Note the cat on the bed...and the
sparkly things dangling from the windows.
OK, the spider. My last night there, Kathryn is nosing around the bedroom, doing whatever, and I hear this "Trach, you gotta come here and see this." Well, my immediate response was "it's gotta be some big bug, no way." It was. I peered around the doorframe (not coming into the room if at all possible), and could see the creature in the photo below on the wall BEHIND WHERE MY HEAD WOULD BE WHEN I SLEEP:
|Note the hand in relation to the spider, they're about|
THE SAME SIZE
I then figured that I would really dearly love to sleep in the living room with the dogs instead of ON THAT BED. Why should I keep taking Kathryn's bed away from her? Generous me would gladly give it up. As luck would have it, about 45 minutes later, K finds it again, we box it up, take a picture, and SHE LET IT GO IN HER YARD. Spooky. I slept in the bed pretty soundly that night, though.
Well, I don't want the last picture in this entry to be of a huge spider, so here are some last photos from Oahu that will remind you that all is not creepy crawly:
|I don't remember exactly where this was, but it's Oahu and lovely|
|Better view of the ocean from K's yard. There it is.|
|View from a trail above K's house;|
her house is down on the left hidden by her yard's trees.
|The mountains on Oahu. You see this just about everywhere.|

Old cemetary. K is walking with Lealani, a neighbor and good friend.
