The bugs are back in town again (The bugs are back! The bugs are back!)

Guess who just got back today?
Them red-eyed bugs that had been away
Haven't changed, still buzz all day
But man, I still think them bugs are crazy

Yes – our old friends, the cicadas, are back again after a 13 year absence. I’ve seen them in other parts of town in the last couple of weeks but they really just came out here in my yard. I took all of these pictures today.


The good thing is that they don’t bite or sting. They just annoy. They fly directly at you for no good reason. They crunch in the yard when you walk across it. The dogs want to eat them.

Remember these dumb cat posters?


I do. Now, we’ve got a new one to share:


What a face these things have.


They’ll be gone again soon and then we’ll have to wait another 13 years before they come back by the millions.


It’s finally the weekend and I’m trying to decide whether or not to cook. The lazy side of me is saying that it would be a great night to get out and my wallet is telling me that it needs to remain closed.

Hmmm, decisions, decisions……
