I wore my Best Friends T-shirt and I pinned a wooden brown spider on it, a model of the real thing. One fellow volunteer saw it and said "I love spiders!". This is what I live for, sometimes, to be with people who will say something like this, instead of "ew!".
There was talk of raccoons and possums (raccoons are social animals, possums are not, but possums are friendly if you get to know them) and birds and dealing with husbands. I didn't see any male volunteers.
