My New Insect Collection














No. This is not a reposted picture ( go back and look if you don't believe me).
The previous bug gut coating on my beautiful JEEP was courtesy of the dreaded love bug. These are not love bugs.

These are the unlucky members of the vast midge swarm that I drove through as I descended the east side of the Palatka bridge over the St. Johns river last Thursday night.

Crazy insects ... they think they own the place :)


Here's a bug joke:

What's the last thing that goes through the mind of a bug when he hits your car windshield?






His butt!

Or as my Uncle Chester used to say, they won't have the guts to do that again.

McBean Gene & YOU are very witty this morning. I wish I could think of a bug joke to add.

Sophie said...

So that's what those things were! We drove across that bridge one night several years ago and went through a similar 'storm'. Good to know some things don't change. 8-]

Great St. Auggie pics! I should take a lot more around here before St. Joe destroys the entire Panhandle. >8\

I cannot accurately describe my reaction to your joke, even with the help of emoticons. You'll just have to picture it for yourself.

Laura said...

Hope you weren't driving the jeep topless....or yawned at the same time. ;)


For your wife: GO GATORS!! 6-0!!!

oh, and btw, What's Wrong With Cats? :)

Wouldn't it be a shame if those were Florida Panthers impacting your windshield? But, no, we get to worry about midge buttholes.

Hoss,
Those panthers make a heck of a splatter.

Floridacracker said...

Mac,
Love that one.

Laura,
Topless, but they never made it past the windshield. The Gatornut was thrilled.

They exist.

Mrs.S,
Hope it was labor inducing laughter :)

Sophie,
Great idea. Photograph everything.

Sandy,
I usually steal mine from Hoss, but this one I've had for awhile.

Laura said...

I have a real good panther story for you and Hoss, FC. :) just let me know sometime!

Freudian Slip said...

It sounds like those bugs were trying to hitch a ride!

That's one bad joke, lol.
