Just when you think it’s safe to do the wash…

..this shows up under the clean wet clothes. We had just come from an overnight camping trip near Rome, Ga. Such fun and beautiful weather. Getting home late Sunday afternoon required all hands on deck to unload the car, store the camping tents etc., and pile the dirty clothes in front of the washer. Between dinner and baths I threw in one load, but forgot to run the dryer until early this morning.

5:55 Monday morning, coffee going and before I started the daily lunch assembly, my mind remembered those wet clothes from yesterday. Trooping into the laundry room under a too-bright light, I reached down into the washer pulling out wet clothes after we clothes, shoving them into the dryer.

I never even looked at what I was grabbing until I got near the bottom to fish for socks. Can you imagine my surprise to find this little guy! I just stood there wondering if they can climb washer drums and then noticed that it’s little tongue was hanging out. Dead but clean. Good ‘ol Arm & Hammer soap.

Needless to say it gave everyone a good story for school.. and work. I’m glad I got a photo. Not sure what kind this was, but I’m just thankful we didn’t meet when I was carrying these clothes inside! Thankful that he didn’t bother anybody in the car! And thankful God said, “…upon your belly you shall crawl.” Yikes, If that thing had had legs…
