Along Came a Spider…

SpiderImagine my excitement when I moved the couch and found this spider web filled with dead flies on a windowsill.  The spider herself was nowhere to be found, but damn, she’s been busy. 

I am fortunate to be married to a man who doesn’t even blink when his wife, upon finding a mass grave of bugs in the house, says, "Wait!  Let me get the camera."  I asked if we could keep them; Scott agreed that they could stay until next time we vacuumed.  Given the fact that the Roomba doesn’t  do walls, I think my enterprising spider is  safe for a while.

And now I learn that one can actually buy houseflies on the Internet to feed to their pet spiders.  What a glorious world we live in.
