And end to the tale of the spider in my letterbox

missing

I’ve been asked a couple of times for an update on the status of the redback in my letterbox… sadly, the story is now over.

A couple of weeks after we last visited our arachnid heroine, Dave went out to get the mail. When he opened the mailbox door he was surprised to see our spider doing battle with a large stick-like flying black insect. The black bug flew away and our little spider didn’t look very well. Dave performed mouth to mouth resuscitation but sadly it was not to be – our little spider friend went to that big mailbox in the sky.

I like to think that she’s terrorizing someone up there right now.

  1. That’s sad… I was getting to like the spider..

  2. Sweet closure! Perhaps now, the nightmares will end.
