Ken,

Does this mean that FINALLY, bubba's giant ANTS, will be revealed in this thread? :lol:

My money says probally NOT! All I can say is after bubba's full page build-up in the ant thread they better be some big damn ANTS!

That is unless you guys are the ANTS! :winkie:

Joan Collins sister lives here and writes dirty books! You got to admit Joan was a Hottie in those Goggles out in the Glades.I bet it was 140F out there and Joan could not have been a happy camper.Those Ants are dam scary and I have to say she was a storm trooper.Those Ants....those dam scary Ants...

Bubba,

According to IMDB that was Joan Weldon.

Dr. Patricia 'Pat' Medford: [observing the tunnel walls] Look! Held together with saliva!

Ben Peterson: Yeah! Spit's all that's holding me together right now, too.

Ahem..

Word has travelled far, Ken.

Okay this is getting really close to all the build-up, and HYPE that came before the SEGWAY! And we ALL know what a huge dissapointment that was! :rolleyes: Bubba hope your giant ants haven't been so ballyhooed,that they will not live up to expectations! :lol:

If your NOT going to show us the ANTS, at least show us some palms? :winkie:

John, That IMBD thing may say whatever it will but if that is not Joan Collins,I will eat the shoe off the largest Ant in the pack!Interestingly,I watched that whole dam movie in a hotel room in Palm Springs while my wife left the room for about ten hours to do "a little shopping" without her cell phone.She had my golf clubs in the trunk of the car.

All I could do was watch Collins and the Ants and look for old "Flipper" re-runs.

Scott,No way those dam Ants are going to meet your expectations.I have asked Ken just to cancel the whole thing.It's really just a Zone 9B garden at best anyhow.

Now look who's here. It is the Pious one himself. OK OK here is a group shot. I took the pic but later I set the timer while in the ANT pile so that we could all be seen with ANTS in our PANTS! Do you see the Bently guy? And how 'bout Bubba and his partner Pedro? And who is that masked man on the left? Could it be FTBG newest and greatest nursery manager? Yes I think it is.

Thats our host on the right..BOB THE ANT FARMER. He makes BURGERS with them! :sick:

William,

Looks like those giant ANTS did a number on Ken's date! Is that powdery mildew they left on its' head and shoulders? :lol: Were they attracted to the FLOWER Ken is putting behind IT'S ear? :hmm:

Will, I am just hoping you got some shots of the ANTS! Thoes suckers were moving so fast that they looked like COCKROACHES in the kitchen when I turn the lights on!

And have you ever seen EARWIGS that big? I will get a link so all of you will know what an earwig is. Or maybe someone will do it for me as I have never added a link to a post before.

You may not be aware of this... but while we were on our mission yesterday I managed to lasso me one of those hugenormous EARWIGS and rode it around while sunbathing... B) I'll have to dig around, there's proof of this somewhere...

Ken,

Heavens no, your date is quite attractive in a miscreant sort of way. :winkie:

I already gave up on the ANTS, between the two posts nary a sign of them. So if you didn't get any pics of the ANTS that is fine,if you have seen one ant you have seen them ALL. As Bubba said I would probably have been dissappointed anyway!

But I am finally enjoying the PALM pics,thanks!

Even though they seem to keep duplicating themselves! :unsure:

There was a rabid possum killing fox that we scarcely managed to avoid, it was not a kodak moment!

Scott, you should seen these ANTS! They were crawling out of ground trying to attack KEN... KEN fiercely conquered the GIANT ANT and tamed him... by the end of the day he was riding them!
