    I can see the Telegraphs head line now 'Tranter tackels tonnes of titanic tarantulas amongst tummult and turmoil of tiddying up'. ;) :p :D

    I hope you forgive me Tranter. It's 7:00 AM here and I haven't slept yet. The joys of being an insomniac. :rolleyes: :eek: :)

    I like the fact you beat Pistol to the punch (Line).

    As for not being able to sleep? I know exactly what you mean, sitting downstairs with a hot drink at 3am is sadly somewhat familiar to me. But as I like to say, 'it is what it is'.

    Good for you, Trantor -

    Anything with more than two eyes is just - - - unnatural!

    I agree. but what doesn't make sense to me is im a firearms enthusiast but i freak out about spiders.... I swear if it weren't for self control there would be 12 gauge holes all over my house.

    I mean think about it 8 legs 8 eyes some are venomous they have sticky web that you walkin in to and it pulls the spider on to you or they drop from no where in the bathroom when your takin a poo or in the shower. i think spiders are out to get me so thank you Trantor!

    Trantor 1000 spiders 0 :)

    I don't mind snakes or rats or anything of that nature, but spiders and opossums really freak me out.

    Ah Pistol, your superb ability to articulate, to verbalise and formulate in words that we can never hope to match, let alone comprehend leaves me, quite speechless. :rolleyes:

  11. Oh, by the way, Tranter. I voted in your Cambridge News poll. I don't think the police should try to enforce the 20 MPH speed limit. :D;):p

    Pine, why would you be afraid of ol' Mr. 'Possum?

    WE have a 'Cambridge News', I must investigate....

    Actually, if there is and you did you will read of some police cases Mrs T is involved in. She often reads it and says 'Thats one of my clients'.

    oops, now you know I knew..

    'Possums are horrid creatures with sharp teeth, they have even moved into my town. Most of the 'possums here have frostbitten ears and tails, but being transplanted to the cold north doesn't stop them loping around scaring people (I tend to go for strolls at night, so I'm always on alert!) Bah.
