I'm Sorry, But This Had To Go!


It was easily the size of my hand and I have long fingers! This thing should have been paying rent! I have never in all my life seen a "house spider" that bloody big! Good grief! And I did not want it crawling over me whilst I slept! Of course as I shrieked, Stephen lay in bed paralyzed with laughter!

Lordy Callie.... could you hear him galloping along as he scooted from place to place?

I'm with you!! Squish City and the VACUUM would have been my solution! ;)

Now thats what we call a "Herbert!" Up here, thats not a big one! No! The ones we have as house spiders, carry their own luggage!!!

You have to admit, that thing looks pretty cool. I wouldn't have left it anywhere near the bed either, but I have to admit I would have put that one outside. I am impressed that you stopped screaming long enough to take pictures!

I have arachnophobia so bad, I would be more likely to move out. Leave all belongings in case he had a family. Yep, I'd leave.

Next time you find a spider just scoop it up and put it on Steve's face as he sleeps.....I bet he won't be laughing then.

lol!

I heard recently that we have more spiders this year and they are larger spiders because there is a bug population explosion due to all the wet weather we had....

I am not a spider fan. Just seeing that picture gives me the chills. I will wake up my OH to kill a spider in the middle of the night. And that spider is weird looking, I haven't seen one like that before!

I hate those buggers, I swear they can out think most people and animals. That's what bothers me the most. I met one in the barn alley once and he dodged me like a dog that stole my last piece of pizza off the table. Yuck

And Arlene fromm Grey Horse Matters says, "As I said when Stephen posted about this critter, "All spiders must die"!

Sorry Arlene for some reason, blogger is being weird and it wouldn't let me publish, so I put your comment up the only way I knew how, copy & paste, LOL
