September 13 – Can I get some crickets please?

My wake up call


God only know what these guys were working on (well, probably the old lady in my building too since she’s so nosy) but they decided to get to work early, right on my street corner. Not only did they wake us up, but I had to walk blocks away to have a quiet phone call later in the day.

I miss the VA countryside and the Rhode Island crickets where I can have peace and quiet when getting my beauty sleep.


PS This is a great aerial view of the squash’s “expansion.”
