Now this is an uncanny coincidence, all of my spiders are also named Fred. Who knew?

That's just weird, or somehow we just knew that that is their name. I have wondered about it, 'cause most of the spiders we see are girl-spiders.

I have been known to say, "I found a big Fred in the living room and put it outside."

Yes, mine are also girl spiders, but they're all named Fred. They don't seem to mind.

Welcome Katy! Since you've made it to 40+ posts it looks like we haven't scared you off! Glad to have you here. BTW, you seemed to have missed a checkpoint in your list above. "A bunch of people who are just a little bit crazy." Check! Plus, most of us are harmless...

I had to look up pootle as well. They used it in a sentence: I shall pootle everywhere from now on!

" 'cause most of the spiders we see are girl-spiders." However do you know?

Sorry, Katy. I thought everyone used "pootle". It means sort of pottering around only more so. Difficult to explain but when you're doing it you know. IYSWIM

A bit like "shop window fuddling" (that could be an expression specific to my family!). Both mean sort of strolling around in a leisurely fashion looking at the goods on display.

Hmm. In my whole lifetime, I've never used the term "pootle".

I do remember when Pierre Elliot Trudeau was Prime Minister of Canada, and was caught using a very bad word. He contended that all he said was, "Fuddle Duddle". There were many tee shirts printed up with his statement.

My Dad actually met him when Dad was fishing in his boat, Trudeau was out swimming in the middle of Lake of the Woods with his secret service guys. He asked Dad how the fishing was.
