Grasshopper season

It's starting. Millions of tiny grasshoppers, hiding in the grass, springing through the air, slamming into your neck and face as you go whizzing around on the four-wheeler, and spread out all across the road, waiting to crunch and flatten under the car tires.

We should start seeing toads, soon. I don't know where they come from - they just appear in the early summer, and disappear a month later. Pictures soon.

    If the grasshoppers're nice and disease-free maybe you can have a fry-up. Mmm...crunchy...

    Do you know if you boil them, they turn pink, just like shrimp?

    Just started up a new photo group on Flickr for walkies photos. There's free memberships to be had if you want to bung some stuff up.

    It's brass monkeys again here today. Sunny still but a cold cold wind. I'm as snug as a bug in a woolly jumper inside.

    Did you go for an evening walk on Tuesday? It was winter solistice here. A 9 hour & 54 minute day.
