Along Came a Spider

Do you see all those little iridescent green specks on it's back?  Yeah?!  Well, get ready to squeal because those are babies on her back.

Wouldn't you know Big Sissy, Bebe, and I were dancing around like fools in the living room (even the dog was getting in on the fun) when I dropped to my knees in my Jerry Lee Louis dramatic flare only to shoot up like a rocket because this spider was centimeters from my knee.  YIKES!  The picture makes her appear small, but she was at least the size of a quarter.  I think she's a common garden spider-maybe a wolf spider so no harm, but I smacked her just the same.  Can't have these creepy crawlies in my house even though she was adding nicely to our festive decor.

I don't think I've ever seen a spider with babies on its back! I don't like them, either! And your husband looks waaaay better than Nicholas Cage!
