I planned on giving you a few updates ..... like about the Black Widow l, Trambodia, Peter Rabbit and the vegetable garden, and my brush with fame........well I still am going to....kinda.
Black Widow & Babies Update:
As of last night, Momma Black Widow was STILL ALIVE!
The whole "catch the offending creature in a jar with no air or food or water" was a HUGE mistake. I had know idea that she would bear children and live forever!
A month has gone by.
She FINALLY died some time in the wee hours of morning.
But what now? What about the egg sack, ball, nest thingy?
I do have one friend of a friend of a reader who is NOT HAPPY that I am not planning on releasing 60 baby black widows into the wild.
He is really offended and upset. Evidently, he plays his clarinet and violin for HIS pregnant black widown in captivity and then drives somewhere where black widows are revered and appreciated and sets them free. Oh please, oh please don't let him find out about this.
Seriously, this is an INSECT (okay - arachnid) DISASTER.
Why, oh why, couldn't have just done the right thing and smash the black widow with a rock?
