This is for Gretchen!
Yesterday, a Tarantula was sleeping above our front door during the day. Earlier in the day I chased a lizard out of our garage that had been in there for more than a week. I think he was dying for lack of food. So anyway, when he ran out, he ran up the wall by the front door. As I looked up, I saw the spider. I think the lizard had a death wish or something. I went back in to get my camera and the lizard had made his escape.
By the way, Spiders are considered good luck on a Crazy Quilt so I see him as good luck for our home.
