This is NOT what I signed up for!

Hi there!

How was the walk?  Great, more details and pictures forthcoming.

Me?  I’m still shuddering from THIS experience with the reptile encounter. Consider me encountered.

I’ll be back to post after I’m finished scrubbing myself until my skin comes off in sheets.

    Oh my! You are braver than I would be. They wouldn’t come within and inch of me with that hairy thing. (Shudder… shudder) Ha!

    Although, I think I’d come closer to letting a tarantula touch me than a cockroach…ugh!

    Actually this is so big and hairy it looks more like an animal than a spider! Now if you came anywhere near me with a spider ……… What am I talking about – I’d just run a mile (even ten miles if necessary) before I’d let that thing on my arm !! Have you gone CRAZY?!

    Her name is Rosie. She is a rose-hair tarantula from Chile. I can’t believe Anissa was so worried! What a baby. Nathaniel is much braver then her.

    I am sure that if you own it, the venom was removed. Rosie is a cutie pie.
