Last night we decided to pack up at night before we went to bed, so we could wake up in the morning and start Turtling down to La Penita.
We brought in the table and the lawn chairs...after dark.
About an hour later Gerry nearly jumped through the roof...."What the heck was that on me?" he yells as he sweeps something off his shoulder....onto his leg. "Holy crap!" he says as he sweeps it off his leg and onto the blanket hanging off the side of the bed.
"Don't move!" he barks at me. I was sitting on the bed, and very curious indeed.
He slid a plate under the spider and folded the blanket up onto it....and squished it. He opens the blanket again...and it is none the worse! Now I have a very good view of the biggest spider I have ever seen in my life! He tries to squish it again, slowly opens the blanket up...and the dang thing has one leg broken off and is still trying to escape! Again and again he squishes it, until finally all it's legs are gone, and it is still squirming!
Yikes!!!! Lesson learned. NEVER EVER bring things inside after dark. NEVER EVER bring things inside without examining it for unwanted varmints.
