Chris...very funny!! We actually spent last summer walking up and down the road stomping on the tent worms as they crossed the road...we'd start out keeping count but once we got past one hundred we usually lost count!! We had a good time...well as good a time as stomping worms can be...lots of laughs...Last year was bad for them...looks like they will be again this year!!! robin.

How true, Robin, we can only discover the light and dark of everything by living... Oh, those nasty tentworms. Ugh. Cherry blossoms are beginning to bloom in an orchard by our home. Very good! I adore the smell and love wandering beneath them...

BTW, did you receive my notification of the award you were given on my blog? See yesterday's post. :-)

Tent caterpillars- yuck. I remember my dad setting them on fire when I was little. I cannot remember exactly how he did it(I'll have to ask him) but I do remember seeing the caterpillars writhing about in their nests. Strange that I did not feel sorry for them. Maybe because Dad had such a hatred for them.
Sad we have to endure the bad with the good, nut maybe that is what makes us appreciate the good even more. :)

Dear Robin,

We would like to object to your negative characterization of tent worms.
