The other day I went to take the garbage out and I couldn’t believe what I saw on our deck. There were three maple bugs lazily making their way from one end to the other. Where in the world did these stragglers come from? Don’t they realize they shouldn’t be roaming around my backyard for another 6 months or so?
I know the weather has been beautiful lately, but it’s not like it’s 30 above!
I have no idea where these little critters hide in the cold weather, but apparently, just like us, they love coming out when the temperatures warm up. I don’t like seeing those things in the middle of the summer, let alone the end of December.
This morning on the way to work I ran across three people making their way down 4th Avenue, which isn’t all that unusual. What was unusual was the fact they were walking in the middle of the road and had no intention of moving to the side to get out of the way of my vehicle.
Without even slowing down, I made my way to the right side of the road and passed them by. They didn’t give me a second look.
Makes a guy wish that, just once, pedestrians didn’t have the right of way. Now, that would be fun!
