One thing about living in Manitowoc and Sheboygan that I don't think I appreciated as much as I should have was just how few bugs there were. I mean, there were bugs; mosquitos, spiders, basement crawly things. After each trip back to visit Becky's parents in Wisconsin Rapids, I did notice how few mosquitos we had on the Lakeshore. But man, I'd forgotten how many bugs there are in Green Bay.
There's a park Becky would like to take our kids to for pictures, but it is so mosquito infested that she just can't. And spiders. Wow, so many spiders. Big, healthy, well fed spiders. Sometime toward the end of September or beginning of October I'll have to get a picture of one of the glass walls on a UWGB campus building. The whole thing gets to be a giant spider community. I mean, the community is giant. And the spiders are pretty big too. It's a mix of creepy and fascinating.
