Genevieve Marie: catmandu: I listened to the call and was surprised that the police came even though she never revealed that she was in a wheelchair. She was really sweet and apologetic and just really wanted some advice. Good for the police.Yea, I'm glad. That's how it SHOULD work and it's nice that she lives in a town where they were happy to help her.
Wrencher: wantingout: Brown recluse don't even live in Oregon. It was probably a hobo spider. A rag from the UK would have no concept of this. Must be a slow news day.They're not native to the PNW, but they are occasionally found here. Lots of odd things hitch rides with cargo. I used to work for an aquarium fish wholesaler here in WA, and we had fire ant colonies all over our warehouse.My brother got bitten by a Hobo spider. He spent 3 days on intravenous antibiotics so his toe did'nt fall off. Nasty little buggers.
cnlson: so did i, back in 86.
