Laura E. Swan level-classic September 14, 2010

This fellow must be made of RUBBER. Tammy STOMPED him and he STILL LOOKS GREAT! :D !!!

Was he big or medium or small? There was a HUGE HUGE HUGE one in our back yard once and I screamed and ran. I begged my husband to GET IT OUT OF THE YARD so he gets a broom, gently picks it up out of its web and then CHASES ME WITH IT!

I wont even tell you how long after that that I didn't speak to him. Put it this way...he went without food that day.

HA! Love it Kitty. You are so brave!
