    Thick clothing insulates from a wealth of worries!

    Does anyone remember that scientific study that was announced online a couple years ago, that you’re never more than six feet from a spider? Obviously not all big spiders. Really tiny ones, too.
    When I was telling my lil bro about that, my mom was listening at the kitchen table. And at that same moment, his dog, Eddie, who was under the table, put his wet nose against her bare knee. lol! She jumped in her seat and shrieked. lol! Totally random moment of comedy. :D

    Next time, flush the thing. They may be good at running, but NOT so much at swimming!

    I like the study (even tho’ it turned out to be bogus) that said over our lifetimes, we swallow 6-8 spiders in our sleep.

    Gaaah!! I would feel that thing in my hair (and I have a lot of hair). Sometimes my oldest plays with a little piece of my hair and I tell her to stop because it feels like a bug is in there. Ugh, I have the creepy crawlies now… :-(

    You call yourself natureboy? Spiders are extremely benificial creatures. They help reduce the population of harmful and pesky insects.

    I know … and I wish my cats would understand that and stop killing them when they get within reach.

    My cats eat them, like many native American tribes. BTW, the only two spiders that represent any threat at all to humans are the very shy black widow and the brown recluse.

    I thought of this strip yesterday when my husband told me to hurry up and open the door because he’d caught a spider. He was holding it in his hand. Then he dropped it on the carpet.
    I was yelling at him to hold up before doing anything, because I was planning to put a jar or glass over it and slide some stiff paper under it and put it outside. But he grabbed a Kleenex and squashed it. :-( He said it might be a brown recluse spider. Sigh. (I know a lot of you would do what he did.)
