Rise and Shine --- Sounds of summer

Good Morning and welcome to a Wednesday in a long line of Wednesdays!

Usually, one of the good things about summer is you can sit outside (maybe with a cool beverage) and enjoy looking at the stars and listening to the crickets. Maybe you can run around a little bit, play tag or kick-the-can or something.
This year, though, it's been virtually impossible. The mosquitoes are just out of hand.
Last night, for instance, we spent more time slapping our legs (missing those blasted things) than playing anything. After about five minutes it was back in the house for some serious scratching.
Now, I know nature is nature, but, come on, it's getting ridiculous. Sure, we can use a can of Off or something and get some relief, but a can a night is a bit too much. Those citronella candles don't seem to work on this bunch.
We shouldn't have to wear a hazmat suit just to go outside on a nice summer night.
Then again, it might be better than the slaps.
