Okra for Mrs. Stone, thank you for the spider
The picture above is a special thank you to my Mom for making me eat my okra. I just want her to know that I am passing along the appreciation of this excellent vegetable to other children. Mmmm - gumbo.
And another special thank you to all the folks who pitched in to help us identify Joan's spider friend, Argiope. (His real name probably isn't Argiope - probably Henry, or something. But we like the sound of Argiope - rhymes with Caliope. Look it up.)
I should report that when I went out this morning to pick, his web was there, but he wasn't. If he crawls out of my shoe in the middle of a meeting today, notice will be taken. I'm just saying.
