ON THE BACK BURNER

August 22

Mosquito hog vs Dragon fly. Where I came from, N.O. those things that fly, have wings and eat mosquitoes are called mosquito hogs . That's what they do. My husband who grew up in Great Neck, calls the same flying insect a dragon fly. Do you see them eating dragons. No. They eat mosquitoes. They don't look like any dragon I've seen in the National Geographic Magazine. I have to admit, that as a child, I would catch them. I did no harm. I needed to say that here. I also caught lightening bugs and saved them in a jar. I did harm them because they usually died of heat stroke in that closed mason jar. I really only wanted to see a bunch of them light up at night. The last time that I saw lightening bugs was in the Mid west. Don't they have them in Florida.? I wonder what my husband calls lightening bugs.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.
