Sad News


Godiva Spider, age unknown, passed away peacefully sometime between last night and this morning of unknown causes. She leaves behind 50-200 unborn children whose fate has not yet been determined. She was a good spider for the 6 days we had her. We have many fond memories, the least of which is when Matthew switched jars and made it look like she escaped. Please keep her family in your prayers. May she rest in peace. Services will be tonight, with burial being tomorrow morning around 4 am by Brown's Trash Removal.

Oh NO!!!!!!!!!!!! it was that bread! You probably put her in the car with a carseat with the handle up, or exposed her to sun without protection. "Oh no, it is just not right ...MOM!!!!!!!!!!" Do you still have the sac. break it open so they can live! Oh what drama.

How are you keeping kids alive??

Did anyone get the quote joke? If so, please let me know. It was one of my best really.

Just don't put them in okie-dokies. That's the least you can do.

Ok, If I'm wrong, please correct me. I *think* that the mother dies once she places her egg sack. You know, like in Charlotte's Web. She dies. Remember? I bet she died for that reason! The egg sack will open and the babies will come out.

Lura said...

I don't think so, cause they are supposed to live on the mother for several weeks.

Lura said...

"She then tears open the egg sac and the newly hatched spiders climb onto her back where they remain for up to a week".
