Spyders and Wasps, Oh My!

Yes, I rode to work today.

As I was walking into the Courthouse this morning one of the deputies said, "Sure feels better out here today than yesterday." Yesterday it was 35F/2C and today it was 37F/3C. Maybe he is very sensitive. I must admit I didn't feel much difference. It was less windy, perhaps that made a difference he was noticing.

Yesterday I saw Ruckuses or is it Rucki? Today at lunch I saw this beast.

There was a time I thought I might like to own a Spyder. Heather and I even test rode one. I didn't mind the ride, but it just didn't seem to make sense. We both liked the Ural much better. It had personality. That said, at this time, neither a Spyder nor a Ural is in our plans.

Also, at lunchtime I saw some of the crew charged with keeping the streets clean.
There is lots going on Downtown this weekend. Tomorrow is the Cardinals Home Opener, the NRA is in town, there is a marathon, and playoff hockey.
These little guys are having to work overtime.

After work I stopped by the grocery store to buy some odds and ends.
Yesterday it was Rucki, today it was Spyders and Wasps, oh my!
  • 37F/3C and clear for the ride to work this morning.
  • 63F/17C and clouding over for the ride home.


  1. And I don't have any problem with neither spi(y)ders nor wasps... as long as they have two wheels ;-)

    1. Or, three? Heather isn't much fond of bugs with legs, either.

  2. Cute bird photos and comments. Humans often forget that anything that lives also works in some way...Enjoy your weekend!

    1. I'm glad you liked the photo. Yes, all us who breath must get by.

      Thanks for the good wishes and I hope you enjoy your weekend, too.
