Am I above reminding friends who moved away from Spokane that their new homes are far more buggy than the Inland Northwest?
I am not.
Just today, I ended a note to a guy now in Minnesota with "Watch out for mosquitoes."
His reply: "Skeeters aren't out in force yet, but they seem to be taking up homesteads around my hammock area. Bastards."
Oh, well. Birds like them as light snacks.
