Caterpillars in local Park.

Caterpillars, we all know they turn into beautiful, majestic butterflies as time moves on. They say it is a beautiful event, which I never had time to watch. Or, even because it was at times hard to find one, that was transforming into one. I should check out the dates, and try to watch it happen sometime.

As it would seem I could have a chance. Like yesterday, we were walking through the local park here, as I watched on the ground the many caterpillars crossing the trail. I became wary, and tried not to step on them. Then I looked over at the tree, a birch tree, and seen it covered in caterpillars. I found that was very interesting. Smothered in caterpillars.

Then, as I moved on, I noticed all the birch trees were covered with, caterpillars. Phenomenal,  I thought. Then I looked up, and seen that all the leaves were gone. Interesting. I gazed out farther into the distance on top of a hill overlooking the park. Wow. All the leaves, are gone. Many acres, eaten up!

You walk through the small walking trails that are dotted through the forest, and in some areas you can see them falling on your own person. They seemed to avoid the fir trees, and maples, but just love to eat up the poplar and birch trees. It almost made it look like early spring, all over again, just with the green crust of the leaf left over.

This was the first time, I had ever seen something like this. I am unsure of how widespread this carries on throughout the province, but they do say it can kill some trees. Some trees will survive. Perhaps it is the dry season we had so far, with just a little rain here and there, that helped propagate the species.

They sure can make waste of a forest, pretty fast. For small creatures.  It makes you think, if any type of bug from another country makes it in, how hard it could be to get rid of the threat.

Have a great day, till next time..

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

Supermarket Guy 5 doing very well.

Have approximately 15 % written on Part 5 so far. It is going really well, but the first few chapters maybe more drama and less action. Relationships come into play as the main characters father and mother first meet. A meeting of the eccentrics, one extreme male dominate character with a woman who takes liberty to the maximum extreme, looking back to the 70's, where we remember the 8 track tape and black and white tv. When smoking was cool. A decade where the men held the dominance in affairs and in the household, and the women usually held the fort at the home. Things have changed for the better through the late 80s and 90s, as a womans place in the world has become much more equal these days, becoming bread winners and with the men sharing allot of the household chores these days in many families. Perhaps Margaret Thatcher paved the way for many women all over the world. Now even governments make sure there is a good number of women in their cabinet in order to govern, and man…
