    But it wasn't me!

    I had to move hay to day and this is what I found snoozing on the tractor:

    Ehhhh:

    I buckle in. Check out my fancy seat belt. I hate it when my tractor gets fractious and throws me out.

    And off we go!

    When I completed my job, the spider was traumatized, but unhurt.

    I think she gave me the raised fang in this photo:

    But her web was still intact:

    And I left her to her creature comforts. Until next time Ms. Spider!

    TheOldChick, I salute you! You have faced down a formidable opponent, shown mercy in victory, and ridden off into the sunset in style! I would have baled out of the tractor screaming like a girl (so okay, I AM a girl, but I'm a very tough girl ... except when it comes to spiders .... I can't even BREATHE around them!)
