Early September Spiders

Helen called me into the bathroom late last night to have a look at our latest visitor. I used to have no problem picking up big hairy spiders but the last few years I dread having to handle their spindly bodies to evict them into the cool night air outside. Like feathers stroking the inside of a wrist their hairy scrabbling legs trigger nerves in my neck, evicting the spider becomes a complete body experience, one I don't really need before bed.
