Definitely NOT Margrette

I looked out the window and what did I see?
NOT popcorn popping on the apricot tree....
A Spider.
Why don't I like them? 
Well, everyone tells me I should, mainly because they eat other bugs.  What other bugs, do I ask?  Cute little lady bugs, innocent flies, pesky mosquitos, and anything else that can get caught in there web.
I am feeling a tickle on my neck.... just a hair.  It's all good.

So one very nice day, I looked out my window and I see a black wolf spider hanging out nonchalantly as if I wouldn't notice her new habitation.  I tried to ignore her as the days went on, then finally I gave in and decided to name the darn thing. 
Her name was Margrette.  

Margrette started to grow on me and I didn't mind her as much as when I first discovered her.   So one morning I looked out the window to see what good ole' Margrette was up to, and to my surprise a stupid, nasty, dumb, much larger spider was in her web.  Margrette was no where to be found.  He is brown and nasty and I am going to kill him.  His hame is Willy and I don't like him.  He ate Margrette.   It's a spider eat spider world out there.  

(I don't think you want to see the pics from this murder scene,  I will spare your eyes)


  1. All I have to say is that you are quite brave. If I saw a spider hanging out even on the other side of my window I would make sure Kurt would get rid of it. Down here in AZ I don't see too many big spiders, but I know they are still around.

    P.S. I sent you revised writing sample. If you want to read something completely different just let me know.

  2. Thanks for this ghoulish glimpse of spiders in nature. I laughed and cried. (Okay, not really. But I did laugh!)
