You're never more than 8' from a spider someone said. We share the world with them. Mice can fold their shoulders inward to get into small holes. As winter is coming, all critters look for a warm place to spend time. Paper wasps (mud daubers) are looking for places to build nests. The screen door is not a great stopper for a bug. Lots of holes in the body for propane and water lines on the bottom and lots of stuff on the top.

And, of course, nothing stops monsters. Did you know about the monster with a knife that will cut off your foot or hand if you put it over the edge of the bed? You're lucky if he just grabs it—usually it's just one whack and it's gone.

There was a wasp inside the trailer today and I don't know how he got in. On our trip home I found two small beetles on the dinette table. In the mountains of Colorado there are very few bugs, but we live lower down now (6,837') and in a warmer climate than we used to and have a lot more wildlife of the smaller type. As the climate warms, more and more paper wasps and some strange bugs I've never seen before. Tarantulas will be next along with killer bees; scorpions are already around.

it takes a village of critters...

i rely on the spiders to control the mice...

and the goblins to control the monsters...

but then again MOST of my encounters with things happen in route

after all it is the journey that matters not the destination,

and the neewollah celebration is just around the corner...

we are all part of the biosphere and some of us are part of the bizzaro-sphere (which is square) too.

so sometimes i wonder whom eats who on htrae...

and if they had critter issues OR airstreams here (or is it there) ?

they did have issues with expired gases, but no barking ducks...
