Don't count your lady bug larva until they have hatched.....or morphed...or whatever they were supposed to have done. The pic of the day: our dead lady bug larva. Here is a tip. If you get one of these little habitats for viewing the miracle of nature - don't place your order for your lady bug larva during the biggest heat wave of 3 years in Ga. They will arrive in the mail....fried. Not so amazing for the young lads to view. Yep. We did the same thing with our ant colony last year. The company is very nice. I am sure we are tagged as bug killers somewhere in their system. They are sending out the next batch at the end of October. Now - for the something old pic: My hubby. We met in Oct of my freshman year of college. He was a senior. Furman Universtiy is on a tri-mester system. So we had a short session for two months in Jan & Feb. Winter term. Doesn't look so winter where he is - does it? He is in the Galapagos Islands with a rare blue footed boobie (try not to laugh) on his shoulder. We had only been going out for a few months at this point. But I knew we would get married already. Just this little problem that I was only a freshman and had a lot of school ahead of me. Anyway - my biology major boy friend...now hubby of 11 years. That is my old pic of the day. Hope you are having a grand weekend! kellicrowe ps - the best stuff in this blog happens in the comments - you all are cracking me up!!
