Scorpion Scare

3d scorpion postcard

144 miles on my new 2.2L Wasserboxer engine – so far, so good! Stopped in the gas station in Independence on 395 and this really caught my eye. I call it immersion therapy for “scorpion-phobia.” (Arachnophobia to be precise, since scorpions are arachnids, but I’m not scared at all of spiders.) I made a tag for the “Scorpion incident:” puppys scorpion sting

This 3D postcard calls this scorpion an Arizona bark scorpion but I know better. Of course I might be wrong, but of >1500 types of scorpion, I think this is a regular Arizona Desert Scorpion – the kind you HOPE you get stung by (instead of the awful, tiny Bark Scorpion) if you’re going to get stung at all. Don’t.

Oh hey all you scorpios out there πŸ˜‰πŸ‘‹πŸΌπŸ‘‹πŸΌ In other stupid news today I lost my van in a small Bishop parking lot behind a HUGE suburban type truck and had the worst panic! I looked where I had parked it twice. It was gone! I was just ready to call 9-1-1 (really!) when I turned around again and saw my little van hiding between two large trucks. Im glad I didn’t make a scene – but I was close!! OK I’m going to go change my diaper now. 🚨
