Comments: Florida Families

Ah - Palmetto Bugs. Can't stand them. Have seen them on vacations in the Caribbean and FL. My opinion is that they are leftovers from the Jurassic Period, left here to remind us of our insignificance. They are the size of Pterodactyls and scarier.

Now that the comments are working again... palmetto bugs freak me out to the extent that all I hear is screaming... and suddenly I'm across the room.

It's because they fly at you. In the face. Ack!

She called me last night that she had her first kill. I said, "You are a better woman than me. Did you remove the body?" There was a stillness on the phone and then she said, "No. I called you. I figured... Let me call Aunt Bou and see if I can't procrastinate enough that maybe I'll find the courage to actually get rid of the dead body..."

She was so dang funny. She said peppermint oil kills them. She has some environmentally friendly insecticide. She's an environmentalist. (She voted on the economy...)
