    how do you prepare them?

    I'll Soak them in water (some prefer salt water) in the sink to drive out the lil critters .
    Cut them length wise, spray the insides and remove from the sink. Put on paper towels to drain.

    Saute them in butter for 5-8 minutes. Enjoy!66d3a05uroxq.jpg
    One of a few found today.


    You can also dredge them lightly in flour with a little salt and pepper before you sauté them in the butter.

    We had a little visitor in the garage this afternoon.
    I was cuttin' up a box in which we'd brought some plants home from our county extension office on Friday, and this little dickens popped out.
    Being a biologist, of course, I ran -- to get a camera & tape measure.

    Mrs. H, for reasons I cannot fathom, does not like spiders. I keep tellin' her that they eat bugs and that spiders are our friends, but she's not buying it.

    He, or she (or they -- not sure about spiders) was very cooperative while I set up the measuring tape & snapped a bunch of photos. I like the way the flash glinted off its eyes -- although in the picture I posted above, only one of them is really glinting :)

    Shots fired, shots fired, Officer needs backup!

    I'm N. Mississippi you could go out in the yard (we had a 3 acre lot)at night and shine a light into the grass and they would shine everywhere. 1,000s of them. Creeped me the *&#%$ out! I wanted to spray fuel on the whole property and burn it.

    Dont know why but heights and spider are my kryptonite!

    Yes, but the gut spread after a proper stomping is the true measure.

    My son sent me this inspiring image earlier today (he hasn't offered an opinion on our arachnid fellow traveler so far*)

    iwswzb2a4v3i.png

    A photo of that reminds me of a Hunter S. Thompson quote:
    When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.
    ____________
    * He had a run-in with a similar spider a year or so ago down in VA. It was clearly stalking him at the time -- he did finally get it corralled and put it outside.

    Where'd you get that photo? That's the super top secret Elon Musk Mars/Lunar manned rover. Note the Tesla recessed door handles (design flaw). Be careful doc.

    Remarkable. The internet has now fulfilled its ultimate purpose. It may be decommissioned now; there is no need for any further service on its part.
