The Highlight of Sunday Evening Used To Be Tinkerbell Flying Around That Cartoon Castle

But television has changed.
What does it for me now is the spiders that live on the living room window. Darling Jumping Spiders (Phidippus audax, according to our resident entomologist) live, hunt, eat and presumably reproduce, all on a flat piece of glass between the sofa and the cookbook shelf. They're happy there -able to hide in the corners but see their prey from any possible angle. And the entertainment value - at least, relative to other forms of entertainment available out here in the sticks - is immeasurable. The entirety of the soap opera of spider life is played out on the screen before. We've got them named and can distinguish individual personality traits. We even fight over who gets to control the remote.
Everyone's invited over pretty soon to enjoy the show. Pot luck. We might need a few extra chairs.
