Florida Fun!

Hey Neighbors!

Wait until you hear all that we have been doing!  We went bowling again, this time just some of our family!  It was so much fun!  We have eaten out several special places.  The children really enjoyed eating at the Hungry Howies Buffet.  We had a great time.  The water pictures are from down near Sarasota.

We have also visited several Thrift Sores!  I have managed to add a few Boyd's Bears and Cherished Teddies to my collection!

I remember the Spanish Moss from growing up in Florida.  The pony I owned loved to nibble on and play with it.

And of course there are the ever-present lizards.  They are all over!  I remember when our cat used to catch them and bring them to us.  One time she brought a live one inside to play with and the lizard clamped down on her toe and wouldn't let go.  She was flying all over the house trying to get rid of it!

I am also enjoying the hotel stays.  You will hear more in the next few days.  Thank you for being patient with me while we are traveling!  Look for more posts the next couple of days.

The children thought the vehicle above was funny because he was driving around with three huge stuffed animals in his vehicle.  And we had to snap fast to get a picture of the one below as it passed us!

See you soon At the Fence!

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
