Friday Critter Blogging

We've been seeing these frequently. I never gave them much thought because I just thought they were a piece of wood that fell off the rotting patio table, or a piece of tree bark.

One day txrad said he saw one move and thought it was some kind of bug. I went out to look and it was completely stationary. I even flipped it over and nothing happened. Then a few minutes later we went out and it was a couple of inches from where we had seen it earlier. txrad insisted it had moved and I said it might have just been moved by the wind.

Then this week I walked outside and saw one in motion. And what's really freaky is that it actually has a head like a tiny little snake that emerges from that piece of "wood" and drags itself around I suppose.

Texas might get the award for the most interesting critters I've ever observed.

Anyone have any idea what this is called?

How Sick Is This?

Giving basil some water prior to going on top of a pizza is like that sterile swab they do on the death row inmates' arms prior to the lethal injection, is it not? Wouldn't want to give them an infection moments before we kill them!

Last meal for the deceased!

A Pair of Walking Sticks

I saw these two on the patio wall this morning. They stayed there all day. I don't recall ever seeing two together.
