The good, the bad and the ugly from our little goat dairy. Oh, and the cute, too. Lots of the cute.

This is just mental
For at least a year now, we have had a hairy, black and white jumping spider living in our mailbox. I don't have a photo of him, so I just pulled one off the interwebs ... gross, huh? And did I mention he's a jumping spider?
Most days I just say a little silent prayer that he'll be in the back of the box when I go to get the mail. 'Cause if he's on the Netflix, there ain't no movie watching that night.
It has occurred to me that I could kill Mailbox Spider, but it seems unnecessary, so I haven't. I mean, he hasn't hurt me. He's no worse than the bathroom spider.
Anyway, last week Christian and I were heading into town and decided to grab the mail on the way. C rolled down the car window, grabbed the mail, pulled it inside the car and drove on down the road. About 100 yards later we saw that M.S. had hitched a ride. Now - I saw this as the perfect opportunity to finally rid myself of the guy, but my mental husband actually put the car in reverse, rolled back 100 yards and chased the dang spider around his own torso and neck (where he had jumped from the mail)for a good minute or so before I helped scoop him up with a circular. I handed the spider and the ad over to C who gently placed him back in the mailbox and shut the door.
