Around our house, this is what you hear at the end of the day when it is quitting time.
Scrappies are just little embroidered notes. I use up scraps. You can mail them to your friends or put them on your bulletin boards.
There was one pine tree at my grandparents' place that was very popular with the cicadas. The tree trunk was covered with exoskeletons. It seemed like there could not be any cicadas anywhere else because there were so many right there on that tree. There was no other tree like it. I believed that it had be a special tree to attract so many cicadas.
Every time I visited I would go check out that tree and there was never a time that the tree was not covered in cicada shells. That, at least, was something you could rely on to remain constant.
People have been asking if we are still doing that thing with the garbage. July 1 marks one year and the official end of the experiment.
Day one on the way to Scenic, SD
I had the camera most of the time. I tend to not take many pictures because it makes you stop and fiddle with the camera instead of just enjoying where you are. But, I did take a few and there is photographic evidence that Dagwood was there (aside from all the glamour shots he took of me).
We had a great last day of riding from the Prairie Wind Casino to the Tatanka Lodge. Rolling hills with cattle and horses-- we were ever on the look out for buffalo but did not see any. Stopped at Big Bats in Pine Ridge for a Gatorade. The traffic in Pine Ridge was serious! Stopped at Sioux Nation grocery store too. Got to the Tatanka Lodge and the manager, Jenn Robertson, made us a delicious salmon dinner (or supper depending on where you grew up).
Someone, who shall remain namless but does paper mache, has been bugging me about this piece. Oh, Bambi and Thumper! Is that Bambi? Why are you doing a Bambi embroidery?
I believe it has been well documented that I like cute animals. I am not a Disney fan, however. This is just a cute deer with a cute rabbit, OK? Got it? Good.
