Lilly and the spider

We were being very lazy last night, sitting around on the sofa watching television, when all of a sudden Lilly perks up and jumps down to chase a spider across the living room.  It was a wolf spider that had run out from under the sofa.  Wolf spiders are really ugly, fast and they can jump…..and they really give me the willies.  Lilly thought it was a wonderful play thing and even put her foot down right on top of the spider.  Of course in true cat fashion she let it go so she could chase it some more.  That was when I thumped the spider with one of my flip flops.  I didn’t even think to grab the camera…so here is a picture from http://www.bugguide.net.

Ugly aren’t they?  I know spiders are beneficial by eating other yucky bugs.  They just need to stay outside!

  2. I know right!? I freaked out when she put her foot smack down in the middle of the spider. All eight legs frantically wiggling around her foot. The stuff my nightmares are made of!

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
