Wow, that sounds like a scary fall, I'm glad you weren't seriously hurt!! That's an interesting interpretation, @Babs Hunt. No, we weren't married, he was my ex-fiance, and we're actually best friends. I think it has more to do with fears of the neighborhood going down, Summer approaching, so the young people will be at it again, roaming and looking to get into trouble/steal things, etc. Also, the house next door is currently for rent, and it's drawing a lot of random vehicles and people to my area, which is disconcerting. The scorpion could be reflecting stress from the stalker situation. Every time the house is up for rent and random people start parking by my driveway, watching me, hanging around, creeping by, etc., it adds to my stress level.
