Meet Bubba. As in Big Ugly Bug - Be Afraid. I know this is a lousy picture, but honestly, I was too nervous he was going to jump out at me, so I clicked and slammed the door shut.
Bubba seems to have adopted us. The bastard. Last night Hamburger pointed him out...he was leering at us from the side wall of the front porch. I'm pretty sure he waved, too, because he's got these long arms, and one of them moved. Evidently, he's appointed himself watch dog. Or watch bug. Or whatever. Today, he has moved to the door handle. He was there to greet me when I returned from my walk. I think he waved at me again. Currently, he's all tucked up inside, so if anyone reaches for the handle, they're in for a rude surprise. Thank god he didn't object to me and the key. Also thank god the door opens when you turn the key and I didn't have to touch the handle.
This has got to be the biggest bug I've ever seen. He's about 3 inches long, and he looks like a big albino cricket with Mick Jagger lips. And I'm not kidding about the lips.
All I know, is if the doorbell rings, I'm not answering.
