Clacker Mystery Solved

Remember this fabulous little toy?

I'm thinking it must have been cool in the late 80s early 90s because I was at the place where it hadn't quite reached annoying status.  It was just a fun little toy to play with when you were bored. 

Now I would consider it annoying!  How do I know this?  Well, for the last three years I have heard this clacking sound in my apartment.  I always thought that it was coming from outside in the trees and so I assumed it was a bird.  I began to wonder why God thought that the clacking sound was a cool sound for a bird because I wasn't feeling it.

Enter the days of poor to no internet access chez moi (this would be for approximately the last three months).  At the worst of times, I've been driven out into our little office library to connect my computer to the landline there hoping  for internet that moves a little faster than a snail's pace. 

It's here that the clacker mystery has been solved.
It's not the delightful call of a bird but rather the clacking of a gecko.  It's loud for such a little creature! I can hear the sound coming from behind the books and I know geckos are the only ones roaming around back there. 

I'm still wondering why God thought it was a cool sound to give them but I'm glad to have the mystery solved!
