When you have been visiting a place for a number of years you become attached to it. I feel that way about Maumulon, John and Sue's summer home. Some of those memories are annual and everlasting. Some are occasional.
This House Spider (compared with a large teaspoon) was one of many I saw this year. I don't recall seeing any before (but you know what my memory is like!). Sue managed to get bitten by one when she was asleep and the blood actually hit the wall!
