- WHAT IN THE WORLD? OVER THE FENCE
Well, the thermometer reads 96F, but with the wind it doesn't feel like that.
Last night it was so windy that the hummingbird feeder blew off the apple tree and smashed on the ground. :(
LOVE, FAITH AND UNDERSTANDING
Do you remember the gentle times of childhood where time had no meaning except that you had to be in the house by the time the streetlights were on?; Where summer meant no shoes, being in the sun all day and family trips to the beach? Do you remember running through the sprinklers with the neighborhood kids and not caring that your hair was a tangled mess?
Or what about the night the Comet flew by and you and your whole family laid on the top of the old Chevy and watched the sky for hours?; Or going to sleep in your PJ's at the drive-in. These are truly the memories a happy childhood is made from.
Dad would hold it up and we would run fast with the string holder. Then he would run up and show us how to let out the string, a little at a time, gently so the kite would finally catch the wind and nose its way upwards. Then, oh the joy! to watch its exciting dips and flips in the clouds! It was always sad to see it come down, and crash to the earth; But by then we were on to more kiddie things, like the absolute joy of riding down the big grass hills on a big piece of cardboard. You felt like you were really going fast, until your brother went flying by you. Inevitably, you'd crash at the bottom, and then the big trudge uphill to do it all over again!

1931 Swarms of grasshoppers hit the MidWest destroying millions of acres of crops. The swarm was described as follows: They explode from beneath your feet. There's sort of a rolling wave that forms out it front of you. They hit up against your body and cling against your clothes. It's almost like being immersed in a gigantic living being. Locusts and grasshoppers undergo a significant transformation when they become part of a swarm. Their wings and jaws grow, enabling them to travel greater distances and increasing their appetite.The July 1931 swarm was said to be so thick that it blocked out the sun and one could shovel the grasshoppers with a scoop. Cornstalks were eaten to the ground and fields left completely bare.
