daddy long legs

long thin wiry protuberances from his belly scooting up the wall long after the screams die out

As Frank Zappy might have said: 'Hungry Freaks, Daddy.' (c. 1964). :) gw

lol the screams... so true. I am the spider hunter or scorpion killer on hand around here. I rather let them go when I can, but there are limits... boundaries... This was a fun write... I love fun words about bugs any time. Have a wonderful night. Ann

One of my favorite spiders. I learned as a kid that grandaddy longlegs were the good guys, black widows mean, and tarantulas to be given their space. :) Linda

LOL. So many times I've seen that, and rooms not used for weeks on end in case the hairy one was still within.

Yikes. It's a spider! I'm so scared. Beats me how a little insect can put such fear into people. :) gw
