Fascinating read! Can hardly wait to try some of the remedies.
You take care of yourself and don't overdo. I am a nurse and you have done
remarkable to get thru all you have. I bet the GallBladder was the Worst!
Glad you are up and about and keep on keepin on! Send the attachments at
your convience. Looks like from the list of your fabulous yard that you wore
your valve out just spraying and digging all those holes. Us gardeners just
can't sit by the side lines, got to be in the dirt or grafting something on
to something else. There is a man named George McAfee in Houston that could
graft ANYTHING.He always bud grafted the roses in Front of the Bear Creek
Extension Center. I would have loved to see it bloom but moved up to
Virginia instead.

Hi Ginda,
My mother had a gecko living in her apartment, near Ottawa, for about two
years. We took it to be a gecko, anyway. It had arrived in a potted plant,
an hibiscus. It was very discreet, loved to bathe in the sun on the window
sill, changed color with the environment (went from brown while lying on a
branch, grey on the window sill and turned instantly bright green when
eating cabbage worms. A big treat, which he took days to digest. He
absolutely refused potato beetles, maybe because it was not in its colour
palette to turn bright red. He also ate all the little flying insects, flies
off course, and got water from the plants in the window. When he ate too
much, he would grow and I think he would shed his skin, which appeared to be
a "painful" process, making him quiet and listless for a few days. His
territory was limited to the window sill, the potted plants and sometimes
the back if a couch nearby. It seems hard to believe that he would actually
eat cockroaches. Are they not too big and bony?
