    Here in Imlay City the grasshoppers have been very bad this year in my garden, much to the delight of Minnie.

    i had never been before; it seemed like the 4-H clubs bought all the same breed of everything and split it up.
    we went thursday and it was pretty cool out. hey, speaking of cool out...whattup with this crazy weather!

    okay...back to your topic...what about when they scarf down a huge piece of anything and you can see it in their throat. ack!
