So the Halloween Spider says to the receptionist at the Optometrist’s, “By the time I pay for all of these contact-lenses, I will be totally broke!”

Posted by Tom's Nature-up-close Photography and Mindfulness Blog
My Blog primarily consists of close-up nature photos (that I've taken locally) combined with original holistic-truth oriented prose and/or poetry involving mindfulness/awareness. I love nature and I love understanding the whole (not merely the parts and the details). I'm a retired teacher of the multiply handicapped. I have a number of interesting hobbies, such as fossil collecting, sport-kite flying, 3D and 2D close-up photography, holography, and pets. Most of all, I am into holistic self-awareness, spontaneous insight, unconventional observation/direct perception, mindfulness, meditation, world peace, non-fragmentation, population control, vegetarianism, and green energy.

Stay mindful, understanding, and caring!...

Lol…Good one, Tom!
Tank yew, Sanday! 😁
haha! precisely the reason i grew only two eyes: more economical!
Ha! 😁 Yes, but you can’t see who is about to pounce on you from the sides or from behind! 😲
Looks like he’s wearing sunglasses! Contacts would be less likely to dislodge while jumping … maybe he can get a discount based on quantity?
Yes, Jazz, and there are far more eyes there than one may think! 🕷🕷🕷
LOVE THAT SPIDER PICTURE!!!!
Yes, Sara, Jumpers are my favs! They are like little monkeys! 🐵😊
Oh! They are the cutest spiders I have ever seen! Those incredible eyes…. Honestly, they don’t even look real!
Thanks, Bearly! 😊
Ha ha – must cost him a fortune in new spectacles (hope he doesn’t get double vision)!
Yes, Linda, there are many more eyes there than one may suspect! 😎
