    Iguana...

    Paul and I were in the pool and an iguana was on the side in some plants being fed cherries by a few people (not allowed, but it is done)
    The iguana slipped off the tile coping and fell in and could not get out.
    Paul ran for one of the skimmer nets and I grabbed Paul's NE PATS ball cap.
    I put he cap over my hand for protection from the claws or biting and I had a few people in the pool with me cheering me on.
    Paul was still looking for a skimmer net or a pool attendant.
    I finally grabbed him using the cap as a hand protector and threw he and the cap out of the pool...............unfortunately the wet cap (no iguana as he ran off) landed on the feet of a lady who was pretty grumpy. She went a little postal and hurled the cap at me. Then she gave me the stink eye. I could not resist and told her next time I would throw the iguana in her lap. Will go out soon and look for my iguana friend.

    THINK.. is it Thoughtful? Helpful? Inspirational? Necessary? Kind? SIDTM

    mine is regular osteoarthritis, primarily in my hands, especially thumbs and wrists also in my neck.
    so, I HAVE to get in a pool every day to keep the joints moving.
    psoriatic is very tough to endure. I hope it rarely flares up.

    I’m sorry your arthritis is kicking up. I have psoriatic arthritis. I know the flare ups are not easy. Hopefully you’ll be better soon.

    You are the iguana hero! I give you so much credit. I usually run the other way when I see them. Lol. But, we hardly saw them in September.

    Iguanas have razor sharp teeth. I would have passed Mr. Iguana a piece of wood to float on and told him good luck. You're a hero, Andrea lol

    On one trip also at La Cabana an Iguana jumped in the pool and swam. People were screaming and I was cracking up! I guess he was hot and need to cool down. The pool attendant came with a net but each time he got close the Iguana swam to the other side. I followed it so as it swam away from me the pool attendant was able to final catch him.

    Andrea it would have been more funny if the Iguana landed on that ladies feet to hear her scream. LMAO...
