about hurting your purple's feelings, Patricia.  Wasn't thinking!  

That phrase was my sister's favorite, and I used it once in a while.

Oh, you don't need that Daniel! Hope you get to see the doctor right away.

I hate spider bites, used to get them regularly as a kid when we lived at the coast.

Aw Spud, don't hurt my purple's feelings...... hahahaha!!!!

In the 25 years I've lived here, I've only seen one black widow in my house, and it was shortly after moving in.  

I see many spiders that look like the brown recluse, but from my research, I'm fairly certain that they're not.  I've read that you have to use a microscope to tell the difference.  I'm sure hobos don't live here,  and probably not the brown recluse either.

I've never been bitten.

Daniel, I had a spider bite a call years ago. I got it on my stomach when I was spreading straw on the yard. It never hurt but starting raising a large lump that was red and angry. The dr offered to lance it but by then it was ready to start draining on its own. And it did. For two weeks. Now there's just a small dark spot where it was. I have no idea what kind of spider it was and never felt the bite. I was lucky. We have brown recluse, black widow and several others. When I was reading about them I found that most spiders have venom for prey but are only mildly dangerous to most humans.

Somewhere I read that before the federally instituted time change, each state and community decided on their own time zone.  Interesting to think about.  I had a hard time driving to work in dark in am, and home again in dark in pm.  At least not doing that now.  I read there is a movement to eliminate DST but not a major priority.

I think I got a spider bite on my leg.  Ugly big bruise with central clearing and 2 tiny punctures in center.  Now some raised pink areas growing.  Infection?  Trying to get in to dr appt today.  Not sure if from yard or house or wood pile.  No brown recluse spiders in maritime NW, but there are some black widows and something called a hobo spider.  Apparently hobo spuders are an import from Europe and their toxicity is not well described.

Burpee has some beautiful looking zinnias.  From my experiment this year, deer dont eat them  and they dont need much water.  I want to try some tall marigolds, deer dont eat them either.  But not crazy about orange round flower balls.

Being more positive, I'd like to live in the part of Arizona that's warm (and has no time change :)

Oops, sorry for being so negative, Daniel.  

Comment by Idaho Spud on November 6, 2017 at 8:14am

I hate the damn time change thing also.  Hate it with a purple-passion!

Horses are gorgeous & fascinating to watch. I also like to watch cattle....so peaceful.

I'm with you, Kathy. I wish they'd quit this damn time change thing too. The older I get, the more I hate it.

Joan we still have green grass and flowers here north of Philly, though half of the trees have turned color. Yesterday was in the low 70's. That's what being south of a deep jet stream curve gets you, warm air flow from the south. Haven't even had a hard frost yet.
