What a way to start a day! I found a lizard in my over 115 year old farm house....and it's only MARCH! Truly not what I wanted to see, but like I said there is always something good in a situation if you only look for it and in this case, I had to look really, really, really hard to find it..... IT WASN'T A SNAKE! I have seen 3 snakes in my old house over the 38 years I have lived in it, and I know.....if a lizard can find "her" way in (I am sure she is a mama with lots of babies), I know a snake can. Yuck! There are advantages to cold weather.
