  9. Gosh Jim, I am glad you are okay. Thought you were just kidding during Laura's show when you said you were stung on your toe by a scorpion. This critter is awful! Gives me the creeps. Thanks for posting the picture (I think):)

  12. See, this is just another reason not to live in Texas! I have successfully lived my whole life without seeing one of those in the wild. We do have brown recluse spiders though. I do see them often at my parents. Uck!!

  13. Bite or sting?? Hope you feel better soon!! I can imagine the pain... I got stung by a sting ray last summer on my big toe. Now that is some serious pain. Remedy - immerse foot in hottest of hot water you can stand. It takes the pain away like magic. Don't know if it works on scorpion stings.

  14. he was only looking for water, see says knowing that she stomps them out. It will not harm you as they are not really serious bites in this part of Texas. thanks for getting rid of captcha i love your pages

  15. Did you call the doc? I think their sting will make you very ill, or worse. Keep your shoes on Jim!

  16. OMG!!! I have no clue about critters like this. All I know is that I would love to live somewhere it's warm 360 days of the year, but would not like to deal with snakes, scorpions, spiders (see that's the next post), etc.I thought it was deadly if you were bit by a scorpion??? I hope you feel better really soon Jim! :-)

  17. Yuk! Hope you aren't seriously hurt Jim and I'm glad that that one won't be bothering you again!

  18. Hi Jim,

    Oh my goodness!!! I was at Laura's show when it happened. All the ladies thought you were kidding at first and then got really worried. You are loved what can I say.
    I am glad that you didn't get bit by that other thing....we won't mention it.
    Hope the toe isn't too bad.
    Big Hugs,

  19. OMG, that's sooooooo weird. I literally just got stung by a scorpion about an hour ago. I pretty much freaked out because even though I live in AZ, I've never been stung before, and like you said, it stings and tingles like the dickens (still does). I even went so far as to call Poison Control just to be safe. At any rate, I sat down at the computer thinking I'd go through my Favorite Blog List to get my mind off of it and I opened up your blog and low and behold I saw a blog posting at the bottom titled "Stung by Scorpion", it was so coincidental and kind of weird. It really does hurt quite a bit. I'm so freaked out too because it was in my bed, under the covers. Even though I've now washed every stitch of bedding, I'm grossed out by the whole thing and I don't want to sleep in my bed. At any rate, your posting gave me some sense of comfort and it seemed to calm me down, thank you for that.
