I don’t think so!
I was playing with one of the dogs and sat on the edge of the dogloo opening. Guess who was behind me?!?
Meet Mrs. Banana Spider, aka Golden Silk Spider. With her nice pointy legs she was as large as my hand.
They say her bite is no more painful than a bee sting. Ouch. So who wants to come to Florida now?? 😉
Where’s the Raid?!!
Ohhhhhhhhh…..I did NOT need to see this!!!!
I would have gone into cardiac arrest, there is nothing on Earth that scares me more than spiders and bugs, I’ll take snakes and rodents anyday, I can’t even get in my bed without lifting my covers and checking for bugs, it’s a serious phobia, I even have my 3 terriers trained to come running as fast as they can if I scream, they literally kill whatever I point at. I turned down a ride in Tennessee with friends when they told me the size of the summer bugs, I couldnt find a bee keeper riding suit so passed :). I HATE BUGS!!!
That that made me laugh! I can just see your little terriers killing whatever is in sight!
Today must have been spider day. This giant monster then a half hour later Zorya is playing with something in her lips. Like an idiot, I just took it from her without looking. Yep—smooshed spider!
We had a bad rain storm last night that must have disturbed the critters.
I’m with you! I can’t stand those creepy crawlers!
Count me OUT, I take a major pass on spiders or any creepy crawlies. I’ll take the Michigan cold and snow to kill them off!
I think she would be creepier if she was hairy, her colors are pretty. I pass on Florida any season.
Oh my gosh, it’s so big I can see the expression on its face. But what are worse than spiders, which at least I can kill, are roaches. Roaches I’m too scared to kill…I’m afraid they’ll fly onto me. I picked up Michael’s friend recently and his mother sent 2 beautiful orchids out with him so I loaded them onto the front seat of my car and fortunately, right before I pulled out of his long driveway, I looked over and saw a HUGE palmetto bug/roach, whatever you want to call it, in the plastic bag. I swear it looked 2″ long. I could not bail out of my car fast enough. Michael thank goodness was there to get it out. He had to swear to me it was out of the car. He knew I would wreck us if it weren’t.
Oh I’m with you on the roaches, they are Public Enemy #1 followed by grasshoppers and June bugs, I have a can of Raid in every room, that way the bugs can’t escape while I’m running for the Raid, I once was driving to work and pulled the visor down and a HUGE grasshopper was on the visor, I jumped out of the car and abandoned it in the middle of the street till someone came and killed it, the MOST embarrassing thing I ever did was one time in the grocery store I was bending down to pick up a box of dog biscuits, I glanced inside my shirt as I was leaning forward and saw black legs near the top of my bra, I freaked and pulled my tank top off right there in the aisle and to my embarrassment it was a few threads from my black bra, I calmly put my top back on and with a red face walked out of the store 🙂
Thank you for my entertainment of the morning. Now come over and clean my laptop—there is coffee everywhere! 🙂 I’m surprised your grocery-store stint didn’t make it to youtube.
Best. Story. Ever!
this sounds like something I would do! One day in a staff meeting, the lady across from me was giving her report and this roach came crawling over the top of her shoulder on her sweater and I was trying to push my chair back to get up and get out of there I guess before she saw it and flung it off and potentially onto me and at the same time trying to say Janice there’s a roach on you and it was like I couldn’t even get the words out. It was like it was happening in slow motion, she told me later she was watching my face take on this horrified expression and I know if it’d been me, I probably would have ripped my shirt off. She screamed and I screamed back. What might have set me up for this was when I was a little girl, I was sitting on the toilet and my mom came over to throw in a piece of toilet paper with a roach in it and she accidentally dropped it into my underwear…I must have been in a “fear period” and that traumatic experience impacted me for life. LOL.
Wow…beautiful, clear pictures Carole.
