possible abduction case. Giant 3 foot high spides in my friends back yard

This is not necisarly a UFO report but I know that something VERY strang happened in this experience and I have a feeling that Me, my brother and my 2 friends were abducted back when I was the age of 5 and 10. I don't know if your interested in this stroy but I am trying to tell as many people about this because I KNOW that there is something happened on that day. I don't expect a responce from you or anything but maybe this can help some people. I don't know exactly when this happened but sometime between that age of 5 and 10 (I am 30 now) Me, my brother and my 2 friends were sitting in the back yard of the friends house on their swingset. Behind thier house is a small field with a path that ran behind the houses all the way down the street and into the park at the end. After the field was a 4 foot wire fence seperaing the houses from the raliway property. After the fence is a small hill built as a noise protection from the traintracks. It was sometime in the summer I dont' know the day or the month but it was about mid afternoon. The 4 of us were on my friends swingset just talking and goofing around when along the path in back of the yard came a kid our age. To this day I can swear that I knew who this person was and we all knew him at the time of this story but I canot remember his name or who he was. He came up to us and asked us if we wanted to see some giant spiders. Being kids of course we all did so we followed this kid down the path almost all the way to the park. About 2 or 3 houses before the park he stopped in the path and pointed to the 4 foot wire fence. there on the fence was a GIANT spider. At least I remember it being a spider but the thing is it only had 4 legs that I can remember. And when I say GIANT spider I mean this thing was almost the size of the whole fence!!! So it had to be at LEAST 3' tall. Now you may think I'm crazy or I'm making this up but I remember that spider clear as day and I'll remember it till the day I die. It was colored yellow and black sort of tiger stipped. It had a big body. The legs of this thing were very long. All four of them. Probably about 18" to 24" long each and they were skinny. I do not remember any joints in the legs though. Now you can say someone was probably playing a joke but the year was approximatley 1974 so I doubt you could find anything this realistic looking to play a joke with and not only that I remember one of the spiders moving. Very slowly. That's about all I remember about the insident. I don't remember going home that day and I don't remember ever seeing that kid again, ever. But that's not all. I don't think any of us talked about this insident for a while to each other or to anyone else but when we did start telling people about this Me and my brothers friend always remembered the spiders being 3' tall but my brother and my friend always remembered the spiders being maybe 4 or 5 inches tall (a big spider but not GIANT spiders) I think this disagreement is what caused us to stop talking about this insident altogether. But I still remember certain times growing up when I'd see a big spider (there are yellow and black big spiders in my town and they are big), I'd always say, that's nothing ( size wise) and I'd remember the GIANT spiders. Now years later I started rembering this insident again and I asked my brother about it but he doesn't remember anything about this not even seeing smaller spiders. That's about all for now. I hope this fits into yoru criteria somehow and you can take the time to examine this insident. I thank you for your time and understanding. ((name deleted))
