I forgot the aquarium with the diver beetle and the three freshwater snails.

It is getting cooler now as it is fall (and rainy rainy rainy today), and apparently crickets like warmth. We have their bucket in front of our woodstove and they move to the warm side when we spin the bucket. We have at least 3 females. How do we know? Female crickets have 3 long spikes at their butt end - one lays the eggs in the dirt. Males have 2.

I hafta go, Sawyer (middle son, 5) is traumatized as I demonstrated in his printing book with a crayon and it can't be erased.....he wants me to buy him a new book. I better go empathize.
