That's All I Got: #1


I've been thinking: How does one, overextended, maintain a blog? Solution du jour: Mini-Posts. ta-DUHhhhhh: A photo, a line, leave a brief message at the beep.

*beep*


I took this one Friday night, in St. Louis. We were a party of 7 at Jennifer and Bill's house this weekend, and on Friday night sat out under a romantic gazebo on the most gorgeous deck, just decorated, as a their wedding gift, by what must have been a master gardener. This deck is paradise, and family, friends, good beer, tree frogs, and locusts didn't hurt the atmosphere one bit.

Until that locust tried to fly into our hair.

  1. And the worst part is that in a direct confrontation with those guys (we call them cicadas here) they actually scream at you!

  2. When bloggers aren't posting as much, I take it as they're busy...living =)

  3. I haven't heard a cicada yet this year. It's such a damn crappy summer...

    Love that picture though, I'm glad to see summer exists outside of Quebec.

  4. Oh, cicada, yes. Is there a difference, maybe I got the buggy name wrong.

    I love the sound they make, unless it's literally right in my ear.

  5. What's all the fuss. You guys could've pretended it was a pretty barrett. Or however you spell that. I've seen bug barretts. Cool kids wear them. :-)

  7. I think people enjoy mini posts. At least, I hope so because that's what they're mostly getting from me, too.

  8. I know I've been silent lately as you've been trying to cope. It wasn't that I didn't care or didn't know, I just didn't know what to say. But trust that I think of you often and pray for you to find the strength you need.

    I guess I did know what to say after all.

    Overwhelmingly loud in numbers...
    I like to collect the skeleton shells they leave.
