I'm not going to tell you where we found him because I don't want to think about it again. I have already gone to that safe place in my mind.
I like spiders in the garden. They do great things for any bug situations.
But I do not do not do not do not like spiders in the house. Especially big ones.
(FYI - my son named this spider "Ladybug Paco". If you have help naming things, he is available for consultation)
