Now I do not have to post my spider! It is this one, but I found mine on an outside window. We take our spiders out, if we can, but I might have had a little scream if I found mine by my pillow.

Me, too! I like spiders, overall, and I always take them outside, but definitely not on my pillow!

I found a spider in my bed when I was making it the other day. I wonder if it slept with me?
