ok...before murder gets committed, or anyone has a freak out that leads to a heart attack...

there is a new, very large, beige spider...currently weaving her web over above the kitchen sink. that is quite the intricate web...it has been a lot of work. her name is agatha...AND i have assured her that she and her beautiful web, are perfectly safe here.
my word is my bond so everyone leave agatha alone. she may be ugly, (in human terms) but she is in fact harmless. and we do not cause harm to innocent creatures simply because we think for some stupid and nonexistent reason, that ugly means scary...because the reality is...ugly is not.
honestly, phoebe is way scarier than a spider.
which reminds me...phoebe might be dying. maybe not, but the possiblity for a few more hours exists. that lump she has over her kidney from running into my car door a couple of years ago, suddenly, yesterday, blew up. it doubled in size over night. so we sent her into the vet...she thinks it is a lypoma but since it changed so quickly and is obviously bothering her. the vet is a bit worried. apparently there is a rare form of lypoma cancer so she sent off a sample for pathology. maybe it is an aggressive, non treatable kind?
so today i am not really ashamed to tell you, that i am cheerfully contemplating my mourning of phoebe's eventual death. yes i will be sad because i do love that little hag...but lets be honest here..with that great sadness will come a very quiet, very peaceful, non-irritating, giant black hole... (i imagine that won't be too hard to learn to live with.)
i will let you know the pathology results as soon as i know.
