Pretty spider. Don't know how Widows are for pest control and whether they're worth keeping around though.

Widows are on the not-welcome list pretty much everywhere. As far as the whole spider thing goes though... unless you live in the extreme northern or southern latitudes you will always be within six feet of a spider.your entire life no matter where you are.

I am not afraid of spiders ( Princess always called me Hands of Steel) but terrified of snakes. Can't move nearly as fast as a snake....

It's been a long four weeks for me. Been working most 10-12 hour days for the past 3.5 weeks. Glad it's over and I can almost get back to normal.

Ahh.... now it's time to upgrade the wife's van. It's been a good egg but it's getting a little long in the tooth. That and she's been wanting to get out of the mommie-van thing and back into a crossover/suv thing. I prefer the truck based ones and she wants something a little lighter and more car like, but still has some better visibility and can haul small stuff around.

At least it's not the holy-crap-it's-gotta-be-done-real-fast like it was with the truck so we can leisurely go kick some tires.

Cars....my car had weird electrical problems today, so weird, all I could think was, alternator issue. So I call Anakin. He comes home, I give him the symptoms. He goes out, lifts the hood and says, Honey, I know what it is... Chipmunks. Chipmunks has started building a nest on top of the engine and CHEWED three alternator wires! The Royal Household is now at WAR! Fortunately Anakin was able to splice the wires - great being married to an engineering major!

That entire neighborhood has been at war with chipmunk's since as long as I can remember. As much as some people will hate the idea... a mouse trap with peanut butter my be one of the better solutions.

My cat is a serial killer. We have no chipmunks. He beheaded one in front of my kids once. It was an interesting lesson in life on the little Serengeti.

Life outside the walls is far more dramatic than it typically is inside. We see all kinds of things going on outside. I wish there was more sometimes though.

Had a bit of excitement at the house today. My wife was home by herself and had just got undressed to get in the shower. The doorbell rang, so she threw some clothes on, nobody at the door. Across the house to my sons room she goes and spots a black truck in the driveway and a guy heading around the back. This is a common tactic, ring the bell, if nobody answers the house is empty. So I guess the guy was about to open the screen door when my wife heads out to the porch with gun in hand wanting to know who he was, what he wanted, etc. He was pretty startled and mumbled something about being an Electrician and took off. Too bad she didn't get a plate number. She's okay that's fine.

If he indeed was an electrician on a bona fide electrical task-

.he would have immediately provided authentic and verifiable ID.

I trust you have filed a report with the police?

The Mrs. is knowledgeable of and trained in the 21 foot rule?

Next time, might I suggest. if possible,  videoing the lead up on the cell phone before challenging, and-

.do not open the door, particularly the back door.

There are a lot of "handy folk" around here that don't have decals on their vehicles or uniforms as such.

She opted not to.

The Mrs. is knowledgeable of and trained in the 21 foot rule?

Yes (she did not have a holster on her person either), so weapon drawn.

Next time, might I suggest. if possible,  videoing the lead up on the cell phone before challenging, and-

Preparing a video was not an option. Especially seeing as how she was in state of undress when this whole thing began.

.do not open the door, particularly the back door.

The door opened was a triple slider. The individual was opening the screen door to the pool cage when the slider was opened. There is a distance of about 20 feet with a table in between.

The door should not have been opened really. Did she respond perfectly? Probably not, but she made reasonable judgement calls. and did not take any bad risks.
