Spider Attack!

Hi Everybuddy -

It's a very cold and rainy day here today. A very good day to stay inside and be grateful for a roof.
We had some commotion last night. Mom took Meeka upstairs as usual. Since he's the Prince he gets to lie on the waterbed for awhile and watch the news. Whatever. Anywoo - all of a sudden Mom yelled for Dad to come and save her! Woo! This is what happened:

Mom saw a GIANT spider! She thinks it hitched a ride on Dad's shirt which had been hanging to dry in the laundry room. What's worse is that Mom carried it upstairs! She didn't like that thought at all. Mom's usually a trooper around bugs and stuff but this one was "HUGE!" and was ready to eat her alive she said! Where was Meeka, the protector you ask? This is what he looked like:

Hmmmm. He doesn't appear to be too concerned there does he? She said that's pretty much the expression he had on his fuzzy mug at the time and through the entire attack he never moved a muscle. Meeka didn't save her. This did :

Unfortunately she won't be ordering from that catalog anytime soon. Blech! I sure hope it wasn't the Drs. Foster and Smith catalog! Oh - and we probably should acknowledge Dad's bravery too. Although he did mention the spider wasn't quite as gigantic as Mom had described. Mom said he wasn't looking at it from the same angle. She was very relieved it was gone and was no longer headed towards her side of the bed.

Oh - I want to remind everybuddy that it's time to buy Grrrl Scout cookies! They really are very yummy and they support a very good cause. We have a fun poll on the right sidebar to see which ones are everybuddy's favorites.

Very clever blog post! Shame on Meeka for not rushing to your aid, too. Just when you need a dashing knight in shining armor!

I'd probably do the same as Meeka. As a matter of fact I have. I just thought Mom was crazy. Mom has a size limit on her bugs, too. If she thinks it's too big she yells for Dad. If Dad's not home it's really funny to watch.

Well, we sure wouldn't order from that catalog! Must have been an atomic spider if it was that biiiiig. Glad your mom saved the world.

My mom screams at spiders and makes dad come kill them too. I would have eaten it.

Meeka may not have killed the spider, but he DOES look very cute! :)

Hi, Echo!
My mom is afraid of spiders too! I am sure I can take care of them but she doesn't let me do that! A catalog is a good weapon!
Kisses and hugs
