Not for the faint hearted

Ok so most of you know I have been talking to Neptune for a while now, since 2nd September to be precise. One recurring topic has been spiders. We have both been plagued with these little beauties (house spiders) this summer. We also have plenty of these, stretching their webs across the garden path.......ewwww. Seeing as they are known as garage spiders why are they in the garden?
Oh yeah the garage door has been out of use for months.

We have discussed ways of getting rid of the house spiders, I think Neptune would like one of these, I know my kids would.


I have heard on my radio that these are good for getting rid of spiders although I have no idea how or why.


I expect we will soon see lots of these little plastic spiders everyhere as the halloween hype kicks in.

I quite like the look of this little lady.


I decided to find a picture to tease Neptune with and came up with this one.


when I am not busy or I am mulling something over in my head, a new post or a short story or maybe something less important like a letter to the bank or council, I play this game a lot. During the break up of my marriage I played it for hours on end. I would put on my headphones and listen to music and play spider. It meant I didn't have to think about things or participate in what was going on around me. It drove SF mad that I would do this, but it was preferable to listening to him.


Wouldn't I just love one of these babies and look its in red too........every picture I found of the Alpha Romeo Spider showed a red one, maybe they don't make them in other colours.

The Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder is also a hot little sports car.

Living in a 117 year old house with a basement that has a couple of wall of dirt/stone and in one section a crawlspace that is dirt ... I have a lot of spiders as well. I don't bother them and they leave me alone. Before a woman (any woman) comes to visit I do try to rid the house of as many as possible. Perhaps I might rethink that scenario ... maybe I'll invite them all in before she arrives ... then the scream followed by jumping into my arms ... yeah that's much better

I dont mind spiders, providing they're not tarantulas crawling over my hand/body. Im currently dealing with mice... far more scary little beasties :(

Lady in red said...

ewww I'm ok with spiders but mice!!! the street would hear about them ......I would be screeching and trying to get away as though there was an axe murderer after me

Vi vi vi vooom!!!!!!!! said...

Red cars go faster.

Chopski said...

You spend a lot of time on the web you're going to bump into lots of spiders. Lots of other insects too!!

Lady in red said...

Vi how can you say red cars go faster? I was driving a red car when I was late getting to your place lol

I wanted a red car this time but it wasn't to be :-(

DJ Kirkby said...

Spidys, yep we got a load of them in our garden too!

Emma said...

My spider posts seemed to get the most interest for months afterwards....you still could have warned me before I clicked in..xx

Lady in red said...

Rising rainbow welcome to my blog. I am afraid I am more afraid of horses than spiders although having said that one of the things on my to do list is to learn to ride.

emma I didn't know you had posted about spiders maybe I shall have to go see.

apparently there was a tv program about spiders on thursday evening Neptune carefully watched it making mental notes so that he could tell me all about it first thing friday morning......maybe I have caught him in my web after all
