The point of this introduction is to explain a level of anxiety still present in the household. As I was typing my previous post a short while ago, I was startled to hear my wife and daughter screaming in the other room. They yelled for me to come capture or kill something that was attacking them. It turned out to be the ant in these two photos. I knew they would tell people it was at least an inch long, so I thought it would be a good idea to photograph it on graph paper. Sorry to disappoint, but they are half-inch squares, so the ant is probably about 5/8 inch from nose to butt. It's funny how they always look much bigger until you catch them.
