Freaky Sunday encounter

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Sharon Lee's Virtual Assistance

Good Sunday afternoon everyone-I came home from getting last minute things for my trip next week and this freaky looking bug greeted me on my front step. I didn't want it coming in my house so I put a plastic container over it and then went inside and got my camera. I cropped it so it isn't as clear plus it was crawling before it flew off.  I have no idea what it is but the eyes are rather spooky looking and if I am lucky I won't encounter IT again.

I knew it was a beetle, but was unsure of the type.  Freaky looking for sure.

Myrl-I agree and I hope that is the last time I see it

Tammy-I never saw a beetle that big and it is those false eyes are what makes it looks so freaky

Sharon Lee ~ I was finally able to make the rounds today, so of course, I stopped by to say hi to you! And I am so glad I did, this post is a perfect example of "you never know what will show up at your front door" but you always need to be ready for anything

Jon-Well I wasn't exactly ready but at least he didn't get in the house and I captured its pic and found out what it was.  Nice to see you. I am away on vacation but will return either tomorrow or Saturday.

 Good Friday morning Sharon. I have seen this bug before. I'm not too sure what it is called. I haven't seen it in Tennessee and I remember seeing it when I lived in Florida.

Michael-I had never seen it but Debb Janes knew what it was. A click beetle. I googled it. I imagine Fla would have them. I had never seen one before this one.

A click beetle. I've never seen this alien looking beetle and hope no to.  Thanks for sharing the photo, now I am going to show my husband.

Well, it's just amazing what I learn here! :-)  I bet some of your birds would like to eat that click beetle, I don't believe I've ever seen one :-)

Mary-I learned too because I didn't know what it was until Debb Janes told me what it was. It would have to be a fast bird to catch I think though. I had never seen one or since.

You haven't written anything in a while. I hope everything is OK. How's your mom? Lucky and I are heading out to the dog park soon. We meet up with others there every Saturday when I don't have to work. This is turning into a great networking place for me.

Hi Debbie Laity -Been busy with things here at home. I will post again sometime in the future but don't know when. Have fun at the park. Glad it has been a good outlet. Mom is doing OK. Thanks for asking. Happy Easter.

I had a freaky encounter tonight. I came home after staying at the dog park until almost dark. Then had to do a Walmart trip to pick up something for a sick friend. Then spent time at her house. So it was fairly late when I settled in at home. 

I'm sitting here working on my AR blog and I hear what sounds like someone trying to get in my front door. I forgot to lock it. I bolted over and leaned hard against the door while I locked it. 

You know what that noise was? Well Chloe had gotten into one of the cabinet and I shut the door not knowing she was in there. After over an hour she was finally trying to get out. LOL.

Debbie Laity -That is too funny. Glad you didn't have a real break in. Better check your cabinets for kitties from now on. LOL
