I don't like spiders and snakes, and that ain't
« on: August 05, 2017, 08:07:27 PM »
What it takes to love me. HA! There's an oldie.

Woodsorrels blog had me wanting to share this. At first I thought it was a copper head, it's just a scared milk snake. No I didn't kill it, I like having them around. There are plenty of field mice and frogs for them!! I've had striped garters and grass snakes, this guy is new to us.

Speaking of spiders..I was doing some pre winter upkeep on my pump house, I have not looked in there for a while, when I opened up the door this morning there had to be a couple hundred Daddy Long legs in there.  I have not seen that before.

Well I think that is better than a couple of hundred black widows which are sometimes in my friends crawlspace.

My wife woke up with a spider bite.  Spider died.

The long legs guy are no problem, when I lived down on the flat, it was pretty common to find black widow spiders in the dark corners of my shop. What I really dislike are the hobo spiders, their venom is pretty similar to the brown recluse.  I was bitten by a hobo spider, that put me out of commission for about a week, I have a scar on my leg that looks like it was made by a .38.

Every few mornings, a spider (or spiders) build a web between two cars in my driveway. When I leave for work before dawn, I walk into it and do the ol' I just walked into a spiderweb heebie-jeebie freakout dance. A few mornings pass and I forget about and then ... BAM ... it happens again. Two mornings ago, I walked though it and did the dance. I got in the car before I realized a giant spider was on my chest. Jumped out and did the dance again. I HATE SPIDERS!

I do the same if I walk into them.  Puts one of the break dancer kids to shame.   :P
