Lizard in Living Color

This is kind of a repeat of an earlier post, except that I took time to color it.  There was a young man that asked me to draw a lizard for him.  I think that he has some kind of science display about lizards that he was working on.  I remembered that I had this drawing of an iguana and told him that I would print it out for him.  That seem to make him happy enough, but I did decide to put on the splash of color on it just so that his report would have that extra "zing" to it. (I like "zing."  Don't you?) There is a bit of an interesting story as to why I drew this lizard in the first place.  Go here to read the rest of the story.

In other news:  Our middle daughter, Andrea, became engaged last Sunday evening.  My now future son-in-law, Evan, surprised her as she arrived back from a mission trip to Haiti.  He was kind enough to have a talented friend put together a video of the event.  It's been getting a lot of attention on Facebook and the ladies especially have been giving reports about tearing up watching the thing.  I'm not telling you how many times I've teared up watching the thing—a dad likes seeing the smile of love on his daughter's face.

love the lizard sketch and story. Funny I just received a video bit of my nephew who surprised his girlfriend with a ring and got down on his knee to ask her to marry him. They belong to a car club and they had met at a park and all the windshields had a letter spelling out the big question! Who knew these kids could be romantic! Congrats to your daughter.
