MY DAUGHTER CALLED ME THE OTHER NIGHT IN A PANIC AND....

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with People first then business! Ran Right Realty Riverside, Ca BRE LIC #636943

I just finished a successful book signing and my publisher (a saint of a woman) took me out for some dinner. In the middle of dinner, I get a call from my daughter who is in a panic. Dad, where are you? I am eating dinner..why? I need you at home.. Whats wrong sez I....There is something in my room and it has me freaked out

I will be right there sez I...this is what I found below....

 

My daughter is sitting on a couch to the left so I see her. As I climb down stairs and enter this room, there is this Dummy (I don't mean to be rude...but it is accurate) that took me by surprise. It startled me for a nano-second and then I recovered...BUT THAT IS NOT WHY SHE CALLED ME... SEE BELOW THIS PICTURE

 

 

SEE BELOW PLEASE

 

 

 

 

I live in a semi-rural area where one of everything resides. I have come to realize that all things work to together and for the greater good..the food chain if you will. I caught this little critter and then released him back into the wild.  My daughter was paralyzed with fear and wanted to leave the room as I did my National Geographic duties

Good evening Richie. What a scary story. You are a very good guy and a great Dad. I hope things go well all around.

Gay..thank you on the book signing..wonderful event, meeting people and having them share their hearts with me and my publisher...priceless. Gay, it was a scorpion who just lost his way and because it is warmer inside than out, he wandered in. I know Hollywood would have you believe it is part of a task force for invasion....

Richie,

The duties of a father are infinite...and never ending. BTW, that grout is really clean.

Jeanne  and Ralph...Not bad..I couldn't get eye contact or focus with here as she was on a couch, on her near tippy toes and in a slight shock....She gets that way with black widows too....If they knew how much some people are scared of them, they could take over the world....

That little guy appears to be in good health, the dummy on the other hand needs some foraging.  Good job Richie, it's Super Dad to the rescue once again.

We usually give any we find a "watery ride" to the great beyond. In Arizona scorpions are not all that uncommon. All the best.

Richie - WOW!!!  If I found one of those in my bedroom, I too would be freaking out.  One morning, I got up and went downstairs and when I turned on the kitchen light this humungous, black, hairy tarantula was in the middle of the floor.  I let out the most blood curling scream.  Hubby said I about gave him a major coronary as he practically fell down the stairs to get to me.  We laugh about it now but it totally freaked me out then.  I can so relate to your daughter.  :)

That is our roles as fathers. . .and I love it!

Although scorpions are a little freaky when found inside a bedroom. .

I guess living in California, Scorpion extermination is daddy duty, Richie.

Kevin (the cool) May...thank you. Lifeguard DAD on duty is correct. Never a day off either...The dummy reaped what it sewed...Dummy in...dummy out...lol

 

Benjamin Realty...one cannot help but wonder if you are training in a new breed of a type of scorpion surfer? With your water tactics...In just a few short years, these things will have land and sea cabilities?

 

Donne...When a man gives out the type of scream you describe, all the animals obey and come forward and Tarzan is at work...When a woman screams like you do, things tend to go the other way. On hubby coming to the rescue, I am laughing because I have been there and done that and after finding what ever is causing the scream, just standing there puzzled...Whatever makes her scream also scares the cause of the scream too

 

Fernando..a true man shrugs it off as MAN 101 duties and he is right. if we see anything in the wild, it is fascinating and even magnificent. If we see it in our bedrooms...WHOA! is right

 

Hello Chris...I have answered DAD 911 calls and never know what to expect from my wife and two daughters over the years. You know Chris....When a man is hunting bear, he and the bear know where things stands...if that man takes his wife/daughter with him, well the bear gets the advantage...

Richie - Here in the mountains of N. GA we get some of the critters too, but probably not as nasty as those of CA. A couple of times we've seen the crawling on the ceiling--not a comforting sight.
