Bob and the scorpion


Bob came out of the backyard jungle holding this in his fingers like this and yelling ....

"look It's a scorpion!"

I yelled "What? a SCORPION? In our yard?"

From across the pool, it did look like a scorpion..


But Bob loves me so much, one  day he put on a cologne  that smells like a computer.-
Seems that is the only way to get my attention these days... that and a fake scorpion



* IT is  Something dead from our jungle, who knows what it is, but he scared me silly and it really does look like one,

Doesn't it. TexWisGirl, doesn't it?

Oh my you have a guy like mine. He is too is up with prangs

I always tell him. When one yells fire for real. I will think it is a prank naughty man.


Glad you back sweetie girly.

Your Bob is quite a joker! Hope you've recovered from the scare as I don't think you need the exercise of jumping in fright and running around the pool right now! Sending love and calming thoughts, Sandra.

I think your Hubby and mine could be related!
that's the kind of thing he would do too.
I love your Eu Du Computer....

Blackberry Lane said...

It really did look like a scorpion!

Ginny said...

Of course I would have screamed and run!!! Is there REALLY a perfume like that? He is very romantic to do that, where on earth did he find it? I am SO glad you are not infested with scorpions!!

Rebecca said...

Hee hee.

...the humor of this post is outstanding. A cologne the scent of a computer. Riotous.

Cranberry Morning said...

Mersad said...

Yikes! That would have had me running away.

DeniseinVA said...

Your hubby has a great sense of humor, and a little bit of a mischievous side :)

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Yep, I would think it's a scorpion from a distance! That Bob...he will do anything for attention. LOL!! You two have a lot of fun, don't you? We do too, but I won't tell BG about the scorpion trick.

Deb said...

well that will get your attention...I remember growing up we always checked our shoes before putting them on...that's where they liked to hide...my brother got stung by one on his big toe...he was running around the house yelling I'm dead Ima dying...I'm dead Ima dying...my Mom had to tackle him to find out what was wrong...then he told her a scorpion got his big toe...that goodness it just got red and swole up...my brother thought he was gonna die..he was 6 or 7...

barbara l. hale said...

LOL! I think that Greg needs to get some cologne that smells like a camera or a baseball...then, we might be in business. Hoping you are feeling good these days!

Ann said...

I'm thinking that you and Bob have got to be more fun than a barrel full of monkeys. I can see how that would look like a scorpion from far away.
Wade would need a cologne that smells like hot glue....lol

Maggie M said...

That sounds like something my son would do. I bet it did look like a scorpion from across the pool. How funny about the cologne scented like a computer. lol Hugs and hope you are getting better and better.

Montanagirl said...

Oh my gosh! I'd have had a heart attack!! I want nothing to do with Scorpions!! LOL

Debby@Just Breathe said...

You two are so cute together!!!

SquirrelQueen said...

Bob is such a card. Maybe from across the pool but otherwise it could be stretching it a bit. Scorpions are sneaky, they like to hide in dark places, under rocks and in shoes. Fortunately I've only run across small ones.

George said...

I'm beginning to think that Bob likes to live dangerously.

SweetMarie said...

I would have been freaking out! lol
Hope you're feeling better!
hugs to you all!

Terri @ Backward B Ranch said...

Well my eyes are pretty bad even close up it does resemble something hairy and scary! I think your Bob sounds like a funny guy! I'm glad you are feeling better!

Madi and Mom said...

BOB IS SUCH A CHARMER AND WISE HE KNOWS HOW TO GET HIS GALS ATTENTION.
MOM THINKS IT LOOKS LIKE SMALL DRIED TOBACCO LEAVES
HUGS MADI AND MOM

Gail said...

Is Bob alive...still?

I like your shadow.

I'm a Scorpio and am terrified of scorpions.

Ida said...

What a prankster Bob is. I bet from a distance it did look like a Scorpion. Thank goodness it was just dried up plant material.

Dee said...

EEK....LOL

Dee said...

I forgot to add I am glad your shoulder is better....I forgot to tell you after seeing the fake scorpion LOL

Linda said...

You two are so funny!!! Louis Dean is the same way.....he is an elctronic widow - he says....

Chatty Crone said...

Girl you better start paying attention to him before he gets a real one!
