TUESDAY NEWSDAY … THE SUN SHOWED ITSELF THIS MORNING!

THEN THE GLOOMY DOOMY CLOUDS COVERED IT UP FOR THE REST OF THE DAY: For some reason, ever since the groundhog saw his shadow on February 2, we’ve been reliving a deja vu version of that dumb Bill Murray Movie. Enough already! I don’t want to be a Gloomy Gus! I want to be happy and gay and sing all day like the Sunshine Makers!  “Sunshine, sunshine, there’s nothing like the good old golden sunshine!”  And Mlle Renee says the same thing!DSC09574She’s lucky, she’s got her warm and fluffy blanket and pillows to keep her happy at nap time everyday. If people would just stop flashing the dumb camera at her all the time.

Any way it’s Tuesday and time for today’s INSECT ORIGAMI PROJECT!

And today’s insect is …cicada

THE CICADA

Now I know there is no way I’m going to capture the utter uglyness of that summer insect with a sheet of origami folding paper … but, I’ll give it my best.

And I didn’t! Actually the background photo is better than the folded paper. Well, you can’t win them all.

And as some auther once wrote, “You can’t go home again.”Unknown

Well, I set out last year to prove him wrong! And all I did was prove him right.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The home where I spent fourteen years growing up once stood on that lot.

  1. No, katydids are a species of cricket. A lot of people also confuse cicadas with locusts which they are not. Locusts are in the grasshopper family.

  2. Well, your cicada is not quite as outstanding as the snail, cricket, and ant, but it deserves to be part of your growing insect family!
