    Northern Ontario (where Lynn Johnston lives) is notorious for its mosquito problems. The weather report includes mosquito levels.

    Yeah, but if you take a walk in the woods, you are going to need a really long cord!

    They’re twin-prop jobs. I understand Cessna was trying to figure out how to outfit them with seatbelts.

    See, all it took to get Lynn’s website working again was to threaten to print her comment from the treasury book for today’s strip. And yes, it is word for word the comment on the website today.

    Lynn’s Comment:
    In the Canadian north, you learn to live with flies. Legends, stories, and songs have been written about them, and no amount of spray will protect you when the season is nigh. I used to complain about the mosquitoes on the west coast, but the black flies, deer flies, and mosquitoes in northern Ontario make wimps out of them. On the GOOD side, the country here is beautiful!

    If you really want to see bugs…especially mosquitoes….move to the Mississippi delta during rice season…

    In Minnesota, the mosquito is the state bird.

    (Just kiddin’. I know it’s the loon.)

    Two mosquitoes were overheard discussing what to do with the cow they had just caught (not unlike the trolls in The Hobbit).

    “Let’s take her down by the river and suck her dry there,” said one.

    “Naw,” replied the other. “If we do that, the big guys will take her away from us.”

    We have several types of mosquito in S. Texas. The big black marsh mosquitoes are the worse because they are so large, you can feel them drilling into you for blood for their precious eggs.
