Alice and I are staying in a apartment at RAM while LB is being painted. We were told by a previous tenant that they had seen scorpions inside the living space. I found a dead one behind a cabinet in the living room so I figured the rumors were true.

This morning I was surfing the web when from the bed room Alice let out a couple of very loud screams. "There's a scorpion in the bathroom".

Yup, we have scorpions in our apartment

Captain Bob to rescue his damsel in distress.

I grabbed a towel, dropped it over the little feller and picked it up. OUCH!!, the darn thing either bit me or stung me. I reacted by dropping it and covering it again with the towel. This second attempt was more successful and less traumatic; into the toilet and it was gone with a flush, but, this sting lingers on even now after an hour or so.

The scorpion was only three or so inches long, but who'd think such a little guy could give such a sting.

Alice and I have spent considerable time together on the water; cruising and racing on the waters of New England, the Caribbean and Lake Michigan.

Sailing is our passion and together we've been fortunate to experience the thrills, the camaraderie and the enjoyment boating provides. [...]

We seek the freedom, excitement and challenges of voyaging.

This is our second journey south to the Caribbean. This time we've chosen to exit Lake Michigan and proceed south through the in-land waterway system to Mobile. We'll start around Labor Day and take our time exploring the history of middle America.
