The Bee Hive

Sometimes it's honey; sometimes it's sting...

This is what I found in my bathroom sink late the other night. It was a really big one. Sorry for the blurry quality of the photo, but I only took one, before getting rid of it before it got away from me. Previously, the last one I had seen was about a year and a half ago, when Coconut found a medium sized one that apparently came out of the computer room closet. Everyone has been talking about how prevelant they are this year. That was a big part of the pre-parish council meeting talk last week, where over half of the people there had encountered quite a few of them recently.
Note that scorpions have 8 legs, making them arachnids. I hadn't thought of or realized that before. Not that they look exactly like the one on my lotto card shower curtain... I had thought that was just artistic license.

Yikes, indeed!! When we lived by the lake, we would find them off and on. Thank goodness, none since we moved to the city

And that's why I'll never live in Texas.
