I already have half a case with your name on it.

hey this is a FORUM not a chat room!
10 July 2008 at 7:03 a.m.

Hello. I'm new to town & I was wondering if there are scorpions in the area. I was thinking of going out one night to look for some, but I am not even sure if there are any around. I thought on top of the bluff where the radio towers are might be good due to the sandy area. Has anyone seen any or know of any good spots (even surrounding areas) to find some?
9 July 2008 at 9:15 p.m.
I've lived here all my life and never seen one. Doesn't mean there isn't any but I've never seen one….something bit my hind end today though, but i don't think it was a scorpion.
9 July 2008 at 9:21 p.m.
redneckgirl—If it was a scorpion, you'd be in the hospital by now. There is no anti-venom for them and they make you extremely sick. No, there are no scorpions here-thank God. When we moved to Arizona, we found lots of them. They are to be avoided at all costs.
9 July 2008 at 9:28 p.m.
Yeah…sorry Granny, it was a joke - one of those “you had to be there” types of things. But I guess that's a good thing, I don't have time to be hanging out at the hospital. You know what I used to see a lot here when i was a kid were those mud puppy things, (?) the salamander with the big head. I haven't seen one of those in a long time.
9 July 2008 at 10:37 p.m.
do tell redneckgirl. Did you ever figure out what bit you on the butt?
9 July 2008 at 10:42 p.m.
It's a secret—and yes, I think I am pretty sure what bit me. If it gets worse I might have to have it checked out. Now, lets get back to the topic as I'm sure nobody here wants to hear about my hiney.
9 July 2008 at 11:09 p.m.
redneckgirl, is that what bit you on the hiney??? lol
9 July 2008 at 11:15 p.m.
There is indeed one species of scorpion in and around Craig, but they're fairly reclusive and rare. My folks live across from the Sand Rocks on E 10th and my brother and I used to go up there looking for Black Widow spiders. Flip over a few flat rocks up there and occasionally you'll find a striped bark scorpion or two. Their sting is usually no worse than a bee's, but if you're allergic to bees a sting from one of them could have serious consequences.
You're more likely to come across Black Widows. Craig is crawling with 'em. My brother and I went hunting for them one day and gathered 24 in a mason jar. I'm amazed to this day that we didn't get nailed. They're poisonous but very rarely fatal. You go to the hospital, they give you some calcium gluconate for the muscle cramping, antibiotics to prevent infection, and send you on your way.

hey..quit talking about me like I'm not here. Thanks Harkner, that's interesting to know….I know we grew up together but I'm really glad I wasn't hanging out with you and your brother when we were kids. Must be a boy thing.
10 July 2008 at 9:08 a.m.
redneckgirl - in Mr. Yester's Bio II class in high school we had to do a bug collection and I put our traps up on the sand rocks hoping to catch some black widows. I even bragged to the class about how widespread they were. I spread out cups with a dab of antifreeze in them and all I attracted were harvester ants, grasshoppers, and I think 1 jerusalem cricket. I was disappointed.
You'd actually be surprised at some of the stuff you can find around Craig. We saw a couple horned lizards up on the sand rocks once (horny toads), salamanders, those godforsaken Pinacate Beetles (the shiny black stink bugs that raise their derriere and emit that foul odor that smells like rotten leather), centipedes, millipedes, and of course box elder bugs and miller moths.
10 July 2008 at 10:01 p.m.
I still want to know if you like a good hineyliken redneckgirl
14 July 2008 at 11:37 a.m.
hineylicken beer of coarse lonley. it keeps you young and fit if drank in the proper amounts. of coarse if nim drank a little of it maybe they wouldn't be so darn uptight.
13 July 2008 at 7:05 a.m.
Of course i do, who wouldn't??
13 July 2008 at 10:33 a.m.
yes a good beer in the afternoon always seems to make the day go better.
13 July 2008 at 3:07 p.m.
Yep…it's tastin pretty good right now too.
13 July 2008 at 3:24 p.m.
guess I'm not the only one who likes a toddy…………..and yes I do believe they can be beer or other forms of thirst killing liquid. And yes I do mean water, soda, milk or what ever makes you feel better!Gee, I hope we haven't chaced new-to-town away by all our goofiness!
13 July 2008 at 3:31 p.m.
he probably got thirsty reading this lonley and went to the bar.
13 July 2008 at 3:35 p.m.
wish I was drinking beer today
13 July 2008 at 3:39 p.m.
The liquor stores are open on Sunday now.
13 July 2008 at 3:43 p.m.
yeah but i want to be drinking some of that german beer we discussed earlier
13 July 2008 at 3:48 p.m.
I heard it's actually pretty good for you but it's all good, no worries. I'm sure you'll get to drink it soon.
13 July 2008 at 3:52 p.m.
thats good cause i'm parched
13 July 2008 at 3:55 p.m.
50-talk to the bear! Haha hee hee
13 July 2008 at 4:02 p.m.
your lucky. She likes you!
14 July 2008 at 11:22 a.m.
Nim, you just made me laugh! You've gotten you butt chewed out a couple times……..yes by me and granny, but I'm kind of getting a kick out of you now!50 what kind of special german beer are you talking about? Maybe I don't need to know, I think I'll just stay with my toddies! But if you tell me then I am informed and Nim can't complain!! lol
14 July 2008 at 7:55 p.m.
Beer that keeps you fit and young huh?…..50 please do tell how this works?
14 July 2008 at 8:09 p.m.
If your drinking a lot of this beer it keeps you fit because you have to exercise to get to the bottom of the glass and if your busy drinking this beer you won't be eating unhealthy foods but even if you do you will work it off.
14 July 2008 at 8:28 p.m.
That's a pretty good explanation…but i think if you just stuck to eating healthy then that would be even more of a benefit right? My problem with healthy/unhealthy foods are lollipops…I'm not sure how fattening they are but i love them and i think I need to have one in my mouth all the time..but i like my beer too, little too much.
14 July 2008 at 8:54 p.m.
i dont like lollipops, I will let you have all of that that you want but if your drinking a good german beer you won't have time for lollipops.
14 July 2008 at 8:59 p.m.
What? You can't have both at the same time?? They are not that bad together..
14 July 2008 at 9:29 p.m.
nope, only one lollipop in the picture
14 July 2008 at 9:36 p.m.
i think we are talking about two different flavors of lollipops…
14 July 2008 at 9:51 p.m.
could be but I still like beer better I'll drink the beer and you can have the lollipop
14 July 2008 at 9:58 p.m.
NO, I'd rather have the beer too.
14 July 2008 at 10:03 p.m.
i'm out….gotta sleep…have a splenid night.
14 July 2008 at 10:05 p.m.
That was supposed to be splendid…my eye's are fried.
