For those of you who don't know. I live in Las Vegas. A 100% total desert. Well apparently I live an a particular area of Las Vegas where there is a lare population of Sun Spiders. Now, I get my house spayed every month for pest control and have yet to see one....until now! It was about 9pm, Lucas was fast asleep and I had curled up on the recliner to watch some TV. Out of the corner of my eye I see something running across the floor of my living room...it looked kinda like a mouse out of the corner of my eye. We I get up and go over to see what it is and this is what I see! YEP a GINOURMOUS SUN SPIDER! He was at least 2 inches around and about and inch off the floor as he was running! Totally freaked me out. Lucas is running all over and the thought that that giant spider could have bitten him just scares me to death. Needless to say I couldn't kill it...I was too scared to get close to it. So I called John at work and made him come home. He gets home and sees it through the bowl and says, "ya big baby it's not that big." Until he lifts up the bowl and sees the stupid thing full on! Then he says,"Ok, you may be right...that thing is totally freaky" So he goes in the kitchen and gets a cookie sheet and moves the bowl and smacks it with the cookie sheet so it stuns it. Then he scooped it up with the bowl and threw it in the toilet so we could flush him. I am still having nightmares to this day!! I called the pest people and told them to come out ASAP and spray my whole house. They were very good and came the next morning after I called.
We finally got a doggie door for Tibo. Well, our cute little Asian neighbor Charlie got Tibo a doggie door. She said she noticed we didn't have a door for our dog and she wanted to buy one for us. She said that dogs are like her grandchildren and she loves them so much that she would do anything for them. So she asks us to measure our door and a couple of days later she comes with this! Tibo loves it. He can sleep on the couch and then go out a go potty with out having to tell anyone to let him out! I like it too!
Lucas really enjoyes the door too. He thinks it is a great place to put his toys, remotes, shoes, etc when he is done playing with them. He also learned that he too fits through that little door. We have to be very watchful of what he puts out there. We couln't find the remotes one day and John says,"Did you check outside?" Nope but sure enough there it was sitting ont he patio just outside the doggie door! Way to go Lucas!
Lucas has learned what a Telephone is. He knows that it is something that you hold up to your ear and talk...but what he doesn't know is that not everything can be a phone. Example one--a dinner bowl can not be used as a telephone. He does this with just about everything. The remotes, shoes, random toys, books, you name it he thinks you talk into it. Silly boy!
This last picture is just a super cute picture of my favorite boy! I just love him!!
