We were in the studio glazing when Ed came in and yelled "Spider". I was in the back. I thought that was what he said, but was not quite sure what he was getting at. Bruce left and then came back and said "Spider!" "Ed found a spider come look. Bring your camera" So I cleaned up and went out to find my dad standing in the middle of the garden. I took a picture. He was marking the spot where he found the largest garden spider I have ever seen. This spider must of been ready to lay eggs, it was huge. I went back to look for it a few hours later but she was gone. I believe we messed with her enough that she figured this was not the spot to hang. After I took many shots of her I turned around to go back to work when I spotted the grasshopper curiously watching.
