THE ANTS GO MARCHING ONE BY ONE ...

I was just looking at those big, fat, juicy ants marching across the deck and thinking to myself,
what a sweet little appetizer they would be ...

Then I noticed that guy in the lead with his teeny-weeny Santa hat ... and I noticed all of them dragging teeny-weeny tree lights, and I started to think to myself ... maybe they're off to some ant farm to decorate for the hollydays for the bitty-little ants ... and those bitty-little ants would be awfully disappointed if the family didn't come home today to spruce up the place and all ...

And then I remembered the grandma is always telling the little grand boy if he wants to step on a bug:
"you know this is their home, outdoors here ... we are just guests in their home ... 
so do not bother them, let them be and let them go on their way ...".  

So, I thought some more, and said ... no big, fat, juicy ant appetizer today ... 
it's the hollydays for everyone and everything ... all the creatures great and small, remember that famous line.

[besides something tells me those ants aren't real anyway]

  12. We always try not to kill bugs. Ghostwriter catches spiders and wasps and puts them outside. Same with stink bugs. I often catch flies and mosquitoes, but I eat those. Yesterday Dad found a stink bug in the medicine cabinet sitting on top of his stick of deodorant. (Kind of ironic if you ask me!) But then ghostwriter accidentally knocked it over into the sink and the stink bug got decapitated. Ooops!

  14. You are a very wise dog, Dougie, one to listen to Grandma, and two to realize those aren't real. Lightning loves to eat the big cicada bugs here in the summer.
