I took this picture in my kitchen a few minutes ago, right after I finished relocating a scorpion.

I didn’t get any pictures of the scorpion because I was trying not to piss him off.

I assume my visitors wandered in through the back door, which I like to open in the evenings (maybe not so much anymore).

I will now be spending the night researching ways to scorpion-proof my house.  The dragonflies are still welcome, as long as they keep to themselves.

    Should have captured the scorpion and put it on display!

    Yikes! A scorpion? Where in the world are you now?

  4. You relocated the scorpion? If it was me, I would have relocated it to the bottom of a giant book and then to the trash.

  5. And I hate it when there’s a centipede in the house. I’ve always told myself that there is no way I will ever live somewhere that had scorpions or insects big enough to step on me.

    I feel confident that one of the major strengths of my relationship with my wife is that we have compatible phobias (she doesn’t like wasps or larger spiders and I get the willies from centipedes). I don’t know what we’d do if we lived somewhere that had beasties that freaked us both out.

    More power to you.
