    We get there Tuesday. I told my wife they are apparently attracted to light so at least our souls will be safe.

    I get there on Tuesday as well. Maybe I'll bring a weed burning torch with me.

    As long as they are not congregating around the slot machine I'm playing, I couldn't care less.

    Just make sure the water in the Venetian canals doesn't turn red.

    Tell her to calm down. That always works.

    I asked a former neighbor who now lives in Henderson if they are really that bad. He said he and his wife went out yesterday and their driveway was covered with them. They all took off in a big swarm when he walked out onto it. He said they are about the size of crickets and are light colored.

    Yay for ‘I could not care less.’ The English language is a bitch, but I could care less about those trying to use it properly.

    My son showed me some videos of the strip sidewalks empty except for for swarms of grasshoppers. He told me the videos were bad, but I was still shocked.

    I get it. Along Lake St. Clair North of my birthplace Detroit, and in other areas of the Great Lakes, people cringe over the annual invasion of fish flies or May Flies. Around central Florida/Orlaneo it's swarms of "lovebugs". Just our own crosses to bear, I guess.

    I found a grasshopper in my kitchen last night. Is this an omen?

    My wife found a small snake in our entrance hall this week. I am sure they heard the screams on Mars. The snake was harmless but paid for his/her intrusion with it's life.
