What Will We Think Of Next

Updated on May 7, 2017

Let Us Find Out

Save a spider

Kill a bug

What a great idea for a poster

It could change the way we see nature

Spiders build webs automatically

All we have to do is set up a spider house

Outside in the yard of course

My wife wants it far away from her

I see not the obvious

But in between the lines

My wife said we have a spider in the house

It wasn't five seconds until I found an empty container for our new pet

The world is not ready for my original idea pet spiders

So years later I revamped my old idea

It's like taking an old black and white movie

Giving it color


Still my wife is less than thrilled

As I stand on my kitchen chair

Reaching with a pencil

The plan is to tap the spider into the old humus container

A clear plastic small container

On it's way to recycling

Pulled from a bag with plastic water bottles and broken cardboard boxes

Rescued from a sudden death

Now I still don't know if it will work

I have tried to get bugs before

Either I kill them by accident or they slip away

As I reach into the corner of the ceiling

Where the spider resides

I try to relocate him to a new home

I climb down of the chair

Turn to my wife

Do you see a spider on me ?

Your joking

She was way to calm

She was on to my shenanigans

I had it in the container safely

I show my wife

Her reaction


I wouldn't say that

More natural

Natures finest

Outside you go tomorrow

I put the container on the counter

If I was you

I wouldn't open it

Well that's all I have for today

Just a spider and a dream

      Gypsy Rose Lee I agree bugs belong outside. They can let bugs do what they do in the dirt or in the woods. If a few get lost I don't mind leading them in the right direction. If you cross my path I warned you. I do spray around our foundation of our home and it is suppose to keep bugs from crossing. It kills them dead. Thank you for reading and sharing. May the rest of the day get better and better.

      Hate creepy crawlies. Just recently I had a big black spider heading up my kitchen wall. I got it into a jar and dumped it outside in the garden.

      Annart I see mine in corners of our ceiling. So very kind of you to help out a spider in need. I think we could all look at spiders in a different way. As long as they are not the real bad ones. Thank you for sharing your story. Have a lovely day.

      I like spiders as they're so useful. However, that's from a Brit and we don't have any nasty ones here. There are still plenty of people who are afraid of them though, including several in my family. I'm the one who has to fish them out the bath and give them back their freedom!

      Michael-Milec Many ideas just become thoughts unless carried out. I think with so many insects in the world it is like an underground secret society. One most people want nothing to know about or care about. I am sure many bugs carry germs and we don't want them in our house but God created them for a reason. I know earth worms are so important in keeping the soil air rated for plants to grow. Birds eat earth worms. I know bats eat insects but I am not sure what else does. I am sure one insect might just be food for another. I wonder if certain bugs become extinct ? If some do does that cause other bugs to die off. The spider I had put in the container died because there was a little water left in the container. I guess the spider drown. There was only a rain drop off water. In my mind the spider should of been fine. Thank you for reading and sharing. Have a great day.

      ...they are cute, innovative, hardworking and shrewd - spiders - and you made an interesting presentation of their part in human interaction. In time of past more than I can see now while growing on an farm full of animals , ample of bugs, a feast for spiders. in all given corner of porches a spider webs were in display. In the evening the spiders were making new or repairing old once in perfectly engineered design then waiting for a catch. Occasionally a large bug hit the web, however before could loose off itself free, the master spider was there to secure it tightly for perfect meal. Those were some the most interesting "evening programs" since we didn’t owe any radio or TV. . . Up to these days, spiders all shapes and purposes do attract me and they are always appreciated ...

      Very interesting read, Michal

      Manatita 44 In some parts of the world spiders are dangerous and I totally understand. Luckily in Maine they are just annoying to most people. I spray my foundation to keep all insects out. Some how they find their way in. I feel they survived so far and if I let them free they can serve their purpose in the balance of life. I don't like to kill things even insects unless they try to hurt me or other people I love. Thank you for sharing on this odd subject to so many. My wife gives me time to express my interest in spiders as long as she is not part of it. I am always trying to create something that has not been created yet. It takes lots of creativity and imagination. The results can be amazing if I succeed or depressing if I don't make it happen. I have learned to cope with the second half more than success. Which makes something I finish more terrific. Have a great day.

      Some are terribly afraid of them bro. You have a creative mind, eh? Lol. On the other hand, perhaps you are trying to acquire the compassion of the Buddha. An awesome thing to do! Hope your wife settles.
