Spiders and Snakes …….. Oh My!!!!!!!! L
Our Spider Brown Recluse
Another Picture of our spider
Wink was a little perturbed
when she got home from
Apparently there are eight

Saturday morning I put Frodo
out in the back yard and he found something and was investigating as I was
watching him. He jumped up like he had
been stung on the nose. I went down to
see what stung him. It was a two and a
half foot garter snake. I am pretty sure
it was a garter snake, but it wasn’t as bright as the
We found this guy injured in
the road. We moved it to our bushes, but
it died over night and now it rests in peace in our garbage. I was unable to determine what kind of snake

Wink had quite an adventure
getting Meg and moving her back to
Spirit AeroSystems,where Mark works, had an open house today. It was to celebrate our one year anniversary. They had food, games and the work areas were open to the public. Wink, Meg and Mark went around to see the facilities. Then we played the goofy games. Wink won a hat for Meg. We all had fun.
So we may have a French boy stay with us for a month. We have an interview tomorrow night. If he stays with us, we will convert the quilt room to a temporary bedroom. We moved a bed down last night and Meg slept there to avoid the spiders.
We have a busy week. Meg has Latin M-W-F and driver ed on the weekend. We have to get Meg’s learner permit. Wink has quilt meeting and book club. We have the Sister Cities interview. There is also the spider guy coming. We also have an interview with the lady that will take care of the birds over the fourth of July. And I think there is more that I can’t recall right now.
Oh yeah….. Meg’s computer died
and couldn’t be resurrected. It is still

monitor and we exported the display to the monitor and we could run the
computer that way. They are express

Meg’s old machine is pretty heavy and didn’t perform as well as she desired. So the agreement is that Mark will inherit the old one and we will get a more suitable machine for Meg. Mark needed a computer for when he travels anyway. The old clunker will be fine for him. Meg’s school has a deep discount on Lenovo laptops. We’ll have to figure out which one is more appropriate. We have a choice between a laptop and a tablet pc.
That is enough excitement for me for one weekend.
