Growing up, I was a normal kid. I lived with my mother and father and my sister. We always had two dogs and two cats.
We were a normal family.
Then I got married.
There were no dogs and there were no cats. Zilch, nada, none!
But there was an iguana (actually two of them), a chinchilla, a hermit crab, some goldfish, and a beta fish. Of course, today there are rabbits.
Meet our green iguana, Monster.
His name was appropriate for him. He was as large as a monster, and truthfully, he looked like one too! When friends and family came to visit you could see their eyes enlarge. You could espy them taking in a deep breath and pulling back away. For you see, Monster was allowed to “rome” the house when we were home. He sat on the back of the couch, he had a special “lizard door” so he could go outside and sun himself, and he went up and down the stairs.
It’s always fun to browse through those old treasured photos. And when I came across these, all I could do was wonder what in the world were we thinking?
