...The story of Barney Bug has not the happy ending I would have wished for, and I'm glad I posted about his pleasanter moments in life before the end of the day.
I will spare you the details, but suffice to say I had a serious talk with Susanna about "an eye for an eye..." and all that.
It's my opinion that dismemberment before death is a bit severe a penalty in return for a bug bite.
I think poor ol' Barney was trying to send the memo "I WANT to go home. ...NOW."
Anyway... assuming there's a place for bugs in Heaven, Barney probably has a real nice mansion. HA!
*(Presumably next door to Mattie's Cricket, Shauna) ;-P
I don't think Sue is ready for a kitten just yet.
* "Mattie" is my youngest sister. See Shauna's comment here;
On another note, if I had known Susanna when I was four years old, I might have been one nervous bug; but I sure would have been jealous of her big brothers!
This picture is not set up. I actually enjoyed spying on these two from across the yard one evening.
Zachary was weaving a flower into Susanna's hair while she held still so patiently. It was precious to watch, and warmed my heart:-)
I am so thankful for my camera to "capture" a few of these fleeting moments so I have something to jog my memory when the cobwebs take over!
What a lovely little girl! (I can't believe she belongs to ME!)
