2016.1202 Dangling Wire

There's a low hanging wire dangling across the front of my lawn and across the driveway. I called Verizon and warned them about the danger. The soonest they say they can get here is Sunday at 11:00 AM. I put out lawn chairs and a yellow tape running parallel to the wire.

2016.0917 Ugly Bug

I was in the garage still cleaning up after the party. I'd just put away the extension cord when I noticed this monsterous sized bug. I observed it close up 'cause it looked like the decayed skeleton of a strange looking bug. Then, I went in the house to get my camera. When I came back out to shoot the photo, it had moved. YIPES! This thing was not dead. I took a quick photo and went back in the house to get the deadliest bug spray I could find. Then, back to the garage and (from a safe distance), I sprayed the life out of it.
