That was taken Thursday. I wanted to go yesterday, but thought the ground might be too muddy after the overnight rains. How was it? It was pretty dry on Thursday. Call or text me whenever you can make it.

It was definitely wet and slick... but I had the opportunity and took it.... they've been doing a great job keeping it mowed for us!

I'll definitely let you know next time, but it's not likely any time soon ... next session will probably be JIBE!

Just a thought... Spiders technically aren't BUGS... they're Arachnids... but "Another scary Arachnid-gy Ride" just wouldn't work as a good title on PKF ... the theme just won't hold up :lol::lol::lol:

Well, I was basically trying to fool people with the title but I wanted to give a sort of hint so I went with BUGgy. It has worked 77 views in the first day or so - probably a record for me. Plus I don't know how to spell aracknoid.

I always thought that "bugs" referred to any creepy crawly. Big difference between insect and arachnid though.

Agreed... I was just kidding around any way.

Sean, I actually HATE spiders too.

I hate bugs of all kinds as well. My rule - the more legs they have, the more that I despise them. It is a capital offense for them to be seen in my house, car, or kite buggy.
