Rowdy’s Dream Blog #255: I am at a convention.

I am at a convention, walking through the exhibit floor with many booths. Somehow I have accidentally bumped my watch buttons and now it shows only Hebrew letters. My error has also affected the giant TV, which is now showing a Japanese program about bugs.

Bugs and the modern age

Just thinking about ants or spiders makes me itch and shudder. Every time I read this week’s op-ed from the Bugman, I got a serious case of the crawlies. Richard Fagerlund, a nontoxic pest management consultant, says the number of inquiries from folks who think they have bugs on them has increased drastically over the years. He posits that it could be a result of pesticides, pollutants or genetically modified food.

The Crawlies

Got you under my skin

Twenty years ago, pest control expert Richard “Bugman” Fagerlund would get maybe one call a month about someone who said they felt imaginary bugs crawling on them. Today, he gets them almost on a daily basis.

Rowdy’s Dream Blog #209: I point out a walking stick bug.

I join my two women friends as they attempt to pole their small raft up the river. I take over both poles just as we enter a strong current. The raft is pitched back down river and the girls go overboard. I manage to eddy up the raft around a bend and I cling to some brush. The girls climb back on. We disembark. On the beach, I point out a walking stick bug that is carrying a small piece of paper. A beetle and a fly ride on its back. The girls are uninterested.
