Grasshopper Invasion

My tomatoes have had a profusion of green growth, unfortunately its being eaten away by grasshoppers.

Grass hoppers!!!

I had to fetch my garden gloves and wade into the raised garden bed and try to kill those suckers. I don't mind peeling off tomato horned worms, but grasshopper?

Ick! They look like creatures from another planet, and ready to hop away or take me on.

Things That Go Bump In The Night

Hundred year old farm house we rented for 25 years

We have moved out of the hundred year old haunted house into a modern nine years new home as of three months ago.

Our first home purchase. We're were and still are very happy.

No more wood floors, no more squeaking doors, or weird noises at night. 

Or so I thought. 

In a new home, I would be safe from things that squeak and creak, chitter and slither, and generally disturb my rest. 

Then one night it happened, something in my master bath let out a slow creak. 

And I spent the rest of the night with my eyes wide open in the dark.
