Did my old heart good to see this cockroach stuck in the filter of the dishwasher. I let him suffer and then I dissed him!!!

Hate those critters!!!! Boric Acid IS my friend!!!

We get some big ones too. Nina has had a couple in her house...YIKES! , but so far I have just had the usual spiders, ants, and a little something that might have been a roach but did NOT live long enough to identify it as such. Quick, I have to find some wood to knock on!! I can't believe you looked at it long enough to take a pic! Carol you truly are brave, aren't you!!??

You got that right!!!

The Only negative side is that the man will not let me prune!!! OH, yes...I can do the citrus trees (he likes his orange juice) but I can't touch anything!!! Drives me nuts!!! He is a great guy and really supports my crazy whims (Oh, let's collect shrumburgias now...OK, let's collect...)...but then, he goes bananas with palms and bamboo!!!

I'm not going to ask how you pulled a muscle in your back...but my imagination is giving me the giggles. Take it easy friend mine, and make that man make you some tea!
