Good grief...I think it was the first night I was at Bill's and we walked through those woods, under the fallen tree, all the way to Don's house....at 2am! I still believed him that there were no spiders in Washington.
I found out different the next day when one got down my shirt while we were out in the yard. It was mayhem! I was screaming and trying to get my shirt off, shock Bill was trying to help...then Shadow went into attack mode because he didn't know what the hell was going on. It's funny NOW! blush lol
