    Nah, my kids have a silly song sing-along DVD and it's usta (Polish for "mouth" or "lips" - just looked it up )
    One of these days I'll stop being sensitive. Until then, I'll continue to be devastated on a daily basis. Life breaks my heart.

    MRD, ok, when we move into the retirement home, you can be in charge of bug and snake removal. I can take care of the frogs (because I kinda like them-I had a pet tree frog named Pee Creek when I was lots younger). Someone will have to bring the hair spray for the spiders and creepy-crawlies. Wouldn't that be something if there was a way to keep the fuglies away?

    Someone else will have to take care of any mice. Because really I lose all reason if I see one... I will take care of any bugs/spiders though..or even snakes.
    I very much believe in rescuing animals, not buying them.

    It sounds like you're describing a silverfish. I agree. They are totally revolting.

    I was going to say that it sounded like a house centipede...

    They are harmless, but seriously disturbing to look at. We don't get many, maybe one every few years.

    It's funny how we all have our own "thing" when it comes to creatures. Most bugs, snakes, frogs, etc don't bother me much. I even kept snakes as pets when I was a teen. However, I have a serious problem with spiders. Little itty-bitty ones are fine, but around here we get some rather large spiders and they are just gross. We particularly get cellar spiders in our basement and they are light tan and you don't really notice them until they are enormous!! By "scientific" standards they aren't big because they have small bodies but they have a huge leg span. I vacuum those suckers when I see them. It is giving me the heebie-jeebies just thinking about it!!!

    What is that nasty critter that we see every several years (maybe 7?) that comes in the spring/summer and sheds its shell and is then green and wet looking? You see their full shells on trees and other places; we used to like to collect them when I was a kid, but they were still creepy looking. I could have sworn that I've seen a shell in my yard this spring, but I'm thinking that may have been my imagination kicking in.

    Are you talking about cicadas? I don't know if they shead their shell or not but they are huge and have kind of an army decor on their body with big wings and make beautiful cirping noises during the summer. We used to catch them and play with them when we were kids. They are a little bit smaller then a fun sized snickers.

    I read that they are earlier due to the weather changes. I like the sound of them, though.

    Yes! That's it. I instantly recoiled just looking at the picture. I want him out of my house and he better take all of his friends and family members.
