I was just stung by a scorpion! I didn’t even know that FL had scorpions! Did you hear that, Lin? Something to add to your “Things to See in Florida” list. From living here and in CA for a hundred years, I know better than to stick my fingers where they can’t be seen.
This little bugger was on the handle of Cassie’s water bucket! When I touched the handle it stung me. Talk about excruciating pain. Julie, that little sting makes putting Liquid Skin on an open cut seem like nothing at all. This scorpion was only about an inch long—I cannot imagine getting stung by the larger version.
I am happy to say that this particular evil creature is now in scorpion heaven. Cassie is 14 years old—thankfully, the scorpion stung me and not my old girl.
Sorry—no pix of this one!
