Mighty-Mommy Tackles the Beastie as Reported by Juneau

I heard mommy on the phone with daddy when she came home to let Cosi & me out at lunchtime. She told him that when she got to the back door to come in there was a huge web from the siding to the frame of the back door & down to our grill which is kept right outside the back door. A big thick hairy colorful spider was on the web & skidaddled into the siding near the door frame. Mommy went on to tell daddy that she picked up one of Joshua’s tools, a rubber mallet, & using it got rid of the web. After leaving us outside in the side run, she went to look for bug spray. Of course when she needed it, it wasn’t under the sink! So mommy went & got her hairspray & went outside to tackle the ‘hairy beastie!’ She sprayed the hairspray in the crack of the siding & the spider came out like it was drunk. She used more hairspray on the thingee & then hit it with the rubber mallet. That unwelcomed spider never had a chance!!! I would’ve protected mommy from the spider thingee. I like to chase & eat bugs. They don’t have much of a taste though. She probably wouldn’t have let me at it cuz she always worries when I put sumthing other than food, my toys, or Cosi (when I wrestle & play wif him) in my mouth. Nope, her next job won’t be a buggy killer cuz she usually screams for daddy or Josh to kill them.

Oh Juneau, my mom thinks your mom is very brave to get rid of that spider. She's afraid of them since she got bit and had to go to the doctor. She really likes the hair spray idea and then finishing it off with the mallet. She agrees the bug spray is never where it's supposed to be when you need it).

We had a bumble bee in the house incident (and dad did not belive her). She found it in her sewing box and you should have heard her scream. I tried to catch it, but it kept flying around our room.

Wow, how heroic of your human to kill that nasty spider! My mom hates them too and always keeps a can of bug spray on hand just for them!

Whooohooo, your mommy is brave, one of my posts is about our moms' fear of spiders, and how we all thought she was totally fearless until she walked into a web in the dark. Her mallet would probably look something like a sledgehammer and leave a hole in the bricks on the side of our house....

Wooo, there's been lots going on at your place! Is your mom feeling better now? We're going to post a soup recipe for her soon, OK?
Your mom is so cool to whack a bug! I love that! What a woman!!! Dave caught a cicada yesterday; mom didn't seem too thrilled with him. In fact, she seemed to want it herself, as she grabbed it out of his mouth and took it. She didn't even sit first or anything. Hrumph!

What a wonderful Mom to protect you from that nasty, creepy, crawly buggy. Our boy found a Black Widow Spider today in a crate of grapes he was unpacking at work. It was almost dead already thank dogness! Mom said she saw it yesterday. She didn't bring it home for us to see!

The Daily Echo said...

Woo...Mom needs to pay attention to what she writes....HARROOOO! He found it 2 days ago and she saw it yesterday. DUH! I think the sun got to her today.

My Mom got bit on the BUTT once by a big spider & it swelled up and left a giant red ring on her.

Your Mom is very brave to kill the hairy beast.
