My dad used to say that once in a while, after we moved from Lycoming Co. to Ventura Co. (CA). Then, when my grandparents moved out here, Grandma planted rhubarb, but... it was not the same.

I used to talk about my mother's scalloped potatoes. Finally my wife asked mom for the recipe.
It was Betty Crocker, from a box.

Synchronized fireflies, Jim! Never knew such creatures existed! Thanks for sharing this fabulous phenomenon!

I grew up in the Piedmont area of North Carolina - just sold my house there - where "lightning bugs" (the common variety) are among the first heralds of summer, accompanied by cicadas and tree frogs. SOJOURNER will allow me to come and go whenever I like, and next May will surely find me on my sister's back porch in NC. I'll remain there to enjoy the dogwoods, azaleas, and summer's sweet awakening - then leave when the mosquitoes begin biting as the worst of summer's heat begins to set in. Who knows? Maybe I'll coax her and my BIL into going with me to experience the synchronized fireflies. According to this article, they can be found not too far away and in spots far less populated by crowds of people. And we can now camp out - inside! https://www.rei.com/blog/news/rare-f...north-carolina

I chased wood rats (aka packrats) out of my 1993 Mercedes cabriolet (convertible) with mothball bars, like these, https://www.amazon.com/6OZ-Moth-Bar-.../dp/B0037PGI60

I cut the hook off them, one lives under the hood in a handy flat space behind the driver-side headlight, and the other lives in the bottom of the compartment that the convertible top folds up into. they last a few months in warm weather, probably longer in cold. yes, my car has that faint mothball smell when its parked, but driving open top, you don't smell a thing.

beats finding one of these every week...

Well done, John! I'd gladly endure the mothball smell to rid myself of destructive pack rats! Gonna put your idea in my file against the day I may have to use it!
