They are everywhere! Critters!!
This morning Vince went out and then came back in and said “get your camera”. I never know what that may mean.
Don’t ask me why we have about 60 of these blue buckets sitting out by the carport . . some of them were used to cover tomatoes from frost but Vince kept buying them. Oh . . I think it has something to do with the way he’s setting the irrigation system up for the fruit trees . . I’m not sure.
Day before yesterday, it was so humid when we got up that water was dripping off the metal roof of the shop. It doesn’t have gutters so I lined some buckets up to catch the water and . . in this bucket of water was a toad. We so rarely see frogs or toads around here.
I don’t think he was able to get out of the bucket on his own so Vince rescued him. Vince asked me if I wanted to kiss him. After the discussion we had this morning . . maybe!! 🙂
Speaking of critters, I wish you could have seen Vince last night! Just about dusk, he decided he wanted a pizza. We can’t get delivery out here so he debated about what to do. I wasn’t even hungry because we had a late lunch but he was determined he had to have a pizza so we went to Domino’s. Vince walked out the door ahead of me and I was doing something and not paying a whole lot of attention. He still hasn’t learned that you dump your shoes and bang them on the concrete several times before sticking your foot in. We leave our shoes on the back porch and I mostly wear flip flops because I can see if there’s a critter in my shoes.
Vince put his Crocs on, took about 2 steps and did some kind of dance, acrobatic act . . his shoe went flying across the yard but not before some kind of spider that was about as big as an bantam egg came out of the shoe. Vince stuck his foot in there with that spider and when the spider moved . . it scared the heck out of Vince. I guess it would scare anyone! I’m thinking he’ll be checking his shoes before he puts them on now. He said it was a spider that doesn’t bite .. not even sure what it was but it was big and he’s lucky it wasn’t a Black Widow or Brown Recluse. Maybe the spider in his shoe is what precipitated that conversation we had this morning! 🙁
