Yesterday morning while I was in the bathroom brushing my teeth, I noticed her just staring at the threshold between the laundry room and the hallway. Walking over to where she was, I saw what she was focused on. A motionless spider apparently had become her latest victim.
When I told the Pres of her latest conquest, he said, " It's about time she earned her keep."
Did I tell you about a friend of ours and his recent discovery? Our friend had done some yard work near a well wooded area and a few days later, after detecting swelling and pain on either side of his spine, he went to the ER. It was lanced and "cleaned". Days later he went to his doctor still complaining of pain and swelling. After telling him that the woman who treated him in the ER should be fired, his doctor drained a half cup of black dead tissue from his back, saying that if he'd waited until after the Memorial holiday weekend, the venom could have impacted the nerves in his spine. He'd been bitten by a Brown recluse spider.
just seeing, saying, and sharing...
