The Guardian


Most cars here have a copy of the Quran in the glove compartment and something to ward off evil hanging from the mirror. Anyone who's driven in Cairo will not be the least bit surprised. We have a blue "kaf", or hand of Fatima, but George, the orange and green beaded lizard, is our primary guardian with his big bug eyes on watch for the suicidal/homicidal lunatics who share the road with us.

May George watch over you. :)
He's cute.

Wishing you strength and patience for the recovery period, Maryanne.

I'll have to get myself one of those!
There are suicidal/homicidal lunatics on the road here too.... but maybe not quite so many as in Cairo.

May George continue to do his important work.
