I have a salamander in my house. The little guy just walked in from the back deck and disappeared under the couch before Rocky or I could react. I have moved the couch, looked in the bedrooms, and can't find him. Unfortunately there is enough space under all the doors for him to slither from one room to another.
I am not sure how I'm going to sleep tonight, so I fixed myself a tall scotch and water to calm myself down and not worry about it. I don't think they are dangerous to people or dogs, at least I hope not.
My garden is coming along nicely, and I have several good sized tomatos on my plants. Jeannie's plants are doing much better but since I didn't get them into the ground right away they will take a little longer to produce. A couple of the plants are cherry tomatos. The squash and zucchini plants are growing well also.
Today has been a really hot day, but tomorrow will be a few degrees over the 100 mark. I hate this hot weather and having to close up the house to run the a/c. I like my doors and windows open, but of course that is how the salamander got in. The temps usually reach their peak by 6pm or so, and that is when I turned the a/c off and opened the doors. I may have to rethink things a bit.
Please send me good vibes that I won't have an unwanted visitor in my bed tonight. I think Rocky would react quickly - at least I hope he would.
