I got an interesting shock this morning. There was a large black widow spider, real not fake, on my frond door. It was like a real life Halloween decoration. I thought about saving it for some goofer dust or what not but I have this pact with poisonous critters. I don't harm them and they don't harm me. So I scooped it up in a bowl and set it down on some bushes around the house. The poor thing was probably just trying to find a spot to lay her eggs.
Below is a video of a man here in Oklahoma handling a black widow spider.
