Christopher went in late today because he had to cook some beans for a cutting (sample tasting). As he was leaving with his beans he casually informs me that there is a dead gecko in the stove.
"I tried to stop him but he ran right under the coil and into the stove. He's probably cooked by now. You'll want to get him out before he starts to stink." then Chris slides out the back door as fast as he can and into the Beetle.
Being that I hate to touch dead animals, even little geckos, I got out the vacuum cleaner. I looked under the burner and as reported there was a crispy little gecko. I took apart the burner and vacuumed him up. What a way to start a day!
