I put up post #1937 with a picture of a spider web. I saw it but now it's gone. What's going on???


It looked like this:

That's the one I saw - I went back to look at it today to comment on what a pretty pic it was, and it was gone..

Random Photo Thread: The Sequel

Well, the consensus is, we have no idea. Thankfully, Andy was able to repost his pic!

Checked on my girl, she's busy reconstructing her web. Sadly as much as I try, I can't get her beautiful coloring in a pic.

She hangs out on the top of the door trim during the day. I think there's an egg sac up there.

While walking to the store one day I say a beautiful spider with various meals caught in her perfect web. Unfortunately I didn't have my camera with me. Today every phone has a camera. And I always make sure I have mine with me. Not for the phone calls, but for what wonder I may see.

I was dusting and re-arranging display frames today, and thought I'd share a few magnificent native American finds while I was out walking in these parts.

Very nice, Cheryl! Unfortunately, now that you have 'fessed up to having native artifacts in your possession, someone from the Department-of-You-Shouldn't-Have-That Police will be by to pick them up. And, maybe, you. If we don't see you around these parts for a while, we'll take a collection, form a posse, and come get ya!

Those are very cool, Chery! I inherited a few from my grandparents.

We have a friend, who kind of lives "off the grid" who knaps his own arrowheads.

I knew someone would call me on that! These were from 20 plus years ago and on private property. Nowadays, I won't even grab a nice rock for my rock garden or pick a desert flower.
