frog jumping part deux

September 7, 2015 at 9:49 pm (Uncategorized)

our new house sits out in an area that, although it is only blocks from our other house, had been left to go wild.  when we bought the other house the economy was just months from a big down turn in the economy. as a result, the land where this house sits, this property was allowed to go back to nature.

my man is a nature lover.  my sister and i love nature.  we love the earth and do what we can to honor her.  however, my sister and i draw a line when it comes to bugs and spiders that look like they could attack us.  we do not believe these critters belong inside or on the door which we feel suggests their intent to enter the house.  he uses a glass inverted to pick up intruders only to set them free outside the door.  we use magazines (not to be read), newspapers and on rare occasions a shoe.

this is relevant, trust me, to this story.  as i said in the last post ang and i were discussing which frog would cross the finish line first.  out of the blue she says it’s going to be a spider bite!  i said it would be a brown recluse.  so that is how it all ends my friends, i get bitten by a brown recluse spider,

    Just reading this gave me a “frog” in my throat! I don’t blame you for avoiding spiders. That’s why this is posted on the “Web.”

    You are truly an amazing woman….not allowing your diagnosis to dictate your character or to dim your bright, funny, loving spirit. I love you and I’m so glad to be here and have this time with you.

    I saw this on Facebook and thought it was a great and natural way to eliminate a big problem and fear!!

    I’m in agreement about the bugs, as long as they stay outside, I’m cool. I think I’ll keep some peppermint around, just to be safe.
