Africanized scorpions!

desertstephJuly 22, 2010

the other night dbf told me that when he demolished the 'deck' (piece of rotting wood) behind my trailer he disturbed a nest of scorpions and there were 10's of thousands of them back there.

I told him he'd better come and get them asap. I had an empty coffee can he can put them in and take to his house. He said that wouldn't be enough room for them so I offered to get him more containers. I told him I'd never seen a scorpie in here and didn't want to start now...

He blew it when he told me they were Africanized scorpies, but i didn't let on right away.

what a joker!

when he gets the mfg home here I plan to tell him I can't live in that thing.

it doesn't have a coat closet by the front door. Who in AZ can live w/o a coat closet there?

EEEEKKKKKKKK Steph.That is creepy.

We have had two of these in this house and I have never seen them this large around this country. Does not look that big in the picture but it was well over 4 inches long and 1/4 inch wide. AND FAST!!! I grabbed a shoe and threw it ad him and then took the picture.

Eeeeek to both of you! I've never been stung by a scorpion but heard it really hurts. Have been stung by a centipede and it wasn't that bad. But it was a small one.

there were no scorpies! he was just razzing me.

shades - I don't wanna look at a scorpie - dead or alive!

dbf has scorpies at his house and so does my sister. I've never seen a scorpie at either house. only been to dbf's a few times tho. building or digging up the dirt disturbs their nests. he didn't do any digging out here - he 'imported' more dirt to put on top of my dirt...

Well, being pregnant is not totally out of the question at an advanced age.

Just think about Sara and Abraham.

they were older than I am. I'm at the 'in between age' - the non pregnant time span of life.

but if an angel comes to talk to me, I'll let you all know. Unless I die of a heart attack from what he/she tells me...

after I sue the doctor who 'fixed' me yrs ago. That'll take awhile since he is dead.

Forget suing him. Sell your story to the Enquirer instead!

WHO knew Scorpions would lead to this??? So is the moral of the story . Do not get bit by a scorpion or?? Laughing so hard I am about to bust a gut.
