Bug Season

For those of us NOT vacationing in Hawaii, bug season has begun.

The season of long sleeves, long pants or a whole lotta bug spray.

Cow thinks summer would be more enjoyable were it not for these flying, biting, crawling critters. But doubtless, they have important jobs to do, whether it's supplying themselves as food or eating others.

Cow would just like to remove her leafy limbs from the process.

I get serious West Nile paranoia this time of year. I spray down the back yard with Pre-Strike, spray down the pup with flea & tick killer, attack containers with standing water... hate the bugs. ALMOST willing to make an attempt to attrack frogs to eat them, but I'm not quite willing to invite my mortal enemy that close yet.

This is when it pays to be a gorilla. Thick hair to protect the skin and a taste for any bugs that get caught in it. But I never knew that Hawaii was bug-free.

Ah. Hawaii is NOT in fact bug-free. People are just so happy splashing they never notice they've been bitten.

Hawaii we had big freakin' flying cockroaches that will not die even when you jump up and down on top of them.

Bugs and flies etc are one of the few bad things about hot weather. Along with the milk always turning out to be off when you pour it on your cereal.And discovering what your feet look like after wearing shoes all winter. Love scones

Can you not just swat those bugs with your full, leafy tail?
