Take care.
Does he look anything like this?

It is a truly sleazy company.

Sort of apropos isn't it? A lizard being a spokesperson for the insurance industry. They had to have an English voice, one can't have a red blooded American misrepresenting the company that works for you.....

Sometimes I think that the company is just having a laugh at the consumers expence.

Other than that, I like your pics Steven...

In some ways it's better than the commercials by the bank that wants me to get their credit card because they have marauding vikings on their payroll.

Dunno, you took yours from the wrong side

Here's the best I've been able to do so far (not really good at all). I think the foot is similar, with the claws.
