Love is in the air! Or on the ground anyways.
Och, the mosquitoes have been making sweet sweet love as an effect of our soggy weather. They've been breeding like bunnies, and we've got plenty of bunnies too!
I'm covered in bites. Apparently I don't run fast enough to beat mosquitoes. How encouraging...
Meego and Wolfgang are similarly covered.
So rather than b*tch about the b*tch mosquitoes (the biters are all females, y'know), I decided to transfer my anguish to Illustration Friday for this week's prompt: "airborne". Although my mosquito is not shown in flight, I know she gets around.
Our backyard is still a swamp. The runoff from the hill behind our house seems unrelenting. Chaco noted that there is more than one species of algae (aka pond scum) growing back there, so I suggested we turn our yard into a biological research center. Maybe we can get a government grant and all publish papers and get Ph.D's while we wait it out. Magnum is on some sort of mission to drain it. He's at Home Depot as I speak/type. We'll see if this alters our doctoral plans.
China's dog run is similary swampy. She asks to go out, I take her out, she looks at her digs, looks at me and says, "You're not serious".
Oh well. It is still better than fire.
