Emergence of crickets was one of the after effects of the rain, which was good and solid for something like one hour on Saturday from about 6pm, and the gutters overflowed.
Then at nighttime out came the crickets, singing , or do they chirp.
They must have been emerging from hibernation because they were fairly loud with the windows open. Their joy however, was short lived, because the rain didn't last too long, and neither did their chirping.
Howevever the ground was given a good soaking and softening.
Must have also awakened the ants, because there were a huge number around early on Sunday.
So, a layer of poison was sprayed," making hay while the sun shone".
This morning we got two newspapers delivered, The usual Canberra Times and the Sun Herald.
Then later on, our delivery person returned to retrieve the incorrectly delivered Sun-Herald.
An hour later our delivery person was again around trying to retrieve what he said were three incorrectly delivered newspapers nearby to our place. So, I don't know how much time he spent trying to remember where his deliveries had gone astray. Hope he gets it correct in the coming days.
In all the time with the current subscription, the delivery has only gone astray on less than a handful of days; once when it happened, I rang the newsagent, and they brought the correct paper around to our front door.
I don't know if that sort of commitment would occur with a CT direct subscription.
Until next time
