I'm going to list my 8 facts over several posts and, hopefully, illustrate each one.
Random Fact #1 - I LIKE spiders! Well, I should say I have more of a 'you leave me alone and I'll leave you alone' kinda relationship with them. I do think they play an integral role in our environment by helping to keep the insect population down so I refuse to kill a spider unless it is venomous and a threat. We tend to get the occasional Huntsman spider popping in for a visit and my kids know not to kill them so, when they see one, they usually call in the big guns......ME! With the help of a broom, I manage to give the spider a free ride out of the house....no harm done. Well.....gulp.....there was this one time that a Mr Huntsman refused to cooperate and climb onto the broom willingly. It happened to be on the wall beside my sleeping daughter's bed and was completely defiant! I won't go into what happened next but let me just say I still bear a guilty conscience about it to this very day.
