Isn't this moth interesting? I thought it was a dried up leaf or a curled piece of bark, but it was too symmetrical. Do you know what sort it is? I've never seen one like it.
Had a grand time in DFW this weekend visiting my family, but it was good to come home to Elsewhere.
Went for walkies Sunday night and two shirtless little neighborhood urchins were showing off the rattlesnake they'd killed earlier. I said one had bitten my dog and they asked what happened to it. They asked if I'd kept the rattle of the dead snake, I said yes and one said "Lucky!" Apparently he collects rattles. I didn't offer him my trophy.
Oh. and out for a walk near my house in a pasture, I found tracks of a gi-normous wild hog. This is not good. Bibbity-bobbity-bacon. No pig better come near my puppehs. I may not be able to make a silk purse of its ear, but I'll bet you a dollar I could make a coin purse of its cod. Just saying. I understand a 500 lb hog is hard to kill- do I need mount a little cannon on the back of my humble abode?
