Bugs? I once ate a large grasshopper (live) in front of a group while discussing survival in the wild. Grown men got up and left the room.

Spiders? My size 13EEEE boot ain't scared of no spiders . . .

Someday I'll tell you 'bout swallowin' one dozen goldfish outa my buddy's aquarium

(oh, . . and earthworms? Taste like . . . earth.)

Spiders and crabs are anthropodes, as are shrimp, lobster and crayfish. Except for spiders they are all scavengers, eating the crud that falls to the bottom of the ocean, lake or stream where they reside. The spiders diet is less disgusting but I'll take lobster first any day.

I may be pretty dense, but what the heck is a round heeled woman?

RoeDapple 6 years ago

Well heeled women would be okay though?

RoeDapple: Not being picky, and I make enough errors myself; but I think you mean "arthropods" and not "anthropodes" in your 3:36 posting!

RoeDapple 6 years ago

You're right blindrabbit. Although I am awake roughly 21 hours per day (most days) there is somewhat of a fog I operate in during the wee hours of the morning!

If your not, you should be. Law Enforcement is placing bugs in homes and automobiles at will these days. They say "whatever it takes", even if it means violating the very civil-rights they have sworn to protect. It's a sad situation that needs swift corrective action.

We get these funny little bugs, sort of like termites that somehow get into the basement. I am not afraid of them, but don't like them in my house.. But it is mighty cold out here, 19*below C.this am, so I am reluctant to put them outside, so I just flush them down the terlet.

Was your channel changer not working?

you know, it is good to be back here and see that some of old posters are still around, but some I don't see. And yes we are now enjoying TV in vivid colour (note Can. spelling) But the other day I did see a Perry Mason in black and white. Can you tell me what is the name of that coffee house on Mass. St. can't remember, but do remember the great times I had there meeting some of the OTS posters.

Today I saw a shampoo that is suppose to repel head lice, wonder if it comes with a money back guarantee if it doesn't work.

Spiders are simple creatures that really are not scary if you learn how they behave. I have two pet tarantulas. They're beautiful, but don't do much. They're totally instinctual. You vibrate something near them and they move...that's about all there is to it. I used to be terrified of bugs, but having to feed a large spider other smaller insects really squashed that fear!

Bugs don't bother me but I don't like rattlesnakes & copperheads. They bother and distract me during the mushroom season.
