It's lizard season down in Texas, y'all. Check this out:



He crawled across my window the other day, and that is indeed a sail-like thing projecting from his throat, which he can extend and retract. I have no idea what species he is. I love lizards.

I have geccos amd lizards all over my house - not real ones - but random little pretend ones that are planted here and there.
Fell in love with lizards and geccos after spending all that time in the Maldives

Just looked it up, the lizard is a green anole. They also have a limited ability to change color. The sail is called a dewlap.

It was 102 when I left work yesterday at noon. Thank god we have a pool. I sat submerged in it like a croc.

Today driving through Phoenix it was 115. When we stopped for lunch and I opened the car door, I was hit with a wall of heat. How the hell senior lives up here full time is beyond me.

Now I'm lucky to be in Flagstaff for a conference and it is now a cool 70. It is going from a high of 90 down to 48 tonight. I want to move here and am jealous of junior going to college here BUT then I remember 10 feet of snow in the winter so...

Lizards that can change colour are often labelled  Chameleons.

Life in the desert, huh? Here in the DFW area it's been warm and humid, basically miserable, when there's no thunderstorm on of course. I checked the weather one morning last week before walking the dog and it was 83 degrees with 93 percent humidity. Basically, it should have been raining, but somehow was not.

Flagstaff is above the Mogollon Rim, on the Colorado Plateau...hence it's much cooler. What makes Arizona great is the complete change half-way up the state.

Get a job at Northern Arizona University. Such a wonderful campus. I had lots of meetings and lectures there when I taught at the University of Arizona. Any excuse for a trip up beautiful Oak Creek Canyon.

yup. At least by living in the high Sonoran Desert we don't have much humidity except when it's monsoon time (just over a month). Fire season has been wicked so far.

I love Oak Creek. I cried when it was on fire a couple of years ago. One of the most beautiful places on earth...but property up here is EXPENSIVE. So will make do with visits. NAU is rocking. I love it. And junior had a very successful first year.
