Itsy-Bitsy Spider

Dark Fishing Spider

The itsy-bitsy spider went up the waterspout.
Down came the rain and washed the spider out.
Up came the sun, and dried up all the rain,
and the itsy-bitsy spider went up the spout again.

Yesterday, while Anne was headed back to the Brimley NAPA store, I took a shower. It was only after my shower that I noticed this not so itsy-bitsy spider crawling around the floor off the shower stall. It was big, it was black, and it was hairy. It was easily more than three inches across. Still naked, I pulled a quart sized yogurt container out of the recycling and trapped the spider beneath it. I dug a blue file folder out of the fire-starting heap and was preparing to slide in beneath the yogurt container when I thought that this operation is going to take two hands. How am I going to get the door open too? Soon enough though, Anne returned from the store. She is always rescuing me from bees when they get into the house and now, I can add spiders too.
