when i pulled into my sister's driveway on friday evening, the first thing i noticed was the funnel web in the middle of her front yard. this was sort of a problem for me, but i suppressed the need to google until the following afternoon. but of course, of course, the first link that google coughed up was a month-old local news story about how some local yokel may have found an australian funnel web spider, one of the deadliest spiders known to man, in his driveway. normal, harmless, apple-pie eatin' american spiders make funnel webs too, right? someone respond to this immediately.
and last week my sister had to pop a tick off of her daughter. arkansas is the living jungle. i probably should have taken anti-malarial drugs.
love ya, hil! let's go to nordstrom. in dallas.
