Insult to Injury

I was trying to look on the bright side,
noticing that the poison ivy dots on my elbow have formed themselves
into a perfect smiley face,

but then I got a mosquito bite right in the middle of the rash
and it seems that my natural optimism has finally run its course.

but the big red dot now looks like a clown nose...smiles...ok so that probably did not help.

You can turn almost anything into a humorous moment. I really like the way you think. By the way, I love the CD you and the band have and hubby and I listen to your music almost every day. I have to thank you for your addition to our music favorites.

and why did God create the mosquito?

Heidi Lee said...

First off, that is a gross picture.

Second off, your friend Cammie asked such a great question. Mosquitos are quite pointless. I hate them. Despise them. Sorry about your rashbite.

Grr, me too. Lovin' on mosquito predators, I think . . .

Purple Martins
Dragonflies (Even more beautiful!)
Mosquitofish (100 larvae per day)
Bats (600-1000 per hour)

Mosquitofish are kind of cute, and you might be able to get them free from the DNR. Building a Purple Martin bird house could be an enjoyable project. Do Mark and Mary still make bat houses? Just an idea. I'm thinking it might attract a lot of bats, though . . .
