June Bug! June Bug! It's Brown, It's Brown! -- Blogdogs, Peas in a Pod?
- In the northern United States, the name is applied to the numerous species that are known as May bugs in the southern United States, where they emerge earlier. The brown, stout-bodied adults are about 25 mm (about 1 in) long and feed on leaves. From Everything about June Bug, Microsoft® Encarta® Online Encyclopedia 2006 (link)
To be fair to Rachel (April 17 blog), the article further goes on:
- In the southern United States, the name green June beetle is applied to a similar green-and-brown beetle that, in the adult stages, feeds on ripe figs and other fruit.
So Rachel is correct too, as she is from the south, born and raised??
Why until last night? Because last night another one came, bit the dust, and was lying on the back door mat this morning..
My Blogdog, Adi
Now Adi is a real trouper. She goes with me almost everywhere, except when I leave the house. She goes outside with me, but not very often in the car, although she loves riding. Adi likes to be in my blogs, so far she has been mentioned in my blogs 82 posts since December, 2005.
As usal, while I'm blogging, Adi is right here with me. Tonight, in this picture, in the kitchen you will find us. Since we use a laptop, we might be most anyplace (remember this one?). The printer and scanner are in the bed room, so when I take the computer in to print or scan, Adi is in her bed in that room.
The bed you see goes with Adi wherever we are. In the car, it sits behind the passenger sear. When we are in the kitchen (or breakfast room) it is where you see it, under the breakfast room TV. When we are in the living room her bed makes it to between our recliners. If we forget to bring the bed,she lays in front of the couch on the rug.
Back to blogdogging. She is a buddy, more so, she is a watchdog. Look carefully, she is sleeping with one eye open. And her nose will twitch and ears perk up, just a little, if an event happens.
I don't hear the doorbell very good, Adi hears it real good. Either she will bark or run to the door to look through the glass window. One problem, she can't tell between some TV doorbells and the real one. It is a mystery to her how the TV bell can ring and no one is at the door.
Squirrels, yes, she sees them through the back bedroom window, just above her bed. Birds and cats too, or the neighbor's dog, don't escape her notice. If only, if only I 'd let her out.
Marty Morrow's Blogdog, Sebastian

The other pea?
In case you don't want to go there right now, Marty said: (I confess, I got the blogdog idea from him, he has a handsome blogging buddy as well, his Sebastian.)
- "My Blogdog.... This is sort of my view as I blog. As you can see, I have a constant companion who loves to watch outside between naps and keep one eye on me in case I decide to go outside. The squirrels can see Sebastian through the window and know he can't get to them so they prance around on the lawn about 15 feet from here. He use to get excited and bark but anymore, he just sighs and watches them in this position."
