I’m not ready.
I’d prefer later for that thing, I think.
Ummn, are you trying to scare us or something?
EEEwww! What brought this on, Ellie?
Yea, yea, we know. We already had 8 years of Cheney in the White House.
I’m waiting for them
They will start coming up out of the bowels of the Earth in a few. My cicada wasps are waiting.
My cicada wasps are waiting for that guy too
They do make great cat toys
My cats are waiting. They’ll catch them and bring them into the house.

Ohhhhhhh. It’s a cicada!
Yeah, I don’t think we get them in Texas. don’t remember them when I lived in Mass….well, I guess Texas is the only place I’ve been long enough to be there at the end of a 17-year cycle.
I think my parents mentioned them in Maryland the last go-round…wonder if they’ll pop out while I’m there this coming week? that would be interesting.
I, for one, welcome our new insect overlords.

Those things are delicious. Properly cooked, they have the texture of shrimp and a nice nutty flavor.
Take your favorite cashew chicken recipe, sub cicada for the cashew and enjoy!
Boxturtle (Not kidding, they’re tasty)
A plague of locusts reported in late March, 2013, Madagascar.
