A few months after I moved into my house, a scorpion was discovered in the closet of my guest room!!
Egads, thank goodness my guest was awfully nice about it!!
3 years later, they still pop up occasionally, but they seem to be mostly gone from the homestead. (Thank goodness!)
Friends and relatives have helped me build a collection of scorpion-related items - so I'm always on the hunt for the latest scorpion do-dad.
