I found my moth

I was watching TV tonight and when the news came on, people were commenting on the beautiful moths they have seen lately. Then when they showed a picture of it I knew it was the same one I saw in my bathroom. It's called a Cecropia moth.

Now if this subject is making you sleepy ...just press the X on the upper right hand corner and you will be out of your misery.

Here she is




The wing span is supposed to be about 4 to 5 inches. You will never see a more lovely moth. The one I saw had even more intricate markings..it almost looked like Aztec symbols. The web site said once you see one of these you will never forget it..and I haven't. I think my moth was bigger. It was a least 100 feet my 200 feet. But I have been know too exaggerate.

I am out on the deck, and this has not turned out to be the down time I imagined. A train is thundering down the tracks a mile away, and the wind is in the right direction to make it sound like it's right in my front door. Those fucking crows are getting on my last nerve. They are trying to get the babes out and about, and making me crazy...and to top it off, there is a soccer game going on in the community centre with 5,698 soccer mom's yelling at their kids...."Kick his ass"..."Trip him".. and then after that the soccer mom's and dad's assault the coaches and barbecue him. I love how parents these days teach there children well. Let's not forget my (over the fence) neighbour...he has started his Harley, his Corvette, and his lawn mower in the last hour. He never drives any of them, he just keeps on starting them, to be cool. HE DOES THIS EVERY NIGHT. I hate that asshole.

I'm going to phone the city to see if I can stop the ssssheezit. I used to like the froggie pond next door, but with all this other shit going on...I'm ready to eat me some frogs legs, make me a crow pie, and take the air out of all the soccer mom's vans in the Community Centre. Let's get serious, all those kids never wanted to pay soccer anyway...

I used to walk my dog in the park when the games were going on...and it was pathetic. The poor little tykes have to get on the field by 6:00 PM. Well, their parents only get home from work by 5:30...and stick a hot dog down their pie holes and rush out to the soccer field. All the while as the game is going on they are yelling...Justin...pull up your pants...Derek .. your shirt is on backwards...Jerome.. you are scoring between your own goal posts...it doesn't count bud! Some one else yells Shausa.. and I expect to see a large dog, but no, it's someones kid...geezzz... give the kid a real name!

GET ME TO WINERY!

It is too loud in summer....

Or I'm becoming a old fart bitch.......what say you?

this has nothing to do with your recent post, but rather other parts of your blog. when i first saw it, i thought of you. i wanted to post this in the comment box, but blogger won't allow it, so i am sending it to you via an email link.

poet said...

That is huge! Id be freaking if that flew in my house. Moths creep me out, with their mbig thick bodies.
Yo garden looks nice. Is there a reason you put the fence in? Just for definition? Its a nice fence. I used to hace similar made of green wire, not as nice as yours to keep the dog out of the flower beds..

Donna said...

Joan said...

Heh...cocobean you have found me.. I love your blog.. The moth looks very much the same as in the link. The markings are so distictive ...but I only had a few minutes to look at it ...wipe my ass ...and take it outdoors. I hope when the next unusual moth comes in the house, I am not sitting on the shitter. Gawd.

Joan said...

Poet... oops I should update my profile...it's jsmartinatmtsdotnet

But I will take a peak at it in your blog.

Brenda said...

That is one beauty of a moth for sure.

Rant on Miz Joan, a lady of any age should be able to sit on her deck and enjoy a little peace every so often.

Joan said...

Susan, I did it for definition, because it looked so blahhhh, however, now it looks like a cemetary...but at least it has a "look". And trust me, I have buried a few pets in there, plus killed at least 40 different plant species. It's my own personal boot hill. At night, I can hear zombies out there..
