A few weeks ago I told you that Michelle sent us presents, before she left to go live in Japan. If you missed that post go check it out here. I told you that Michelle sent Jon a tarantula as a graduation gift. As I was looking through pictures I found the picture from the night Jon caught his tarantula.
These first two pictures are from December 22, 2005. Jon and I were spending Christmas in Haiti with Michelle's family. Michelle told Jon that he could catch a tarantula and bring it home as a souvenir. After hearing that Jon was thrilled and could not wait to catch his own tarantula. The tarantulas would come out at night and the dog would bark when he found one. So Michelle, her Mom Cindy, and Jon would head outside to see if they could catch one.
As you see they did catch a tarantula, actually they caught more than one! I just had to share these pictures of Jon with his prized catch of the day.
Fast Forward, five years later...Michelle took the time to preserve Jon's tarantula forever. It makes for a great conversation piece when people come over and see it sitting in our house. I just laugh when I hear, "So...why do you have a tarantula?" Thank you Michelle that we will never again, now we will never have boring dinner conversation again!
