  • The darned bug startled me!

    You know how some things you just aren't expecting? Well, tonight, I was outside welding some hinges on a trailer for a neighbor and a bug landed right in the puddle. I admit it. I jumped. I bet he won't do that again.

          That reminds me when I was working in the shipyard on the night shift...we have these huge flying bugs the size if a golf ball, and they are real stupid.....I was laying the bow plates, when one flew right into my hood and freaked me out...my stinger went one way and my hood the other...almost had to change my britches on that one!
