Taunting defectors

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.
