    All Except for the Spiders...

    ...known as Daddy Longlegs. They're totally harmless and one of the insects I've gone out of my way since i was a child not to harm. Just as i did several weeks ago, whenever i see one in my house, i'll gently carry him or her outside to go on with their life.
