Not a Spider

Harvestmen known as Daddy-long-legs are members
of the spider family but they are not true spiders.
True spiders have two body segments and venomous
fangs. Grand-daddy-longs-legs do not. We played with
them as children and would catch them and ask them
to point in the direction where the cows were.

  1. How funny. I played with these little creatures too.

  2. I played with them too when I was a young girl in Germany. I put them on my wrist and watched them as they walked up my arm and when they reached my shoulder, I'd put them back on my wrist - I don't think I would want to do that today ;-)
