Our friend, Charlotte

This is our friend, Charlotte:
She lives in the corner of our sliding glass door frame
on the OUTSIDE, of course.
Now, I'm not a big fan of spiders,
but since this one is outside,
and we rarely use the door except to go out and BBQ
and since she's quite facinating to watch,
we've decided to keep her.
Now just to put it in perspective,
this is her next to a quarter;
just so you can see how big she really is:
(now mind you, she is about 1-2 inches from the outside of the window
the quarter is on the inside)
but just so you can get an idea -

I always wonder if one morning I'll wake up
and find a word written in her web.
We don't know what kind of spider she is
I can't look at the spider pictures for too long
before I start to get the willies...

In fact, I'm getting them now...
time to move on...

I got the willies trying to read that post!!! That thing needs to go! I'm sure it can find a new home somewhere else!!!

What a fun pet for your kids!! :)
I think (and I could be totally wrong) but I think it looks like a cat-face spider. Which this will make you feel happy, I have been told that they eat other spiders!! So in that case I would love to have one of those on my house somewhere!! :):)

Yikes! That would freak me out. I'd tell Daniel to kill it because I would be convinced he would get in the house one day. But hey, glad you don't have those fears. Enjoy your...uh...spider.
