Raining Spiders in Brazil

I must admit to a little arachnophobia when it comes to spiders crawling around at night. Having suffered a few spider bites over the years beneath the sheets, I take pause when I see some large spider moving about in that region where the wall meets the ceiling…adios spider!

So imagine the freaky spiders falling from the sky in Brazil. Like birds falling from the sky in Arkansas, I think it was, this is one of those events that reminds one how weird nature can appear. How did the spiders get into the sky

Hell no that’s not our ceiling! There would be no sleep otherwise. SixGunGoGo

It is good to find some blogs/sites re Fly Fishing in South America that do not cater principally to high end resorts, that most of us will never see. Perhaps these sites can explore and share about the ‘common’ man’s ff experiences in Argentina, Chile and beyond. I find it much akin to traveling to B.C. I can expend the energy and time to drive 12 hours due North and with adequate prior research have a wonderful experience without visiting Stoney or Minnie or some other private, high end location. I would like to see what the ordinary angler can generate sans guides, lodges, wine, choppers, video cameras and machismo. This is start for me…comenzar para mi.

Dog takes abandoned baby to her puppies to keep warm

 JUST A FEEL GOOD STORY, NATURE’S INSTINCTS (HUMAN & CANINE).

(CNN) — A dog sheltered a newborn baby abandoned by its 14-year-old mother in a field in rural Argentina until the boy was rescued, a doctor said Friday.

The abandoned infant was found in a field with this dog and her newborn puppies. A resident of a rural area outside La Plata called police late Wednesday night to say that he had heard the baby crying in a field behind his house.

The man went outside and found the infant lying beside the dog and its six newborn puppies, said Daniel Salcedo, chief of police of the Province of Buenos Aires. The temperature was a chilly 37 degrees, Salcedo said.

The dog had apparently carried the baby 50 meters from where his mother had abandoned him to where the puppies were huddled, police said. “She took it like a puppy and rescued it,” Salcedo said. “The doctors told us if she hadn’t done this, he would have died.

“The dog is a hero to us.”
