Itsy Bitsy Spider

30 Sep


The itsy bitsy spider climbed up the water spout

Down came the rain and washed the spider out

Out came the sun and dried up all the rain

And the itsy bitsy spider climbed up the spout again

Kind of a catchy tune isn’t it?  Mom went outside to get the mail.  When she came back in, she was mumbling something, grabbed her cell phone and went back outside.  This piqued my interest.  What the heck was mom up to?

When she came back in, I could smell nature on her.  And, I could smell the heat.  Shivers, I don’t like the heat.  I’ll take my air conditioned room any day.  🙂

Well, she said she went outside to take a picture of something.  Of course, I had to jump on the couch with her to look at the picture.  Oh THUD!  I will never hear the itsy bitsy song again without this vision popping into my little head.  If *that* is an itsy bitsy spider, we are ALL in trouble my friends.  This thing looked like it had its own zipcode!  Have you ever soon anything this huge??!!

I recognize that sound of you hitting the floor.  I’m sorry.  But you have to admit that it is very colorful.  Mom says it’s a good spider and won’t harm you.  I’m not sure about that.  It looks like it can carry me off.

    Is that a writing spider? They make a zigzag design down their web. We get them too and they do get big, but your Mom’s right (write?) Bacon, they won’t hurt you. But they will catch and eat the other bugs you don’t want around!

      Thank goodness. I like to call this spider Charlotte. I just know she’s going to write me an awesome message. XOXO – Bacon

        We had a Charlotte a year or two ago, too. And a mini-Charlotte!

      Snorts and rolls with piggy laughter. We have those too. But I haven’t seen any for a while. I think they are hiding.

    We like spiders here. They kill ants although now fast enough for mom. We keep all spiders happy but we have very few. I guess my big baa face scares them.

    I saw a similar looking spider up in Wiarton a few weeks ago! I am sure it had its’ own zip code Bacon. I like spiders from afar…..VERY afar!!!!
    Want to come stay with us?
