    Default Wandering Spider

    We had to drag Molly Taco in from the screened entry last night because she was engrossed in watching this spider, who hung around until this AM so I could snap a pic. He looked totally menacing but from what I read I think that he is harmless. He measured about 1 1/2" toe to toe.

    Aww...just look at that soft, fluffy abdomen! What a cuddler!

    Molly Taco needs another trip to the PO. Cin, I'll PM you Diane's address. I think she has a birthday coming up!

    Mean, you are all just plain mean! Especially since I DID get a spider bite this weekend, which has now become infected.... not a black widow, just some 'ordinary' spider. But a delicate flower like me.... well I am just so sensitive to those things. Actually have one eye swollen shut. The damn thing bit me on the face during the night....

    Any suspicious packages from Fla are getting stomped on!!!

    Where do you put the batteries in that thing?!?!? I like spiders but this one is sorta' unerving. That thing is so big if you hit it with a shovel its legs would stick out the sides....then again that might just make it mad .

    Yikes, Diane! Poor thing - got an infected bite AND a case of the willies. Hope you found the culprit and had your way with it.

    Diane, Molly promises not to send it to you, besides it has been relocated from the front screen. I thought that it would be much happier out in the garden and not tormenting The Rat and the gang.
