Hulk Hogan

When we bought our house, it came with a playhouse the former owner had built for his daughter. Over the years, rain and sun took their toll on it, and it deteriorated to the point that it was time to go. Debbie never really used it, anyway, so last weekend I called a handyman to come demolish the playhouse and haul away the pieces, along with some old wood and other detritus from the backyard.

The handyman looked at the playhouse, grabbed hold of the front wall, gave a strong tug, and with a grunt the entire wall and door tore right off! Then he laughed, and said, "I feel like Hulk Hogan!"

Hulk's girlfriend, Julie, was helping him with the cleanup. Hulk looked inside the frontless playhouse and began to notice all the cobwebs erected by errant arachnoids. He turned to Julie and said, "Honey, could you get a broom and sweep those out, please?"

Julie chuckled and told me, "Hulk Hogan there is afraid of spiders."

Is that Debbie? She's so cute! I bet that she's a lot bigger now. :)

It's interesting how we all have our strengths and weaknesses. It's especially nice when friend's phobias complement each other, so that working together a task can be completed.

Yeppers. That's Debbie at a tender age, I'm guessing 4 or 5. She's taller now, and cuter, too. :)

My wife thought it would have been nice to take a photo of Debbie standing in front of the playhouse before we whacked it, but alas that didn't occur to me before the deed was done.

Something I forgot to mention about "Hulk Hogan"... in clearing away leftover lumber he found one of the salamanders that like to live under flowerpots and other hidey-holes around our house. After holding it up to show to me, he carefully found a new home for it. My kinda guy.

I don't blame Hulk one little bit!

Great photo!
I'm not at all afraid of spiders.
However, show me 3 or more ants in one spot and I'm freaking out. Go figure.

Dave, what are you guys planning to do with the space where the playhouse was?
