First the Eco Haul guys tried to demo the hot tub.
But that didn't work. Then they decided to cut it in half. But then they realized they would not be able to get it through the door. So thirds it was.
When they turned it over guess what we found? Spiders. Not just regular spiders but Black Widows. Tiny ones but poisonous ones none the less. It is the legged thing above the big leaf.
Then they realized that thirds won't fit through the doorway and they couldn't lift the thirds anyway! So, we cut some more.
That is when we started to see the critter homes and tunnels. Like I said it was not as bad as I thought it was going to be. The insulation was in better condition than I expected. But below you will see where a critter had a tunnel built.
Here you will see where the critter had his or her home right near the warm motor. Oh, we found a rat. I took a photo but it didn't come out. He or she was quite dead. I am sure he or she was not alone but we found one dead when they lifted the tub and he or she fell out. (Better dead than alive, I say!)
Saying goodbye to the hot tub one last time. It was in the truck going away to hot tub heaven or wherever hot tubs go when they get cut up and torn apart. So sad to see it go!

At 1:20 am I was woken by a horrible pain in my tummy. I got nauseous and dizzy. I couldn't figure out what was going on. I had visions of a middle of the night emergency room visit and having to wake Brenda and tell her. Instead I got a heating pad and curled up. I slept for an hour at a time. Waking up constantly from the pain.
I am not sure if it is food poisoning or a stomach thing. I still feel out of it and pretty crappy. My doc (who I coincidentally saw today) sent me for a blood test and another stool sample. What fun!
Brenda ate the Thanksgiving pie for dinner so that will be the test to see if it was food poisoning. She ate it before I got back from the docs.

The cover looks practically new! Hopefully I can sell it and make back some of my money. Now I call the haulers to come take it away.
While I was at the hardware store I saw this Christmas decoration and it made me laugh!
Brenda and I made a trial run of the meatballs we want to make for the party today. She says they taste great. Yeah!!
