Just when you’ve had it up to here…. The Spider Shows Up

Silly rubber spider to you….  29 years of practical joking to us!!

The rules: 1. Hide it somewhere that your spouse will eventually find it.  2. Forget about it.

Today was the first cold day here in Montana.  It’s in the low 40’s and I knew that my outfit for the day would include my brown tights (because I wanted to wear my favorite dress for fall and favorite brown boots!)  I haven’t seen my tights since I put them away last April when the weather started to warm up.  I was in a hurry to get dressed and out the door because I had a meeting to attend.  I reached into my drawer and found my brown tights, and pulled them out and EEK!   I startle, I chuckle, I call out to tell my husband that he did a good job….  yep, it’s the Creepy Rubber Spider who’s been hidden away for five months.

We were trying to get to Annapolis, MD for his Naval Academy Reunion.  It’s been planned for a LONG time and I have no idea why we didn’t purchase tickets since the last time we went to USNA a hurricane hit Maryland and flights were cancelled and we were all over the US trying to non-rev into Annapolis!!

No extra seats in the cabin on the first flight but there was an extra seat in the cockpit just for other pilots trying to get a ride!  I looked at Aldo and told him to take it and get to his reunion.  I would follow along as soon as a seat opened up on a flight!!  Continue reading
