A visitor to my home office

Post by Bloodhound » Wed Jun 02, 2021 3:36 pm

My home office that I am in 3 or 4 days a week(downtown those other days), is in the unfinished basement / Man Cave. I have a desk in the corner and its comfy even though its not fancy.

Well I had just come in from smoking a pipe and drinking some coffee on the patio and was re connecting my lap top to the docking station when I noticed movement on one of the many papers on my desk. When I focused on it, this is what I saw...

While I am not freaked out by spyders...this looked a lot like a brown recluse...and they can cause problems if they bite...so the little beasty did not survive the encounter...

In the case of spiders, I suspect God delegates the sorting to an underling.
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not.

Many years ago, I had a similar visitor. There was a pigmy rattlesnake between the glass door and the screen door. My brother wanted to check it out in our snake book. I said, "OK, but only after I kill it!"

There are many terrible attributes of the lowly cob. Not the least of them is that it makes you look like a doof.

Nasty of nasties. Recluses can cause tissue and muscle destruction leaving terrible scars.
