Just finished watching the local news and thought this was a great idea to help abused animals.

Today is a total rest day seeing as my sciatica is acting up something fierce as is the arthritis in my right hand.

So, I am in my recliner playing with the Moto 360 watch my hubby surprised me with this morning. It came in the mail while I was sleeping so he was able to get it charging before I woke up. He is amazing and wonderful.

Cool.

I wonder if they will let pets have an attorney when someone claims they were bitten or attacked by the pet. Pets are are often killed with no evidence, in that kind of situation.

Ugh...another fire in SoCal. I just talked to my daughter, they live down there in Santa Clarita. My son-in-law is one of the several hundred firefighters out there right now trying to contain this fire.

Yikes, Cheryl! Hope all goes well, and they get the fires under control.

I escorted a huge spider, the likes of which I'd never seen before, from inside to outside into the hydrangea. It was leopard spotted and slow moving, and looked nothing like a wolf spider. The abdomen was the size of a small grape. I was able to pick it up with a paper towel.

Oh please Dear God, send some rain to California. Not just a shower, but enough to end the plight that the people are in.

Thanks Dawg and Addie.

Wow, Dawg! That was one big spider. Glad you got him (or her) outside where it belongs.

I haven't seen a spider in years. But don't send me any. I am happy with the way things are right now.

My in-laws used to pay me to go to their house and kill the spiders. All of them were terrified of them. One day my sister-in-law called me. When I arrived, she was sobbing. The bush just outside her door was covered with spiders. She needed to go shopping and couldn't get past the bush. She was afraid they would jump on her. What I couldn't kill, I knocked off the bush and off the went to find another place to hang out. When I lived in Texas, I would tell my husband there was a large water bug or roach on the wall. He would slap it with his hand. If I said there was a spider, he was out the door and would be gone for hours. Then he would call before he would come home and wanted to make sure the spider was dead and gone.
