Spiders..

... today, just to prove a point, I am off on a mini-safari with Joe of Drunken Wisdom... I promised him a while back that when he next visited me, we'd endeavor to scare us up a snake for the sake of good blogfodder... but being the girlyman he is, he squeaked like a squished mouse and fled into another room... so today, well, we'll safari for something different... the target?... a nice, fat, juicy black widow spider... surely the man isn't scared of spiders too...

.... the goal is simply to photograph a large female in her natural habitat and then leave her in peace... and, of course, gauge the reaction of my fellow blogger whilst we are on the hunt...

... the scary thing is, I feel quite confident... oh no, not that Joe can handle it... on the contrary... I feel quite confident we're actually going to find a black widow...

... I'll be sure to keep y'all posted... and just in case he faints or gets heart palpitations, I laid on two cases of beer yesterday evening... it's chilling nicely in the garage fridge... and it should be tasty and cold by the time he needs medical attention....

Hell Eric, I'll bet you he'd have gone "snipe huntin'" with you last night if you'd have only asked him to. Heck, that might be a good question at about dusk this evenin'.... Just be sure you give him good directions on how to hunt snipe, and how to use the bag... ;) Now that'd be some fodder for sure.

.. I am nice, Lisa... that's why I'll leave the spider in peace once I've taken a few snaps.. there is already too much violence in this crazy ole world....

... good point, Redneck... I'll let you know how that turns out...

Just make sure he gets some time with some cats. He LOVES cats. Don't let him fool you. Ask him about his favorite cats, too. Something about some sisters.

Snipe hunting, ahhhhh sweeet memories.......

I think every guest should be treated to that most wonderful of activities. There ain't nutt'n better'n the woods at night....

Don't forget to provide the snipe stick... you know? the one that looks kinda like a badmitten racket?

Oh, and a nice little whistle for faking..errr I mean mimicking the call of the elusive snipe.

'Sides, you wouldn't REALLY want'a lose'm in the woods. Would you??

we want to know what is on the menu, although a trip into town might be due. That Sports Lounge did have cold beer, and hot wings

Y'all have fun.
