    rofl@ Scully!

    Just out of interest Xena do you squidge those things? How? Or do you collect them and sell them to little kids who like to do experiments? We dont get them in England apart from in various shops that import em.

    Good Lord Brummie you are wanting me to catch and ship one of those things to you aren't you??? lol I squash them with whatever is handy at the time! So sorry no go...actually haven't seen in awhile. Used to be kinda freaky though to be cleaning under the bed and find a dead one...and wonder if it was ever in bed with you...

    Hey Scully don't you at least want to come and visit???

    LMAO, you read between the lines en it.

    Actually my sadistic experimental days are over, they have been for at least a month.

    Brummie, you bring back a tragic memory from childhood. I loved all kinds of creatures, big and small. One year I got a bug-catcher as a gift. All I caught was one daddy long-legs. I put in a slice of banana so he would not starve to death. He took an experimental nip, then kept coming back for more. I started to get worried when he began staggering unsteadily on those big wobbly legs. But he kept coming back to that darn banana. Drunk himself to death.

    Drunk daddy long legs sure walk funny.

    My son hated mosquitoes. He would catch them live and toss them in the microwave. He told me they moved REAL FAST just before they died.

    The only thing I ever tortured were fire ants my cousin Billy Joe would have me get kindling and we'd pile it in the hole and light it. Can you say popcorn?
