I'm off to fight the mosquitoes for some raspberries.
I anticipate a hurried, heated exchange of berries for blood, although I'll do my best to minimalize the casualties on my side.
Jeans, socks & shoes, bug lotion applied to ankles, arms and face... probobly topped off with the non-breathing, plastic rain coat. Hood up, in all likelihood.
Wish me luck.
This is exactly how I pictured myself heading through the 20 feet of long grass for the rhubarb...except I would be wearing rubber boots with my pants tucked in...and hood up for sure!ReplyDelete
How did it go?? They - the mosquitoes - didn't pick you up and carry you away did they?? There's certainly enough of them.
