisdom. Ah I also miss those lovely little lizards from more tropical climates. Geckos were my favorite.

    Lizards may be tropical creatures.. but they’re super cool.


    • philosophermouseofthehedge / Aug 10 2016 2:01 pm

      Bob: “Naturally cool. Reason why smooth bar goers were named Lounge Lizards. (Wink) Bye, Bob.”

    Hi there, Bob. I wish I had a lizzard in the garden, so I could play with it all day 😀 Pawkisses for a Happy Day 🙂 ❤

      Bob: “We keep telling Staff RC Cat is not cheering and encouraging outdoor lizards with her paws on the window. RC insists cats are coaches and trainers for Lizard Olympics. (Wink) Bye, Bob”

    Bob! Bob! BOB!!!!!!!!!!!! WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN???? We had no signal and there was something wrong with our Human so we haven’t been here. But I just helped Her make a recording so I know we’re back. Mila wasn’t there so I got to help all by myself.
    I didn’t click go to your links yet because I wanted to let you know how much I missed you. I’m going to go now. Don’t stay away so long, Bob. You scared me.

    Signed and Sealed, Princess 👑 Pickles

      Bob: Slow simple living mode. How clever you are at helping your Human. (Nod). Lizard’s best wishes.” Bye, Bob
