Oh, No - Cicadas Again!

Okay, just when I thought I was finished with Cicadas for the 2008 season, along comes another crop! Thank goodness these little buggers aren't as bad as the 17-year variety we had early in the year. These are the normal cicadas we normally get during the dry months of August. They aren't nearly as prolific or as noisy as their little cousins. They also don't have those beady red eyes - yuck!

Oh heavens! I hate those things. So glad they aren't as loud. I remember the last time we had those and I thought they were a good way to drive someone insane.

Oh, I've had to suffer those 17-year cicadas twice during important occasions! The first was when my daughter was a wee one, and she was baptized in the middle of a cicada onslaught. The second, 17 years later, coincidentally, she was going to her prom--in the middle of a cicada onslaught! Ergggggggggghhh! BTW, Uncle Lynn has authorized another Great Pop'rs Giveaway--it starts tomorrow, so stay tuned!
