Good morning everyone.   It is now officially Friday!   Friday Night Fun Net is tonight 🙂  146.610 or 147.195

I am kicking back and I am watching the original Ghostbusters movie.

It is good to finally see warmer temps!

I cleaned out my tarantula cage earlier today. She now has 3 dozen crickets. So she is going to be well fed. I like to keep her well fed so she is not aggressive.  She is very skittish, but usually when shes well fed she does not move much.  She has made a new web in the terrarium. Up in the front left of the cage.  It took her awhile before she built another web. But when she did, she put it up fast.  I been tossing around the idea of selling her. There are a few people that are interested in buying her. But I don’t know if I can part with her, lol  I should post an updated photo of her soon, so you  can see how much she has grown!

Hope everyone has a safe and wonderful weekend!

 








Rickie Traeger: Happy Saturday, Cleaned Tarantula Cage, Caught Up On TV Shows




Good afternoon everyone! Hope everyone is enjoying their Saturday!

I caught up on AMH, Myans MC, and Supernatural last night.   I was working on the websites and watched them while working on the website. I couldn’t believe how far behind I was. Well not anymore, lol.

I am watching the Nascar race at Phoenix as I write this. Decent race so far.

As many of you know I have a pet tarantula.  I just finished cleaning her cage. I had woodchips in there before and just switched it over to a coconut soil.  I actually kinda like this new stuff. I was going to go back with the woodchips, but figured I would try this stuff out.  It is super soft, so I am pretty sure my tarantula is going to like it.  I took out the 2 water sponges in there. I kept her water dish in there. She never used the 2 water sponges, so it is pointless to have them in there is she wasn’t going to use them.  She has her web right on the opening doors now. So it kinda made it interesting to clean her cage today. I should take a photo and upload it here. Actually I need to take a recent photo of her, because she molted again a month or so ago and she is huge 🙂
