    Default Fred the Spider

    As from tomorrow here in Victoria it becomes compulsory to wear face masks outside the home.

    So “Fred the Spider” is being put to good use.

    Thanks everyone, went on a 5km walk, received a few double looks.
    Not fun though, walking with a mask on.

    Lol, Fred looks fab!
    Thinking of you all down in Melbourne and hoping things turn around soon - though lockdown over the border here in NSW looks ever more likely.

    Thank you Sydk, Hope NSW does not experience a lock down like here.

    Thanks GemGeek, he is getting plenty of fresh air at the moment.

    Thanks Bridie, he can be quite confronting on the mask.
    My son named him as a child many moons ago.

    Katbran, Fred is made of 18ct gold, his eyes are Sapphires, and his back is an Aussie south sea Keshi pearl.
