Monday, August 24 we had our group party for August at Pioneer Past Times again. It was a beautiful night, except for the cicadas in the trees! Do you know about those? Look them up on Google. They are a large insect ..about 1 1/2 inches long and the males "sing" to attract the females and it is SO LOUD you can't believe it. There must have been hundreds of them in the trees. Anyway...here is a picture of one from the Internet. I should have gotten a picture at the party. Some of them fell onto the women and they were REALLY freaked out! Made for an interesting night! Here is a website if you are interested in learning more about them.
I wanted this picture at the end of this post....but don't know how to move it down :) Anyway, I took this right at the end of the evening. The moon was a crescent and was so pretty! It gets dark here down by about 8:00
