don't scratch

Each day for the last couple of weeks scads of these little fellas have filled the air about our home, and each day I scatter them from their perches as I hang laundry out to dry. I can't help but stare in amazement at those wings of theirs. So little can do so much, as the saying goes. That is a saying, no? Hmmm... anyhoo, did you know their main source of food are flying insects: mosquitos, flies, gnats, bees, etc? Awesome. Now if only they'd take care of the chigger population as well. Daughter 2 is on tube #2 of hydrocortisone cream and a new box of benedryl tabs. Poor thing looks like she has the chicken pox. Speaking of  ... seems it's time to reapply. I must say good night.
