Texas pride is fun.

Can't tell that joke

 

In Australia Queensland and NewSouthWales pride themselves.

 especially their state's beer.

In NSW, the beer is Foster's.  QLD, it's Castemaine's XXXX

  A gent from NSW asks why they put 4X's on Castlemaine's...  They [Queenslanders] can't spell beer

We appreciate green here... so much that you can get your grass painted green in the winter. 

.... and TucsonTurf is in the artificial turf biz. ... truth

 

was walking from the doghouse and scared a tarantula back into its burrow. Been waiting to see it. We have several "gopher holes" in the yard. We don't have gophers. There is a little topsoil under the grass. Spose that's enough.  Webs in the top of the hole is a tell that someone is home.

tarantula

almost put my hand on one while in death valley. was doing some climbing and the guy next to me kicked my hand out of the way, i looked down and I was about to set it on a tarantula.  Not sure if those ones are venomous; but, definitely ugly.

i grew up around black widows ... they were everywhere. Anytime cleaning the garage or patio, had to carefully pick things up in case there was one under it.

Had one in my long hair once. don’t know how long it was there. Happened on a job site, went back to the shop, we’d hang around and drink a few beers, then i had about a 30 minute drive home. Water from the shower rinsed him out of my head and i screamed when i saw it. My roommate said i was acting like a girl.

I get a new knee in two weeks. I would imagine while I am laid up, I will spend more time here. (confirmed workaholic).

I hope since I will be heavily medicated, all this stuff will/might start making sense.

I tried... Doesn't work. But, you can have fun trying.

Where's my coffee and pipe... maybe I can make some sense of it all. lol

 

How many "likes" can you do in one day? I have a tendency to like everything and everybody when on pain meds. 

I get over it quickly after my stash wears down.

They're always at the creeks here... the cottonmouths that is.

The gators are everywhere in FL because standing water, retention ponds, the drainage ditches with a bridge over them for driveways.

 

Used roundup a lot, but I put a long sleeve lightweight shirt on and wore a respirator or mask and rtfm `cause it's poison. WHO just wants to milk money from a USA company again! If you don't follow the directions you shouldn't be able to f'n sue anybody...  I wore a mask working around asbestos before Reagan turned it into a cash-cow because it's pretty obvious if you bump it you would breathe it!!

Yes and water moccasins, and plenty of non poisonous snakes, deal with probably 8-10 every summer on the front porch alone, non poisonous.

I am not scared of snakes or other bugs and grew up around alligators, had small ones as pets when I was a kid.

 

BUT there not big hairy spiders. It's spiders, just spiders, anything bigger than a really tiny one are a problem.

That's funny, I don't keep track of them. When they first added them here I had no idea not being a phone or on any social media places. I went for 6 months before I realized how to use it and why that number on the top right of the page  on the bell was for.

I do tend to like it because you can somewhat comment on something without making a post, another thing I don't keep up with. I really think the post count thing is messed up, just a guess ?

My great grandmother was bitten by a cottonmouth (also called black moccasin, water moccasin, swamp moccasin).  She went into the kitchen, took down a bottle of whiskey kept there for "purely medicinal reasons," poured some over the wound and also on a butcher knife, cut out the area of the bite, and then had a good slug of the whiskey.  Her great, great granddaughter (my daughter) started a band called Black Moccasin in her honor.

I, too, grew up around black widows.  When my parents disassembled the sand box I played in, there was a nice black widow underneath.

 

My father was a quietly confident man, and of mesomorphic body type ... strong and brave, in my eyes.  One day I saw him bend over and put his mouth under an outdoor water faucet to take a drink.  Suddenly, he leapt up, did a little dance, and spit out a black widow.  No bite.

 

One day, I heard my mother shriek, "Gareeee!"  I ran into the kitchen and caught a snake slithering across the floor.   It was a harmless one, and hung around as a pet for about a year, even accompanying me on vacation.

I have also, but here they are really small, like a dime, I don't know if that is normal or not ?

In the 60's, on the ranch, we were taught to take a razor blade, cut an X across the snake bite and suck out the venom (spitting it out).

never had a rattler strike at me; but, i’ve been within 18 inches of one twice. when i was a kid, i caught one and called the hospital trying to sell them the venom.  They told me that they buy their venom from a lab.  “crap, now what i do with this rattlesnake?"
