If you’re going through Texas, be sure to locate a Buc-ee’s.

Loved seeing this truck advertising on a Texas road and how the owner combines assumed love of fishing with the business. Nice slogan–“Catching whatever bugs you!”

Next up is picture of a Mosquito Lion. A friend graciously let me photo his find at Grand Portage National Monument. With a quick look online, I learned they do not actually eat mosquitoes–unfortunately!

While in Minnesota, our dog noticed the rain water that had collected in our yard cart. He just had to jump up and play in it–really! He loves water, snow, mud, and dirt. Surprisingly, he is easy to keep clean even though he is mostly white. His hair has an oil coating that kind of operates like tefflon.

Do you want to use 100% recycled toilet paper? I don’t want to know how they do it–do you? Do note it is “Recycled without Chlorine, Inks, and Fragrances” per the label.
