What Do Komodo Dragons and Henry Ford Have in Common? Dream Big

Well, to be honest not an awful lot, I researched for hours (okay, it was maybe minutes) and couldn’t find one reference to the famous Mr. F and the lizard population. But let's see what we can find.....


Lizard


Here in Florida, our lizards are not very big; maybe 5-6 inches.  I have seen bigger ones around about 8 inches long and heavier in the body than our little green Anoles but I'm not sure what they are called.

I think this little guy watching me through my window was wishing and hoping to turn into the Komodo Dragon that I saw at Animal Kingdom in Disney World Orlando.


Komodo Dragon

Komodos can reach 10ft in length and weigh in at 300 pounds or more. That's a serious Biggest Loser Contender but I'm not telling him. Komodos have poor eyesight and hearing but a serious sense of smell: so stay upwind if you encounter one in the neighborhood.


Never ever forget to dream big. You may not reach monster size but the bigger you dream-the closer you get to your goals.

Segue back to Henry Ford: As Henry said, If you think you can do a thing or think you can’t do a thing, you’re right.

Toni... I always enjoy stopping by to hear what you have to say. Your photo stories are always so refreshing and very good to read. I just love lizzards too! That fascinate me. I never chase them away here in Texas.

You've got some great photos and lizzards out your way.

Heather - how did he do playing golf? I like them too, they are cute and they re-purpose insects :)

Belinda - you are too kind saying I tied them all together :) It was a stretch (get it).

John - :) thanks.

Larry and Sheila - I did have a beautiful sunny day. Thank you.

Kristin - the lizards are just hibernating in the winter; they find someplace warm and you don't see them. Glad you found him again.

Jennifer - that's true. I sure wouldn't want one wandering around my yard.

Myrl - great minds, etc. Me either!!

Dale - thank you for the feature in Wild Wednesday!

Leilani - I love that commercial too! I'm always in favor of the littlest thinking they can be as big as the biggest.

Patricia - I think you and I just love all living creatures. Thank you!

Toni, stunning photos, as usual! And your title definitely caught my interest, too. I love the tie-in with the inspirational quote by Ford. Yes, we can!

The little lizard is cute but reptiles lose their charm for me way before 300 lbs.
