Glasgow Daily Photo

A photo a day from Scotland’s biggest city.

Typical Glaswegian

Posted by Jackie on June 22, 2008

One of the rooms in the glasshouse is set aside for lizards, frogs, snakes, creepy crawlies, a few birds and a few rodents (chinchillas, degus etc). I felt a bit uncomfortable at the birds and furry critters in particular being caged in rather confined, cheerless spaces to be honest. This lizard did make me laugh though – it reminded me of the human Glaswegians who pay good money to sit under a lamp and turn orange.

    Ha! My sister-in-law is one such person who sits under the lamps to maintain her “bronze-like” appearance!!! Me? Well, phooey, I am just one “Victorian” woman! My aunt used to taunt me, calling me “Lilly-White”. (my mom is a natural redhead…) So, I have the typical redhead tendencies. Namely, burning to a CRISP if exposed to sunlight, and (so undesirable!) freckles!

    I must tell you…looking at that photo sends shivers down my spine! It is a terrific shot. I just have a hard time with such critters. Many years ago, I went to a friend’s home. She had every sort of animal you could imagine…As I was changing my clothes later in the day, a dead chameleon fell to the floor from my blouse. I think I truly came very close to fainting and I still get goosebumps thinking of that bugger being that close to me!!! ewwwww!!!!!!!!

    Far more about me than you ever wanted to know! hehehe!!! Rest assured, if your photo wasn’t so wonderful, I might have forgotten about that colorful incident!!!!!

  2. What a funny thought 🙂

  3. I do visit and I do comment and I was here. I did look at your picture(s) and I did read what you wrote about them. I could say how great you are and how beautiful your work is but alas I would soon run out of things to say on the next blog I visited, so I just left this to prove I stopped and said a few words on Sunday.

    My Rheumatoid Arthritis hurts so I am using the same message for all.

    The tanning salon looks to be doing a roaring trade!
