Charlotte or Shelob?

Well, yesterday I went out back to grill and saw a pretty spider web in the back yard. I didn't stop to look to closely because last year when I saw a pretty spider web, it ended up having a pretty big spider along with it. (my skin is crawling just thinking about it). I hurriedly lit the grill and ran inside...then each time I had to get out to work on dinner, it was as fast as I could. I did in fact see part of the spider... OK, its body was about the size of a golf ball in my estimation...so it was bigger than spiders I just step on. I couldn't see it all, but it was perched next to its web just like Shelob...Its front legs hanging down a bit, but the rest of it hiding back. Later I caught more of a glance...ew! So, finally McKnight in shining armor arrived and went out back with a big newspaper. He came in after whacking 4 or 5 times and said..."Daddy just killed Charlotte" OK, in my imagination, Charlotte was not that big. I would not have liked her AT ALL, Some Pig or No Pig, if she had been that big. I haven't been able to shake the Shelob picture from my mind...and its been more than 24 hours. Its a good thing I don't live in a jungle climate.
