that's a good story! here's what stopped me from being terrified of black widows. they're easy to find and kill. and what a satisfying splat they make. i live with many and i used to be terrified of them. but not anymore due to the killing and the splatting. now dust, yeah that scares me no end...

I hate black widows. If you get bit once, there's a serum. But it doesn't work twice. We have them here also. We also have Brown Recluse that refuse to be reclusive. I'm just going to start referring to them as Brown.

I hate to tell all these spider lovers how many I've killed recently. They creep me out too much. Blech!

Oh sweet Lord in his heaven.

THAT is exactly why I do not retrieve marbles from dark places.


I seriously don't like spiders! I get all itchy just looking at the pictures.

Kyddryn -

Thank goodness someone has some sense about themselves in dealing with spiders. The spider is a homes best line of defense against bugs that are really bad.

The giant mutant spider that attacks whole towns only exist in the movies....for the sole purpose of giving a girl the excuse to snuggle closely with her beau.

.....oh never mind, I figured it out (finally). Anyone want to go to the movies? :)


Oh, my, what a beauty!

I won't let anyone kill spiders 'round here - I pick them up and move them. Yep, even Brown Recluse and Black Widow spiders.

I don't mind if someone displaces the dust, though...they're welcome to it.

A nice layer of dust give furniture a nice sheen .. kind of like the patina that years of use gives to fine silverware. I've even heard it increases the value.

Also, from dust we came, and to dust we shall return. I don't want to stir up Aunt Marcella.

The only thing disturbing about that: I REALLY think there's somebody either coming or going under our bed.


OMG - you have to check out the huge sucker of a black widow I found on MY house last month. I had never seen ONE in my whole life in person... and this has an egg sac... got great pics of it before it was destroyed with glee.

Hey, dustophobia is a very real, valid fear. I have a similar ailment; its unofficial name is Domestic Disability which causes dust and spider webs to accumulate until it's nigh on impossible to discern whether you're inside a house or inside a barn.

I'm afraid of marbles. Losing them, that is.
