Am I the only one who has noticed that in recent years, space visitors in everything from movies, to TV series, to comic books, to real books have stopped saying, "Take us to your leader?" Do you think it might be because they've noticed who our leader is?
The New York Crank
Remember also the bugs all over your windshield when driving in summer, not any more..
Ticks have replaced butterflies. Saw one monarch yesterday in Killington, VT.
No bugs to clean off the windshield.
Where are the fogs of bugs beneath the street lamps at night?
No bats to fly their nighttime circuit beneath the streetlights in the nocturnal feeding frenzy.
On the other hand the potato bugs are once again out in full force attracted to the light at our front door.
Yet, in the backyard, the three yellow transparent apple trees demonstrated a fruitful bloom courtesy of some unseen pollinator, perhaps the wind.
And that bounty attracted a 12 member turkey family, the resident tree climbing groundhog, 9 white-tail deer of various ages, 3 newly born rabbits, two gray squirrels, a chipmunk, 4 mourning doves and the red Cardinal overseer.
However, the balance is way off in light of the rare bee and butterfly.
