    I called them lightening bugs growing up also (NY).

    We used to put them in jars to make lanterns, then be sad in the morning when we just had a jar of dead bugs. Then we'd do it all over again.

    That word will be the one thing that finally breaks this country up into several smaller sections - all depending on how the natives grew up pronouncing it. And the tree doesn't even grow everywhere!

    I have actually heard the word come out of people's mouths as pee-can. And, yes, a pee can is just as you describe. That pronunciation is horrible. But I do not say that - mine is pee-kahn. Not too much stress on the first syllable, lest you think I go around saying PEE-can.

    So now naiad, myself, and Joanie/doc have our pronunciations - see, the battle fronts are appearing along historical lines...

    So, doc - do the rest of the words now!

    Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.

    Dear Journal -

    8 a.m. finds me on the porch, kind of bummed in a diffuse, general way. I haven't been writing because that is how my last two weeks have gone - nothing either horrible or glorious, but my general mood has been one of "meh". I think I know what the problem might be - not enough fresh air.

    See, in the summer, as soon as the weather gets even a little humid and/or warm (but especially humid), hubby likes to make a mad dash for the central air and crank it. And that always seems to coincide with a mood slide for me. Weird, curious, whatever, but I have lived long enough in houses with central AC to really think this is a pattern. And then I just do not want to do much of anything - bare-bones cooking, cleaning, no gumption to do anything except stare at some blue light or something like that. Which is kinda scary, as I, years ago, had a HUGE spell of depression, and I just don't want to go there and these funks feel like a slide right into that. Diet coke has been my best friend.

    This year is a cool and wet summer for us in this corner, so it isn't like the heat is driving me indoors. Yuck. And hubby does change out the air filters on a regular basis. The HVAC is geothermal.

    So, here I sit on the porch, trying to absorb some good air ions.

    In other news, First and Fourth are getting ready to go to YMCA horse camp in a week. It will be the first camp of any stripe ever for both of them. Last weekend the Family Crabbcakes went on a little road trip to find the entrance of the camp - it is hidden down a dirt road in a neighboring county, and Fourth wanted to be sure we knew the way beforehand. We had a chance meeting with the camp director's wife, who told us we could wander around on top of the hill for a spell - all other residents were together down by the lake, and she radioed to all and sundry that we were up there, and as soon as it looked like some folks were headed back up our way, we left.

    Hubby got me a birthday present - a watch. My last one from him broke - that one had been a gift from him as well, on the occasion of our first anniversary, so it held out about 16 years (broke a while ago and I had been trying to find a jeweler to repair it but not succeeding). The last one was a granite-faced watch from Fossil. This one is a wooden-cased and wooden-strap watch. Yup, the watch actually has a link strap made entirely of wood. Hubby knows I am really, really hippie-granola in my jewelry tastes. I am probably the only gal in existence up would take a black raw diamond necklace over a highly polished white diamond one any day of the week.

    My Ancient One is still doing well. Nineteen and 1/2 years old and counting! Not bad for a kitty cat!

    And, that seems to be all. I am feeling a bit more settled after sitting here, listening to birdsong, breathing in fresh air from the woods, and watching one of my cats keep me company. I love cats. Oh - seems that hubby will be taking Fourth to a localish animal shelter on Wednesday mornings to play with the kittens and scoop poop. That was Fourth's request - to visit an animal shelter and actually volunteer there.

    Well, Journal, thanks for the company!
