Oo Aunt Jilli, is this the house where you put the little troll cabin in the back and I live as your Yard Witch? [lol if you even remember that conversation…]
When can I move in? Is there wi-fi? We’re going to need wi-fi for the Elder Goth Retirement Haunted Mansion.
The official Boston Police and Humane Society guide to dealing with inner city wild turkey attacks in the mid 90s was “Hit it with your purse and run”. I shit you not. I happen to like them, their families nest on my mother’s land in VA, but I do not mess with them. They are meaner than geese. :) If one asked for my sandwich I’d be like, “HERE!” versus a peacock, where I’d be like *SHOVE* BEYOTCH GIT YO OWN
Why would you run?! It’s a turkey! It’s not Cujo!Ever interacted with a hungry or territorial or even mildly pissed off wild turkey?
Does an all of those things domesticated turkey count?
They’re kinda terrifying but YOU MUST NOT SHOW FEAR so you just have to remember that they’re also cute and hilarious.

Anonymous said: Sl i saw the post about the harvestman arachnid vs an actual spider. So does that mean that, because they only have one body section, Daddy Long Legs are not spiders? (Im in Massachusetts by the way in case you don't know what a Daddy Long Legs is)
i do indeed know what a daddy- long legs is, but some people use that name for harvestmens (eastern US) and some people (like myself) call “cellar spiders” daddy-long legs. This is more common in areas that don’t have harvestmens (western US). So what you are referring to as a”Daddy-long legs” are actually harvestmens and yes they are not spiders they are Opiliones. But Cellar spiders (terms used in eastern US) are Daddy-long legs which are spiders. Just to be clear here are some pictures :)
this is a daddy-long legs/ cellar spider (note the two body sections)
and this one is a harvestmen or for the east coast people a daddy-long legs. (note the single body segment)
i hope the is clear and understandable haha :)
We have both harvestmen/opiliones in western WA and cellar spiders/pholcids, and people call both “daddy long legs” and it’s maddening.
I lean towards the taxonomic nomenclature for both, except for the pholcids in my room, which are “derp” as they have forgotten how to spider.
