    Such a sad story.........but think of the good side.......some of the best sprinters probably come from there too


    Side note.......I can hear the bass from U2 thru my window......and they are playing miles away!!!!

    It's a shame to have a statue of a mosquito... I'd rather have this:



    Tribute to Chris LeDoux that was erected in his home town of Kaycee, WY last summer.

    The world’s largest statue of a mosquito is a roadside attraction in Komarno, Manitoba, the Mosquito Capital of Canada. (“Komarno” is Ukrainian for “mosquito.” What’s up with that?) Sculpted in 1984, it is made of steel and has a wingspan of 15 feet. It’s also a weathervane, swiveling in the wind.

    I thought it was the capital of the world, but they aren't quite there yet!!!! I guess they have some work to do.....

    Yep just swated the first mosquito of the summer, the first of millions I presume. I can't stand the constant scratching from the bites. I hate nothing more than the persistent buzzing around me as I sleep. Damn you Mosquitos, I hate you and everyone of your kind may you all get swated into oblivion.
    I have a used propane mosquito trap that I'll sell you for $100. :thumb:

    I am a good friend of our city's Entomologist. He does great work, but in the end, it comes down to the weather. If it's dry, he's a hero. If it's wet................he has few friends.

    Based on the weather that's happening in North America.........he and others in his profession will be friendless!!!!

    I hope the mosquitos are leaving U2 alone 2night, as they play here in our fair city........actually it's probably too cool........as are they!

    (dang....couldn't get good tickets)

    I was shooing away those pesky jerks already last week. I thought.. already? This many?

    And with as wet as it has been this past couple of weeks, I know we are in for an infestation this summer.

    Is it just me or do the mosquitos look freakishly bigger than before? I swear there was one chilling on my door that was as long as my finger.

    Needless to say I declared, "No one touches my eggos" before I proceeded to swat its ass to mosquito hell.
