Variety

Some of you have been following the blog for long enough to know there are more critters living around here than just cats.

We’ve got a large flock of wild turkeys, who like to congregate in the streets and extort protection money from drivers.

There are several deer who often use the open space behind the house for their jousts.

And then there’s this lady.

17-1

I’m sorry I couldn’t get a closeup shot. She really is a lovely slightly-translucent brown.

Very hardworking, too. She built this web overnight, right after the last set of storms ended.

We have an agreement with the spiders: if they stay outside, we won’t sic the exterminators on them.

By and large, they keep the treaty well, though I do occasionally find one in the bathroom and get Maggie to take it outside. I don’t worry about small violations like that.

However, climbing into the bed and exploring my ear is cause for immediate reprisals.

We had another storm Wednesday night, and Thursday morning the web was gone. I do hope the spider is OK.
