Monday Mischief: Spricket

Sofie here. It’s fall in Maryland. The Cave Crickets, also known as Spider Crickets or ‘Sprickets,’ are starting to invade the garage, and occasionally the house. The cats love to torture them. We find lots of parts and pieces. V and the kids are afraid of them so they put a little cup over them and then call Mom to remove them to the greater outdoors. Sometimes, they even put a sticky note on the cup that says ‘BUG!’

As you can see, I am not in the least bit bothered by these jumpy funny antennaed buggy things. Lately, it seems like someone is bringing them upstairs to the kitchen because Noel seems to be spending a lot of time staring under the stove.

Oh my, Noel, sprickets for supper.

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

Just another DogDaz morning at the zoo ❤
