"Ms. Tarantula, Ms. Tarantula!!" "Is that a baby bump??" "Are you, in fact, pregnant?!"
"Go away, can't you see it's raining? I'm getting wet!"

"Were you and Mr. Tarantula trying to get pregnant?" "Sources tell us that he isn't living in your burrow!"
"No comment, now get out of the way!!"


"Will you be......aaaaahhhh, don't touch the camera!" "Dang, I don't know if I'll get that grass stain out of my linen skirt!" "I wonder if my camera is broken?"

"That was a good interview." "She's so nice and down to earth. Maybe she'll invite me to lunch." "I wonder how much People and Us magazine will pay me?"

  2. Does that mean you were actually laying on the ground taking those pictures CeeCee? Okay, I'm freaking out. ;)

  3. Holy Cow Cee Cee--Are you sure you don't live in some tropical rainforest somewhere?? I am not familiar with the critters that live in Texas and I am assuming this is one of the natural residents but WOW...that is just creepy. I never, ever want to see a tarantula, even in a case much less in my yard. Baby tarantulas--even worse :)LOL

  4. Lol, that's crazy! When we lived in PR we learned that where there's one tarantula, there's more!

  5. Warren, did you read my comment in your "About/Comment" section on your blog. I spell it out very clearly about freaky stuff in Texas. :)

    Yes Justine, I was on the ground. Tarantulas look freaky, but are fairly harmless. They have no interest in biting humans.

    Amy, I've never seen a baby tarantula. They always show up as grown-ups. Yes, they are natural wonders--bad bug eating machines. They love to eat scorpions, and I'm all for that.

    Lynn, I'm racking my brain and can't figure out where "PR" is. Our tarantulas are solitary, and you only see them a couple times of year.

  6. Sorry Justina, I hit an "e" instead of the "a" for your name. :)

  8. Beverly, tomorrow I'll post a picture of my office assistant and all will be right in the universe again. I'm about out of creepy critters to post about, although Warren might disagree. :)

  10. Cee Cee, as a gardener and nature lover I can pretty much handle any bug that comes across my path, but let me tell you, that thing almost made me run out of the room screaming! AWFUL!!! I have to give you credit for getting that close tho, because if that was in my yard I would STILL be hiding under the covers!

  11. Thanks Penny, I knew you'd like it.

    Kent Island, come on, I gave fair warning at the top of the page. :) The fact that you said you'd hide under the covers and didn't say you'd squish it, makes me a very happy girl.
