    So don't hate me to much...... [​IMG]


    So yesterday evening I was on the phone with DH, confessing about the 150.00 Aquarium Filter, and I started out the back sliding door. I paused for some reason. TG!!!! I suddenly looked up and.......

    Here is a close up of Charlotte.

    She is going to be relocated today. I am sure that at some point I will forget that she is right there at face level. I kind of like spiders, but not in the face. I think it would upset Charlotte too. Can you only imagine what she will be thinking when I ruin all of her hard work? I am still very happy that I paused and looked up. I normally just barge out that door without thinking. [​IMG]

    Dear Lord; Please protect me from scared, mad, and vengeful Red Hens. [​IMG]

    Glad to know I'm not the only one that names my orb weavers Charlotte. We have Charlotte 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and so on and so forth.... and that's just in the front yard. [​IMG]

    Quote:Yeah that's the way it works here too. I also happy to know that I am not the only one that does it either. I also have named all the male Hummingbirds Larry, and the girls are named Fred. That way I don't to worry about how many different little birds are around.

    Thank you for that closeup; I was going, "I don't see anything... [​IMG] Her flowers are still blooming! Or is she talking about the fireplace needing painted again...? Nope, that's good too. She's finally cracked."

    And by thank you, I mean, 'Okay. Coulda lived without that! [​IMG] " I like spiders, but not that close!

    I did get mad at my mom the other day because I tried to rescue a spider and she had my stepdad kill it instead. [​IMG] It was just being a spider....

    Hey, I thought of Red today too. [​IMG]

    I was driving down the road and happened to look up to the ceiling of the car. There was a HUGE grandaddy longlegs right above my face. [​IMG]
    You will be pleased to know that I did not drive off the road. I came to a complete stop, picked him up by the leg and tossed him out the window. I was thinking of Red the whole time. [​IMG]

    Ugh, yuck, shudder, bleah...I had a moment quite like that a few weeks ago...walked right under the web, oblivious, just to turn around to walk back and go " Oh my God!!!"....whew...that thing could've jumped on my head and killed me in a millesecond. Just glad I saw him in time to prevent him from a second chance.

    I like spiders, too. [​IMG] They're the mortal enemy of flies, which I hate! [​IMG] And, yes, I am also the one that catches spiders in the house, and releases them outside [​IMG]

    I don't name them all Charlotte, but I do occasionally name them - especially the pretty garden spiders that I get sometimes http://entomology.unl.edu/images/spiders/argiope_aur2.jpg My last one was named Betsy [​IMG]
