This ‘n That
Ever see one of these?
It is a Jerusalem Cricket. You don’t see them often thank goodness, because they can strike fear in the hearts of grown men. But they are harmless. This guy is about the size of a man’s thumb, he was curious about me and came out to have a look, but when I returned with a coin to show scale, he had lost interest. The first time we saw one (much larger) we screamed and ran, and tried to kill it of course. But now we just send them over the fence.
Besides, this guy will eat it for breakfast.
This is a sparrow hawk, and he or she circles the sky in front of our house all day, every day, squawking its hawk screech. I thought it was pretty cool for a while but now it has gotten annoying.
The next day was Father’s Day—we had the “kids” over and took granddaughter Savannah for a swim. It was a beautiful day. We can go over to the family pool but they can’t come to our side. No kids allowed on our side.
For dinner I made BBQ ribs, broccoli salad, and sweet potato fries. Deelicious! And leftover chocolate cupcakes for dessert. This was our first meal outside on our patio and the weather was absolutely perfect.
Today (Monday) I played golf.
