The Great Spider Hunters

Our new house is awesome! The backyard is big, fenced, lush with green grass, and full of THESE!!

(Click to make it big, but beware, it's scary!) :o

We LOVE to hunt spiders and anything else that crawls or buzzes our heads, for that matter! :)

Now, Momma isn't as impressed with this amenity as we are. She doesn't much like arachnids! (Can you tell that Dally's been sneaking peeks at Momma's "Word of the Day" calendar?)

Anyhoo...we don't mind these varmints being in our yard, but we ARE miffed at the chutzpah (from the "Yiddish Word of the Day" calendar) they showed in climbing into OUR swimming pool?!?!

So, Reggie and Peyton had to fetch them out while Dallas supervised the extermination.

Whew! Now it's safe to go back into the water!

(A supervisor's job is NEVER done!) ;)

  1. Oy Gevelt!!! That's a HUGE spider!!!!!

    I enjoy eating them too...I find they have a piquant flavor like nothing else!

    Your new yard IS awesome! Do you need a pool boy for the summer??? ;-)

    Kisses to all,


  2. Ahhhh spiders! Sequoia likes to eat em, but I rahter not touch them, eeww. We hope you all get rid of those scary eight leggy things.

  3. Spiders? I'm not sure what they are. Mommy wants me to tell you that she doesn't think I see them. Hmm...I guess not. I love your pool! It's just like mine! Hope you're enjoying your summer so far!

  4. Yes, Sal, we do need a pool boy! Come on over! We miss you!

    Tuni: Dally doesn't like them either, that's why he supervises the hunts. :) But, Peyton and Reggie LOVE them!

    Apollo: It's a good thing you don't see them! That just means you have more time to spend on better things like eating and sleeping! :)

  5. We are happee you are enjoying your new house. We think you better charge rent to that monstrous spider.
