You know, V, that's just plain, well... not real smart woman! I'm saying that because I like you though.

Here's my tale: My mom never had a bad reaction to a bee or wasp sting other than local swelling, but two years ago, she got stung in the garden, barely made it to the house and couldn't push the buttons on the phone to dial 911. My dad was out of the house and by the time he got there, she had crawled to her bed. By the time she went to the hospital, the doctors couldn't figure out why she didn't die and *promised* her that she wouldn't get a second chance. Now, since you KNOW you are allergic, you really need to carry your epipen. You've mentioned b4 that you don't take it with you, but the thing is so dang small, there really isn't an excuse. Don't forget, if, heaven forbid, the awful should happen to you, the people that love you will be far more affected by your passing than you will be. Oh, and btw, from everyone I've met that has bad reactions to insect bites/stings -- it gets worse with time, not better. I fully expect to need my own epipen within the next 10 years. The last sting I got put my entire right arm out of commission for a day.

Very pretty! Interesting how two of her legs are so much shorter -- I guess to hold her dinner better! I find most bugs very interesting. I have even gotten over the "sticky legs" on June bugs that totally freaked me out as a kid. About the only local bugs I avoid touching now are the giant water beetles because they bite & bees and wasps because they sting. I really have a problem with pain

I'm not a big insect person, but I just love spiders for some reason! I had a tarantula once and she was so much fun!!! That spider had such amazing colors!

I agree with NM... Please carry your epi pen.

I like the yellow and black garden spiders... We catch nasty grasshoppers and feed them to the spiders.

My sister had a tarantula... It was pretty...but yucky all at the same time. I wasn't sad when her cat ate it.

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

They are nearly pet size! I think they are called Corn Spiders.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.
