We have a rule at our house...well, my wife's rule: If it's in the house, it dies. But outside I can convince her that spiders are cool and keep the bug population down!  I gotta tell ya, this one really freaked her out. It's one of those jumping, fast moving little buggers! He looks pretty menacing in the close-ups, but he would fit on a nickle.
