S-P-I-D-E-R-S...they come large and in-charge, Texas-style.
Today while Gav was out mowing our monstrous backyard, he was going to get the small patch behind our utility shelter and found the long-legged black one...I don't know what species that is but I am convinced that thing is (or should I say...WAS) poisonous. We have no humane treatments for spiders or bugs here in our house. I apologize to those that might offend!
The other more furry brown spider I luckily found already deceased and partly shrivelled...but in my garage. There is something to be said about cleaning out your garage on a routine basis.
I know I shouldn't post these pics for my sister Denise's sake. We have a common memory of a particular night when we were 5-6 years old. Where she awoke screaming Blood curdling screams...all to find a spider in her bed that had just had a tasty snack on her back. She has since been terrified...and I also...although I have to say I can still function when I know spiders are inevitable. She, on the other hand, is quite traumatized by the incident. So, De, I'm sorry...these were just too cool to pass up!!
Makes you wonder what's in your backyard, huh?!!!
