I did not take the Picture above nor is it even of Florida but just love it and wanted it in my blog!

Ok, it was a nice Spring but now, no way to get around it, it is Summer Time !!!!!

Here in SE Florida, we have already had the Hot and Humid Weather and the Rainy Season will begin in the next few weeks. And you know what follows that......

So us WUBA's must get Strong and get Prepared; Queenie is already calling on the Troops!!!

I will keep my blog going for casual visits and conversations; also to have a place to post my pictures! I hope we can use it occasionally and we will have a few more "parties" in here but for now I will understand if we try to limit the number of "active" blogs we have going at this time. Sometimes it takes so long just to make the Good morning Rounds in the blogs!

Soon we will all be a little more serious in the "weather blogs" and all WUBA's must check in at Shera's, our WUBA Headquarters, as often as possible.


So thank you for the wonderful times we have had in this PARTY BLOG over the past 5 months. And we will do it again at a later date but for now, we got a lot of preparing to do with Hurricane Season soon to be upon us.

One Last Time for now: Let's Keep This Party Rocking!!!

(Hunk, we will still keep your services on speed dial!)

I got my Crocs, the official WUBA summer shoe!!! I did Pinkish Coral!!!

What is this? Photo #1 (seflagamma)
Saw this big lizard in my back yard this morning and got a few shots from a far. Not your typical back yard lizard that we have so many of down here and nor is it an iguana (unless maybe a very young one). Is it that one that is exotic and is taking over Florida? Going to post these two pictures and wait for someone in the know. From head to tail probably almost 2 foot long. Runs very fast with most power on hind legs almost upright.

Hi everyone,

got several mails about that lizard from non-posters.

I also think it is that one Hurripoon said; the exotic one that does not belong here. I saw an article in the newspaper that it a few weeks ago. I saw one like it a few years ago in the yard.

Code!LOL I've seen snakes also; only get upset if poison ones, but usually don't get close enough to tell. One time I sweept out a black racer from my patio..it reared it's head up to me but eventually I guided itoutside.

I killed a king (I think) snake thinking it was coral snake (forgot that old poem about which of the red, yellow and black how they touch where they are good or get back jack!) so just killed it to be safe!LOL


Thanks for all of the guesses.. Actually I did not get very close to it at all. I used a lot of zoom on my camera because when I tried to get anywhere near it took off.
That is why the pic is not very focused I was very zoomed out.

Hurriphoon,

I think you're right about that lizard. Gonna read more about it now.

Since it's been introduced, does this mean it's going to be a threat to other species in FL?

Off to do some more research.

Ewwwww gamma! You shoulda killed it. Anything that crawls that close to the ground (too closely related to sanke IMO) is a goner, if I can get it! Glad you and hubby had a good time.

Oh, and a very good morning to ya!

Hello all, Im not sure if anyone has identified the lizard yet, but I think it is a Basiliscus vittatus or Brown Basilisk. Im surprised you got as close as you did for a photo, they run pretty fast. They are sometimes called the Jesus Lizard because they can run on water. They have been recently introduced to Florida. Hopefully the lizard did not glance at you and turn you into stone!

Hope everyone had a great day today. In West Palm Beach the weather was perfect for the outdoor festival.

Good night everyone!

Aquak, I cracked up when I read the blog of the newbie girl with the porn site! Of course, at work, I am blocked from entering certain websites and when I tried to go to her's I got that sign on my screen that told me this was a "forbiden" site ...here at work when folks go to forbiden sites, they usually get fired! So will have to wait until I get home to check it out!!!
When I saw your post I died laughing!!!
and the guys stumbling all over themself!!!

I doubt I get to make all of my regular rounds today; got a busy day at work. Not too many meetings but a lot of paperwork and some meeting with my direct reports to deliever their yearly performance appraisals. I enjoy giving the really good ones but really dislike the difficult ones that are going to make them sad or worse angry and mad. But that is part of my job and i did sign up for it.

Got to get my locale weather report for Geez's blog,

brb!

Good Friday Morning everyone!!!!

did not get a chance to work out last night at home; barely had time to settle in before Survivor then sleep.

Karen! No problem, anyone outside of Florida assumes "west coast" means the West Coast of the US!!!

Clicker, will keep close taps on your move and the great pictures you select!

Love and Ogal, Good morning to you. I love this WUBA bunch so much. Still waiting on my package to arrive. I think Fran mailed them Monday, not sure UPS or USPS; hope they arrive today!

Rays!!! At least you are going to have wonderful weather for your wedding. You are putting the out of town family and guests in to hotels aren't you??? Not keeping them all at your house??? Mercy!!!LOL!!!

That was such a 'duh' I did. I totally forget that you guys have a west coast. I always thought WE were the west coast. I guess we're really the left west coast!!!

Still at work but leaving soon!

Hi !!! Thankyou so much for visiting my blog. Yes I started a new one for May and I swear the pictures are getting better every day. It's getting harder and harder to choose. My moving date to Hawaii is actually June 14th. As a matter-of-fact that picture you have above sure looks like Hawaii??!!

By the way....my outdoor thermometer here in Ocala read from 98 to 100 degrees F while I was driving home from grocery shopping at 5 PM on May 3rd. Unbelievable! In Kihei, Maui the temp. is only 83F. Til later. Come and visit my blog anytime, would love to have you.......Claire

LOL!!! Karen, like wanda said, when we say "west coast" we mean the west coast of florida!!! I totaly wasn't thinking of others that don't live in Florida!LOL

Karen, the Crocs are quite wide; I think you will find they will fit you very good. Notice in the picture how much wider they are than my foot.

Shera, Fran mailed my order I think she said on Monday so hope they will be waiting for me at home when I get in tonight. Cannot Wait. Will take pics of me in the shirts when I get a chance. will go to your blog now.

then I must get back to work!!!

{{{Rocket}}}}!!!LOL
