How do you get them to hold still long enough to put the collar on?

But I don't like spiders!

I'm with ya there Charlie. I think that some snakes even eat spiders so I'm fine with snakes, but spiders make me shudder. I make Teddy kill them for me, even the little tiny ones. I just don't think that critters should have more than four legs. There are two kinds of spiders, those that are poisonous and those that are poisonous.
:xx
And while we're on the subject ''EARWIGS'' ugh!

Just have a chat with them

When we first moved into our 200+ year old house it was over run with those huge black spiders (well actually only about 5). Now if there is a spider in the bedroom at night and I don't see evidence of the dead body after someone supposedly kills it for me, I cannot sleep. I honestly feel like I'm crawling. Can you tell I'm scaired S---less of spiders.

Well anyways, after finding all these big black ones I braved going down into our cellar. I'm talking a hole in the ground, regulation ancient cellar complete with zillions of cobwebs. So I went down to the cellar, shaking all the way, and sat on the floor to have a chat with the spiders. I told them they could have the whole cellar to themselves....that I would never ever venture into the cellar...but they had to stay out of the main part of the house.

Ok, so now I know you all are shaking your heads thinking the poor womans gone bonkers, but it worked! We didn't have a spider in the main part of our house for about 10 years. I kid you not!

They were probably as scared of you as you, them.

Can you imagine?

They're minding their own business, there in the dark cellar, when in comes this human person, shaking like a leaf.

And she begins to make noises, incomprehensible noises.

When she finally goes away, those spiders probably figured out they were better off staying put than venturing out after her.

Ok, Nancy, I'll try that.

I'll swing by the trailer today, and tell the spiders they can have the outside of the trailer ... but ask them to please stay out of the inside of the trailer.

We've also had an "explosion" of West Nile-laden mosquitos in the area (according the news this am), so the conditions must have been "just right" for bugga-boos.

>>if you would go camping more

Ouch, ouch, someone pull the arrow out of my heart!

Don't you think I know that, Jana? It pains me greatly to see any cute little fiberglass rig sit still for more than a couple of weeks ... and it especially pains me to see my trailer not move!

Luckily, we're headed out for Labor Day weekend.

And a professor friend of mine from Ball State University just emailed me with a plan to meet at Turkey Run State park in early October.

And then we have Columbus Day weekend ... where we're torn between the Burgoo Festival at Utica ... or a quiet three night on the Mississippi.

And my pig farmer friend wants a re-enactment of the Great Pig Farm campout after harvest time. (You want to stay up wind on that one.).

And then, praise the Lord, winter camping season will be here.:winter

I hate bugs. Especially bugs that bite. Spiders eat bugs that bite. I like spiders. Unless they bite me, but we don't have those where I live. I don't kill spiders. In fact, I encourage them to build webs around my house.

Now, I have friends who live in Australia. They have some serious spiders there so I'm quite certain I'd modify my rule if I lived in Australia.

Snakes and spiders are our friends! They eat all sorts of pesky critters like flies, skeeters, moles, mice and rats!!

Wait -- RATS!?!?

Forget about snakes being our friends -- they are EVIL and should be killed on sight!!! Everybody should run out right now and buy a garden hoe and sharpen it and keep it handy to kill the darned things...
