We returned to Tucson Saturday afternoon, June 28th so we missed the earthquake that rattled southeast Arizona that night. Heard from our friend Helen Snyder that it was quite a rumble and rocks were heard falling in Cave Creek Canyon by folks in the campgrounds. Hopefully our house isn't cracked by the shock. We'll see when we go back to Portal after the 4th.
So, in Tucson we have creepie crawlies too! Found this centipede floating in the dogs water dish this morning and assumed it was dead, since it was limp and not moving. I put it in a plastic box for my collection of dead critters, and this evening when I was going to put it in my collection, I saw that it was wriggling around in the box! Resurrected, I had no choice but to take it outside and let it go. It was happy to craw under a big flower pot off the patio. Go in peace, but please stay out of the house!
