In the Shelter of Each Other (Good Samaritan Theme)

Wanda found a spider in the shower one morning. No surprise; it was an old house, full of cracks, leaks, drafts, and squeaks -- much like Wanda herself.

“Let’s get you out of the steam, little friend,” said Wanda. She trapped it in a Mason jar and freed it in the attic, where there were abundant insects to eat.

That winter, the house somehow felt a little warmer. The gas bill dropped and her arthritis eased.

In spring, Wanda checked the attic. Her friend had been busy. Carefully overlapped leaves wrapped in spider silk patched each hole in the roof.

What a nice ending. Maybe I should stop stepping on those little suckers.

But those million-legged thingamajiggers are still getting smooshed. I don't care if they offer to build an addition onto my house.
