Green Acres Not For Me

The beginning of July I got bit by a yellow fly. I had four bites on my left hand -- boy did they itch. The next morning my hand and arm was swollen so I made my way to the immediate care center. A week later with some medication I was better.

Saturday afternoon I thought I would relax in the pool so I put on my hat and got on my raft but I could feel something on my head. I brushed it but still could feel something so I brushed it again. The thing jumped in the pool on my legs -- you have never seen anybody move so fast. I screamed and started running for the stairs with this creature swimming after me. In the water it swam like a snake. Did I mention Jeff and I just watched untamed and uncut on the animal channel where a cobra was on. I was sure it was going to bite me. Jeff came running to my rescue only to find out it was a 3 inch lizard. Geez lost 30 years of my life in a matter of minutes.

Saturday night Jeff and I went to the new house where I watched the sunset from the solana (and got 2 more yellow fly bites). aaahhhh Came home to about 2000 ants crawling on the front of our house. Where did they come from? Jeff nuked them and now our house glows in the dark.Late Sunday afternoon I went out to the pool to do a little exercise and relax. I got in and got out just as fast screaming for Jeff. A snake in my pool. How dare the bugger!!! My hero doesn't like snakes either. He got his shovel and slapped it as it swam -- knocked him silly. I hope it's mother doesn't come looking for us.

Maybe we should be building a condo in the sky.
