<quoted text> God answered my prayer today !!!!
God is real !!!!
For the last 3 weeks I have been dreading something I have ( had) to do tomorrow night. I have been beside myself with worry. I just didn't want to go there , but I just have ( had ) to go.
Well, when I woke up today tomorrow night came straight to my mind , " one more sleep" I thought.
" if only I could have a excuse, as in a really good excuse"
Fast forward 4 hours and my prayers have been answered. I have nearly sliced my finger off in a guillotine at work. 30 yrs of experience and never had a accident at work until today.
Careful what you wish for / put out there !!!
Truthfully, this is a bad injury but the outcome is worth it.
God ( energy ) works in mysterious ways.
Life never gets boring.
Something is always looking after me, but sometimes you need a little bit of pain to get the result you are after.
No pain, no gain. Life really is an emotional roller coaster.
The more I worry about a certain thing, the better the outcome.
Go figure.
Me think the drugs have kicked in.
It sounds like you really and truly weren't looking forward to the event.

Worry is something that I have gotten away from in later years. Can't say it has helped me much in previous years.

But there is something running us other than us. Had plenty of experience with that.

Don't always get what you want, but often what you need.

Pain makes life much richer. When you can look back at it. Not so rich when you are in it.

Those suckers were big. Four or five inches from where the tail curved upwards to the claw tips. Only place I have ever seen those. Found some still around in a out building 40 years later.
There were some bug sprays you could use as a flamethrower holding a match in front. If I caught them outside they were toast. Oh, the delights of youth.
Were you wearing some lotion or perfume when the wasp chased you? They tend to like nectars. Be their friend and hang a hummingbird feeder for them.
I have two hummingbird feeders...that one seemed to like me better...and nope...no lotions or perfumes...just got out of the pool. Darndest thing I ever seen.

True, they are teaching us something, that something is " to fear". We are material beings who are not eternal in this form. Things like spiders snakes and sharks are there to keep our egos in check.

"Fear not" and see how long you last.
Life is fear driven for a reason.
Respect.

We had something even worse in Miami. Land crabs. Big gray crabs with pincers by the thousands in some places. Run over them and you could get a flat.
I've personally never had crabs.

But I see you have.

Let them have their way with you. I have yellowjackets landing on me quite often. Unless you are a threat to a nest or swatting at them they have no reason to sting you. You aren't on their diet. They are looking for moisture or sweet stuff.
Chlorinated pool water I guess...<throws hands up> who knows?

The first time I saw a herd of tarantulas crossing a country road I stopped and opened the door to get a good look and make sure I wasn't hallucinating. It was THAT surreal. Talk about creepy.
Not this girl...I'd have put the pedal to the floor...I swear I'm arachnophobic...I'd have had a heart attack!

22's are pretty good. Corner them and shoot at their head. They tend to kiss the bullet by striking at it.

As far as your yard goes, finely broken glass on the perimeter a foot or so will help. They don't like slithering over sharp stuff. They used to use broken oyster shells around the New Orleans airport to reduce the snakes on the runways.

You have to get the snakes out of the yard for it to do much good. Look for snake holes.

Never tried it, but my father was an old Canadian farm boy who relayed some lore about snakes to me. He said you put a stake in the ground and tap it, and the snakes will come to it. Hoop snakes were also part of his lore.:-)

I do know out in the desert snakes can feel you walking and try to get out of the way.

Mating season is the worst time for snakes. That is when they get on the move.

I totally agree.
"Something is running us"
And true, " Don't always get what you want, but often what you need". Nice :)

You cannot beat a saltwater pool.
But that attracts the salt water crocs.
You just cannot win in this material form. Oh well.

They are at their prettiest when they have their legs folded under them. Laying there all nice and still and pretty. I encourage them to do that. I have a special perfume for them.

<quoted text>Wasps are evil. Unlike bees, that can only sting once, a single wasp can sting several times and come back again for more.
But, if you leave them alone, chances are they won't bother you. I've put this to the test. I have wasp nests all around my property, and we have a working relationship.

Why would you hate those things? They're quite beautiful. Don't you mean you're just afraid of them?

well...as much as I hate them..the big black and yellow garden spiders do have neat looking webs...with the spiral down the middle. We had one a couple years ago that had a huge web on my front porch. Thankfully it was att the end of the porch and out of the way. For some reason...I refused to let my husband tear that web down. It was pretty awesome...and I actually called that spider Charlotte...she hung out for awhile..Lol. I did, however, keep my distance.

<quoted text>Thanks for the nightmare material, and goodnight.
I forgot to tell you about the clacking and chittering as a hundred of them scuttle across the road. Claws up in the air if you are near them. Scary sound and scary sight.

There was a good sci fi book about a very old planet with billions of years of evolution and many species turned to working in groups like bees do. One of them were crabs with razor sharp claws. They would attack en masse, claws reaching to shred their target. No retreat, they would just keep coming by the thousands. Got one of the characters in the novel. He made a mistake and got out of his vehicle to look at something.

Sweet dreams.
