Had To Take A Breather!
Charlotte and Kay! You two have caused me to stop working on the Flower Power Project I've got goin' on! I have the biggest ol' grin on my face and have totally decided that I might as well try out for Old Saint Nick come Christmas the way my belly jiggles when I laugh!
Charlotte Sugar Lamb, I was born and raised right here in The GREAT State of Texas! I was born in the city of Austin and had no idea what I was doing moving to the country 10 years ago, but I did. Gawd he'p me! I have dealt with every thing from finding out that you absolutely must change the sewage field on a regular basis to raising over 100 chicken that I thought I had to have to look like I was a country gent. Move over Martha! I have mowed these acres with an electric push lawn mower because I didn't know better and have seen more road kill than anyone should in a life time. I have run up on snakes and put my manhood aside and screamed like a school girl seeing Justin Bieber for the very first time when one these reptilian suckers fell on my shoulders out of a tree. I have washed and fumigated my basset hounds when they thought the little stripe on the back of the skunk was there for them to play with. Yep, This city boy has become a country boy learning things the hard way! :)
I honestly have seen quite a few of these tarantulas and scorpions since I've been out here. The tarantulas have never really bothered me. I don't bother them they don't bother me. BUT....And I say BUT here....When you decide to toss off those HOT tennis shoes and throw on your UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS Burnt Orange and White Flip Flops or Chunclas as I call them to get comfy, and you get a stung by the tail end of a scorpion, you become just a little wary and anxious. From being this now naturalized country gent, I have learned to keep alert when outside. Heck inside too...you never know what's lurking behind the toilet or underneath a load of clothes! So to be sitting outside on the porch at midnight minding your own business and you spot movement...and you look up and see a black hairy...or as Tara said furry watermelon staring at you right above your head, I don't care who you are, Man, Woman, Boy or Girl...Your body moves like it did when you were 10 years old, leaping across lawn furniture, hurdling flower pots to get to the door of safety. LOL!
The truth is folks...I love living in this awesome State of Texas, City of Granger and County of Williamson and wouldn't give it up for anything! As Kay Said, God Bless Texas!
Where's the Raid Bug Spray!
See you in a bit with my ode to the Partridge Family! LOL!
