I've been thinking about doing a blog post sharing the creatures that we have had visit us since we've moved out of the city and into the country. Some are happy and cheerful and fun. Some are definitely not. I think I did this on my other blog that was deleted. It mostly featured bugs, spiders and the like. We have more than bugs though. It's always an adventure to see what I run across. And I am so not a country girl. Even after almost 4 years.

Thank God I'm a country girl....and not afraid of big, big bugs!
How many of you remember John Denver's song, Thank God I'm A Country Boy? Well, today when I was beating on this big, big, big (8 inches) Texas redheaded centipede that was on my back porch, this song was ringing in my ears. And I started laughing and kept beating (after having taken a picture to text to my husband, of course)! Sadly, that centipede is no more. In case you wonder, these centipedes can not only sting you with the fangs by their heads, but also with their legs. You can listen to the song first and then you can see my icky bug.
