Far better off in SA, no funnel webs, only Brown snakes, and red backs, and don't see many of either.

The wife loves me. She bought me a new jacket last week, said she got it for a great price. It's very nice, except that one sleeve is a bit shorter than the other two. ;)

Okay, while I'm here.

I wasn't very good in school. The teacher says to me one day, "Giner, tell the class one thing you're not very good at, beginning with the letter 'N'. "Spelling". I said.

I'm afraid arachnophobes get no sympathy from me here. Anyone who's scared of spiders should stay off the web.

HaHa. Looked at Dolly's picture, then saw your tagline "Steam in the suburbs" and thought not just in the suburbs, mate. :lol:
Nice one Manna.

You don't have to like them, just notice them. I remember someone kindly posting directions to the Imperial War Museum after I posted on facebook that I had wanted to go to their exhibition on camouflage but couldn't find it.

Oh, I liked your 'web' pun. It was one of those wincingly funny lines. I guess it's one of those responses that's hard to communicate in cold prose.
