Ransom was paid to retrive Don Dedos yesterday by Chris. "I just happened to look outside when I saw these two guys with slingshot bend over and pick up an Iguana. I watched them carry him by his tail down the street. I didnt even think it might be Dedos."
The boys had made it down to the corner before Chris decided to call after them and ask how much they wanted for the Iguana. They thought it was kinda odd a gringo wanted to eat him. After weighing the iguana by carefull guess work, lifting and lowering him - the ransom was agreed to be $10.00 pesos.
"It was then, when I was holding him I thought it could be Dedos. Hes fatter than most, for all the fruit he is feed at his lunch counter. I forget he actually goes outside the Quinta from time to time."
He was returned to the tree and immediately went into his hiding spot. Today seeing him at his normal perch with the wound on his neck and hind side confirms that it was Dedos after all.
"I am so pleased I happened to look out the window just then. We would have never known what happened to him"
