Someone should care, maybe not you....

My thoughts on many things including the army, war, politics, the military corrections system, chaos, life, books, movies, and why there is no blue food. Feel free to comment on what I say. Feedback is nice.

Found in the yard (Arachniphobes beware)

Garden spiders. I have two of them. One on the screen door of my back porch and the other on the hydrangea bush in the front yard.
These would be enough to send certain friends of mine screaming for the hills. Personally, I think they are cool.

Here we call them "Writing Spiders" and they are supposed to bring good luck. You've got two!

I didn't have a camera, but when I looked up from water aerobics in our pool, I had a similar spider, about two inches in diameter paddling along beside me in the water.. I splashed him out onto the bank. I don't care if he is good luck.

I am the official spider killer for the house. As long as they're outside, they're fine. But since Mrs. Z is allergic to spiders, I have to kill them if they come inside the house.

Once, I was playing hide and seek in Colorado and saw a huge red spider. It was entirely red. Ugliest thing I've ever seen. I went and hid elsewhere.

I'm just getting over a spider bite this past week, so they're out of favor at the moment.
