    I still love to catch lightning bugs, especially when they’re flying slowly and are easy to scoop up. If you open your hand, they will just walk up your finger, light up, and fly away.

    We don’t have them in Utah. The climate’s too dry or the altitude’s too high. I should take a trip back east one day to see them.

    I hope to see a lightning bug one day, before I die.

    In my youth we didn’t have a TV. Some of the most fond memories were sitting on the porch with my sibs, mom, and dad in the evening after supper. A beautiful quiet evening with a soft breeze and lightening bugs everywhere. We would collect the bugs in fruit jars. Sometimes we just visited together on the porch. Occasionally, a neighbor or two would drop by and join the gossip fest. Great family times. Modern times have robbed us of a lot.

    When I first came to St. Pete in the ’40’s, there were lightning bugs all over the place. Now, none. I saw some in PA about eight years ago. I believe WI has a few, too.

    Possibly the funniest moment of my life happened while walking at dusk with an Aussie girl in upstate NY. All of sudden she grabs my arm and points into the woods, terror-stricken. “Wh-wh-what’s th-th-that?!” She thought the fireflies were glowing eyes. Too many horror flicks, maybe? (c:

    I know, it’s sad; the one time I ever see a lightning bug is in comic strips, TV shows, and movies.

    A little Skittish seems to have thornlike protrusions. Pasquale should avoid it. Trifling with that one has a catch to it. Let it go!

    A friend had a somewhat opposite experience.
    He (a Yank) was driving across the Outback at night and was amazed at all the eyes reflected in his headlights. “How could there be so many animals in this desert?” he wondered. Although they appeared to be staying on the shoulder, he slowed down in case some critter ran into the road ahead of him. Finally, he decided to se what kind of animal they were. He carefully pulled off the highway and onto the shoulder. As he came to a stop, he finaly saw what had the “eyes” — BEER CANS! Thousands of them.
