Hello all, welcome again to summer re-post Wednesday! I had been cut off from the world without internet for a day there, it's amazing how attached we are - I was beginning to worry about getting this post up (my i-phone won't connect to "Blogger"...) but the handy dandy cable guys just left and all is right in the world again!

Really it was fascinating, she grabbed the loose ends, made a few
web piles like cocoons and then receded to the safety of the clothes pin.
She probably was scolding me in spider talk the whole time - Damn that little
