How can a decorative flower from a lunatic singer make noise, is my question.

I've been told that if you stand anywhere in the state of Michigan, you are no more than one mile from a body of water. For me, that amounts to one lake, two rivers, and a swampy region at the back edge of my property (runoff from one of those rivers, I think).

The end result is that the crickets, of which we have plenty, almost have to crawl into bed with you in order to be heard over the bullfrog symphony.

And if mosquitoes barked, no one in this state would get any sleep.

you say you like mosquitoes ron?  how about coming to stay up here?  winnipeg has such nice ones too.

you can stay at my house with the empty lot next door and the mosquito count in the thousands.  i still have several stuck to my walls from july that i just can't get down.  maybe one day they'll turn to dust...

Ron, reminds me of a place I used to live, and continually miss.

Sounds enchanting.

Empty lot, Jen? If the mosquitoes over there number in the thousands, it's not really very empty then, is it?

We have similarly empty lots in these parts, too. Except we call them corn fields, deer runs, or woods.

i'm on the edge of the city, so the streets are surrounded by farmer's fields.  soooooo many fields.

and then there's all of the bush.  soooo much bush.

too many  mosquitoes, that's all i have to say.  too many.  ::le sigh::

I had a cat named Cricket once, she was adorable. Just thought you all might want to know that.
