Golfing With Friends

Boy has a way with bugs.
He once caught a wasp in an Ozarka bottle.
I don't know how,
but I asked him 

Boy also has a way with geckos.
He is my go-to guy
when the little devils invade the house.
Oddly, Boy's calm and gentle approach
to catching them 
works better than my prancing, screaming fits.

How Boy got this guy
to play golf with him,
I don't know.

Boy also coaxed him
to stay for photogs
before jumping into the bushes
by the back door.

I'll put the question to
Mr. Gecko
as I wait for Boy to arrive, 
cup in hand,
to escort him back outside.
Because I 
he'll be back.

They always are...

Boy is obviously a gecko whisperer. We have recently been dealing with rats in our crawlspace -- I'd way rather have a cute little gecko!

Yikes! I won't complain about the geckos anymore! Although we have had a problem with squirrels in the attic during the winter months and they are basically rats with tails. Critters - they are everywhere!
