spider ~Celebrate Halloween with Spiders!!!

Let's get into the Halloween spirit by posting our best spider shots between now and Halloween!

If anyone would like to step up and run it as a "fun contest" (nothing serious, no prizes) please proclaim yourself "Judge & Jury"!

Just to get this started... ~Celebrate Halloween with Spiders!!!-p1070558-1ed.jpg

Note: When Sage starts it, anything goes! Be as unruly as you want! After all, it's just for Halloween fun!

Your only spidey is better than mine. I think we're at the tail end of spideys unless I can find something hanging out in our house. Our forecast is for snow this weekend.

Sandals to work... that hurt. The pain. The agony. Snow in the forecast for me too. Here's one of our spiders. I found it on a railing last night. I wasn't happy since I don't turn lights on to go to bed. Surprise... they've started decorating for Halloween. It's no match for Sage's beauty but it's all I've got. There aren't even any moths flitting around our back door light any more.

I wore a life size crow on my shoulder one Halloween. That was fun. It looked real too. I never thought of wearing a spider on my head. I don't know if it would get the same effect with the kids all being older but it would have been fund ten years ago to try to get a rise out of them. They put up another spider on the other staircase going up. It's too dark to get a photo of it but it's a better spider than the one I posted. Ya, sandals in October is the sign of someone who needs twenty whips with a wet noodle don't ya think?
