Thanks, guys. Yep, I used the air-only portion of the spray gun and blew him off before he could cause too much damage.

I'm off tomorrow and I am going to flip the body back over right-side up and put it back on the rolling cart to start topside bodywork.

Yep, every rainy season there are frogs hopping around in the parking lot and a few of them end up attracted to the light in the shop and they come in and hide somewhere. Every so often, we find a petrified frog under something.

Could be worse, we also have gators down here !

How do you get gators out of your paint?

Haha, Florida is full of strange critters , for sure. One morning I was asleep and my two cats were making a fuss on the floor near my computer table. I woke up and told them to knock it off so I could go back to sleep, and then I saw a snake come out from under the table ! Both cats were hot on his tail.

I HATE SNAKES, and I was like a little girl, I jumped up and stood on the bed and then ran out of the room to figure out what to do. I couldn't find him, and I slowly removed every piece of furniture and stuff from the bedroom, but still couldn't find him.

A little while later, I went out on the lanai, and there he was, sitting on top of a box. The lanai is totally screened in, but he found a little hole to come in through, and then he came into the bedroom through a pet door.

I grabbed a broom and broke it over his head, and then put him in a bucket and took him to the dumpster. For weeks I had a hard time sleeping in that room, but I was really happy that I found out where he was, otherwise, I would never have felt comfortable in there again !

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.

Noooooooooooooooooope. I don't like snakes.

In early 2010 I was in Houston on business, and went out to dinner with a large group from work. It's never a good sign when you come out and see a crowd staring at your rental car. There was about a 4 foot long snake under my car with its head right behind the drivers front tire. They told me it was just a "garden snake" and wasn't poisonous, but I sure didn't want to find out. While one of my (less-evolved) colleagues decided to taunt the snake on the drivers side, I got in the passengers side and started the car, which scared the snake away. That was enough of a snake encounter for this Alberta kid.

I remember that every time I start wondering why I live where it's cold.
