         For those of you who have been troubled by my spiders, I am happy to annouce that I plan to change my avi

                 and signature pics within the next 24 hours.

    Alas, it's always been my thinking that it is not necessarily the critters that make Halloween the special day

                 it is, but it's the "people" that really bring out the spirit of tricking or treating.  Soon, no more fear, my friends.

        Concluding, I actually wondered if reality could trump fantasy, and the more outward fear over the spiders may

               have proved an interesting yet unimportant factoid.

         In reality, spiders are pretty far down the list in most area's circle of life:

               Accordingly, birds, spider wasps, salamanders, chickens, cats, etc. are above most spiders in the life chain.

                          Also, for Humans, a shoe, rolled up newspaper, coffee cup, etc. handles the "nuisance" when they

                enter into our kitchen cupboards, cars, mailbox, sleeping beds, etc.

Oh, you can keep them Richard. I do not disdain them, only a fear I wish could be gone. Maybe I can get rid of my fear by seeing your posts every day. Also, I do not kill bugs, even if they are in my house. I do my best to catch them and put them outside. Sometimes I have to have DH do it if I freak out too much, lol. I have a deep respect for critters. (=

Okay. I've decided on a compromise that I think will make us all scream, without any "isms" going on...

                      I'm happy to be doing my part in sharing the spirit of the season...
