Prince Anole~ reconsiders preparing to attend any Royal Funeral Events after being Left Out In The Cold All Night. I found the Prince and his loyal Royal Fly frozen this morning on Sun Deck. Temperatures dipped down to the freezing point as winter storm Walda Danced Across Texas last night. No Hail here (or the Prince would have been smashed w/fly).
NOT TO WORRY: The Prince and The Fly will thaw out shortly as the Texas Sun warms them.
(Reptiles and Insects can do that, I am not sure if humans can but some are frozen to find out).
I told You Guys the "Storm will Pass" and it did. Net Result at my place: fail*. Out of millions of rain clouds and tons of cold Colorado Wind, I received NO measurable rain. (Of course, no snow or hail.) It did get really, really cold)
Hope all of You are okay.
Enjoy your photo study: The Sun Breaks Thru!
Welcome to Rainbow Creek.
A Chilly Morning Walk to the Office Today!
He looks real dead to me.
Ah-His eye moved! Only his body is still frozen.

This Iris reflects the total rainfall accumulation.
I hope You enjoyed the trip up to my office! Maybe Google will invent cold air that blows out the computer so you can feel the temperature in any given location!
I have had a complaint registered against my Nature Blog by my best critic and sometimes friend whom I refer to on the Blog as "the blind guy". Some of You know he is legally blind and does not drive, so I take him to the store and on other chores. He can see out one eye a tunnel vision view of the world. Anyway, I can hear some of You saying: that must be funny, the blind leading the blind; and, You would be correct. So, I drove into town yesterday and gave him a ride to the Grocery Store. After that, we to to a chicken shack for a snack. He kinda mumbled that he had viewed the Blog Post the night before. I was thinking there must be a compliment coming, but I was dead wrong! He used our lunchtime to file a complaint against me!
I did assume well, maybe the blind guy could not really see the photos or words very well. Wrong again. He pointed out that I had misspelled Blog in the Title and said Bog. (I am still thinking how can he even see the title?) Turns out, on the computer screen he puts a magnifier in front of it and can see minute detail. Obviously, better than I can!
Anyway after our second trip to the buffet, the real reason for the complaint comes to the surface in this form: How could You ruin a perfectly good photo of a lizard by putting a stupid crown on his head???
Now I admit, I have alot of criticism coming my way, but never ever in my wildest creative dreams did I ever think anybody would object to me putting a crown on an image of Prince Anole~.
A little birdie told me I have offended all other people in the world who wear Crowns by attaching their blue bloodlines to their direct relative, a lowly anole. (Of course, it was the Cardinal, so one can never be sure of what they say). Who Knew?
I am very sorry to the whole world and intend to offend no one. However, I retain the creative right to put crowns on any of my creatures at any time for no reason at all. To my photofriends ( and one half-blind guy with a magnifying glass) who truly love the little lizards, I bring you the following Historical One of a Kind Photos of Prince Anole~ as he comes back to life from being frozen by the 18 hour winter storm: (without his crown):
