Oh man I loved that movie when I was a kid.
I actually never minded spiders when I was young. But then something changed somewhere (don't remember when) and now I am terrified of them.
I came close to being bitten by a Redback in NSW Australia back in 1985 while visiting a cemetary. Had a shower with a tarantuala (white one that
never seen the sun) in the outback. LOL It was on the wall of the shower. I never seen it until I was part way into my shower. Yeah I bolted out of
Then nearly 16 years ago I was bitten on the wrist by a Wolf spider in BC. I was wearing garden gloves too and was tending my rose bushes. I saw that
my wrist was inflamed but I thought I was pricked by thorns. The next day my vein was a strange color and the line went from my wrist to the inner
side across my elbow (where they usual extract blood with needles - soft part.) I had to get a needle for the venom.
Then a couple of years ago here in Saskatchewan while I was upstairs in my studio running my radio show with guest Brian Vike on the line, an adult
male Brown Recluse spider tried to attack me. (Thank god for my quick reflexes) I never knew those dang spiders were in our parts.
A couple days after that I was running my bath water. I went to remove the facecloth which was hung over the water spout but changed my mind. Turned
around to undress and then heard a loud splash in the water. I turned and saw another recluse. Apparently it was hiding under the face cloth. When the
water got too hot it jumped and landed into the water. Had I picked that cloth up it would have got me.
I tell you, I could not sleep for a long time because I was so paranoid that one was going to get me. I really don't like them.
Sorry for the stories! LOL. I didn't mean to get off track. I have always noticed young spiders use the wind to travel with their threads.
as they do it away from my face when I am walking around outside.
