things i didn't see in New York...

I used my PhD (post hole digger) to clear the mud out of the holes Rabbit dug on Sunday and then tamped in all 20 Black Locust split rails for the perimeter fence. Being new to installing fences, I had to be counselled on using the chainsaw before or after burying the rails to make them all the same length... it's after! And no one seems to feel comfortable with me using the chainsaw by myself! So the rails wait to be trimmed down.


So yes, I screamed like a girl when I flipped over a rail and found this black widow underneath....


and also when I found this one under another... this one was much bigger than the first and I ended up smushing them out of fear of them biting some one or Bandit, who likes to mess with bugs.


I have no idea what this lizard guy is, but he seems to have made his home under the stoop stone! I don't think he bites!

You "smushed" them? That's hilarious!
