Theme Thursday for January 17, 2013 - SPIDERS

SPIDERS

This weeks new theme is SPIDERS!

What can I say?
I had to do it.
I had to just go with the flow
and the flow is to spiders.

And I know in a few months my house will be invaded
by spiders.
Big spiders, little spiders, brown spiders, orange spiders,
lots and lots of spiders.
Spiders everywhere.

I guess I need to look up and see if there 
are any natural remedies to get rid of them.
Oh please give me back the ants.
I hate spiders.

What about you, how do you feel about spiders?
Do you have a lot of them?
Do you have a big variety?

I hope you will come back on Thursday 
and let us know all about your spiders.

Thanks again,
Mrsupole

Comments are greatly appreciated. 
 Mr. Linky will be added on Wednesday Evening after 9 pm PST.

    1. Hi Brian,

      I totally know what you mean about them crawling on your skin.

      I once was at a place where I had to look for something in the carpet that had fallen. I got down to look for it and next thing I know there were all these baby spiders jumping on me and biting me. I cannot remember how many bites I had on my face, neck, and chest, but I swelled up and it took a fairly long time to heal. And knowing me, do you think that just happens once, nooooooo, I lean on a fence into a spider nest and the babies bite me again on the neck and chest. I truly am afraid to lean on anything and totally am careful about carpet in old houses.

      Oh I am getting the heebee geebees thinking about them. Ugh!

      God bless.

  2. Unless they are right on me, I love their constant creativity and courage. And they get rid of ants, flys, and other annoying things. (I'll have to send you my signature spinster/spider poem.)

    1. Hi Susan,

      I know what you mean about the right on me thing. I do tend to leave them alone if they stay outside and leave me alone. Although I do try to get rid of the black widows because of the wee wittle ones. And they are so hard to kill. So I have pretty much found that a blow torch seems to be the only thing that works on them. I spray and spray them with Spider Bug Spray and they just laugh in my face. No laughing with the blow torch. But other spiders I leave alone. And those black widows are brave because they usually do not even run or hide from us.

      God bless.

  3. My brothers kitchen ceiling is covered in spiders. His back door opens onto a Scottish loch and he gets a lot of flies so he uses the spiders to keep them down.

    1. Hi Tony,

      My first thought was if he is married and what his wife thinks. Although in Panama we did have lizards living in our houses because they ate the roaches. Although they could not even keep up with them.

      I think I would be okay with the spiders if they totally stayed on the ceiling but I think I would just use fly traps. And has your brother tried the one where you fill up a Ziploc bag with water, add four or five copper pennies and hang them up so the sunlight shines on the pennies. Ever since I hung those up on our backyard patio we have rarely seen any flies. Something about the reflection on the copper pennies confuses the flies and so they go somewhere else. All I can say is that it works. It is a lot better than spiders.

      God bless.

  4. It's a shame that such clever little creatures can be so deadly. Australia has some of the worst.

    1. I have seen stories about some of the spiders you have there and I hope they stay there. Sadly when I was looking at spiders here in California, I did see we have a few transplants from there that are now living well here. But I think the Brown Recluse is still the deadliest transplant that we have here.

      God bless.

    1. Hi Joyce,

      Creepy is good. At least I think it is good during October. And we are only a few months late. Although funny is a lot better. Will be by to visit.

      God bless.

    1. Hi Serena,

      I am so glad that you want to give this one a go. It is always good to have a go at anything, well unless it hurts you.

      God bless.

    1. Hi Emma,

      Good to have a go and I am glad you tried to be understanding to the spiders. They are probably a most misunderstood species. Good thing we do not have any giant ones or giant ants. Both are a lot stronger than we humans.

      God bless.

  8. I bring you an older poem which I revised for today. Forgive me for not writing a new one; I know many of you have seen this before.

    1. Ha, caught you. Just kidding. Anything you do is great with us. Even if you just re-posted it "as is" would be just fine. So no forgiveness needed. Always thankful for anything anyone adds when they play.

      God bless.

    2. Hi Susan,

      I looked for the poem but could not find it. I must be missing something on where to look. Anyway just wanted to let you know that I tried to find it. Please let me know if you post the link.

      God bless.

  9. I've written a poem about being caught in a cobweb of despair and searching. It is a bit away from the prompt, but i start close and the more i wrote the further away i became. But i hope it works. Alan

    1. I think it worked. And anything pretty much goes here. You choose what you want to do with each weeks prompt. Makes it more fun that way.

      God bless.

  10. Yes, watch out for the spiders, their bites are painful. Greetings.

    1. Hi Leovi,

      And you are so right, they do hurt. I have had enough of them in my life to know. Sometimes I think I have a big sign that says "Spider Food" posted on me somewhere. I rarely get mosquito bites but spider bites, now that is another story.

      God bless.
