Wondering about wild grapes

Saturday, August 18, 2012

Wandered in to get my prescription filled.

Yesterday we wandered in to Wal-Mart to pick up my blood pressure prescription and I noticed a funny looking thing on the windshield wiper blade.  See:

Here is a close up:

What was really strange about it was that hundreds of little spiders came out of it.  When I say little, I mean little!!  You could hardly see them.  Now, I have seen where spiders had formed a web ball and the baby spiders would come out of that, but never had I seen anything that looked lite this.  I should have stopped and collected it, but I didn't have a jar that I could put it in and my wife didn't want thousands of little spiders loose in the Jeep.  Have you ever seen such a strange looking thing?

OK, according to my wife, we just had to stop at Hobby Lobby since we would be going right past it.  Of course I did, have to listen to the navigator, right?  One of the sections she likes to check out is the yarn.  I was just looking around and you will not believe what I spotted:

And of course a close up to better see what is sitting there:

Now tell me, how did a rattle snake get in the yarn section?  Maybe some woman's husband got upset at her buying so much yarn and thought maybe this would slow her up.  Did it work?  Heck if I know.

Since we are on the subject of wild life (we are?) I decided to take a picture of the rabbit that teases the dogs all the time.  Here is a picture of it inside the dogs' yard:

Of course, this rabbit is a much more welcome intruder than what used to get into the dogs' yard:
This old wild pig just knocked the fence down or stuck her nose under it and pulled out the posts and all, stomped it down, and just walked over it to get in.

Well, it is off to the flea market day, so I better go get some nourishment so I can help my wife carry everything she lugs home (grin).  You all have a wonderful weekend, you hear?


  1. Ok what happened to the rattler in the store?

  2. One thing ya gotta understand bout wimmins Dizzy, it that when they make up their mind on something like buy'n, ain't no rattlesnake gonna slow 'em down.

    How much you pay for your BP meds? Mine is only $4 at Walmart.

  3. Kristine, I don't know. I just left it there after showing it to my wife.

    BB, yep, she didn't even notice it until I pointed it out. Meds cost me $14.72 at Wal-Mart.

  4. Wondering,,,if your wife got any yarn?
    And,,how did you see any spiders? While inside while driving. and no, never saw anything like that.

  5. I hate snakes. That one would've kicked me back a bit.

  6. Trouble, yep she did. When I backed up to turn around in my drivrway, I first noticed the teeny spiders at that time. Am thinking that the eggs were laid in some kind of weird worm or something. Heck, I don't know.

    Jill, I am thinking some kids did that as a prank.
