I am a lady, long slender and tempting. Only please, if you are looking for a mate, make no appointments for tomorrow you won’t make them. Please do not think I am not appreciative of your advances, I am, it’s just I happen to be very fond of  small men and you fit the menu. mmmm.

I find that hanging around places like this or sitting on leaves is a perfect place to find my lunch No! I mean love. (must remember not to mention food just now).  I get hungry around now you look divine fancy a… (no, no stop it not yet) Yes, I am looking for a husband but somehow I can’t seem to find one or if I do I can not keep him. Is it something I say or something I do? please tell me, I really need to know and you look such a kind handsome understanding Mantis.  Oh yes I would like to have children and I am sure you would make a good father.

You would like to marry me? me? who never gets to be the bride, you want to marry me? Oh no no I’d love to be Mrs Mantis I really would.

No officer I really don’t know what happened. We had a wonderful courtship, he was very attentive and showed himself to be very caring and when we tied the knot he seemed so happy then he just lost his head…..

?????????????

I seem to be naming the creatures who wander, fly or crawl into our lives and cause us some amusement. Although I will state here, it’s actually my wife who names them I just comment.

Take Git! He is a small no medium-sized Gecko who can be found in the battery house and seems to wait for my wife to arrive to turn on the inverter. Then I hear ‘You little git don’t do that’. Git sits on the panel bar then just as she reaches for the switch he makes a dart up the wall, we both know they wont hurt us but after her experiences with the odd Hissing Sid any sudden movement makes her jump, which explains why all doors and windows have net frames.

Well the other evening we came home from town to find a small version of Git between the fly screen frame and the front door. My wife opened the outer door and the little git slid under the main door into the hall. Leaving both doors wide open my wife then disappeared inside telling me the gecko was behind one of the water bottles under the book shelf. So there I am on hands and knees trying to see this little thing which had put its self into the corner and was playing ‘you can’t see me’; however once it knew it was spotted it tried to make a break for it but I managed to shoo it out of the door without hurting it. Later that night I heard my wife on her way to turn off the generator ‘oh no you don’t you Git’ apparently Git himself was sitting on the wall above the doorway, she presumed, in the hope of a quick dive into the warm.

I will admit they are noisy blighter’s, we had enough of them in the little house when we first moved here all night long chatting to each other then we both used to shout SHUT UP!!!
