Monarchia magicaria Andean red moth

Grapes slumbering; on..' Leafs shading, yeast patina'ed fruit.. Sun-downers tonight..! Grapes ripening on..' Vine gripping seasoned trellis. Purple skies..' ( thirst ) Grapes burgeoning on..' frame groans; the labourers gains..' Andean moth drinks..! ©Joe Maverick 15-5-2012

Merry Christmas Joe., , I did not want to leave you out of my Happy Jolly Momment.. Sending you a Christmas Carol.... -- Dashing through the snow In a one horse open sleigh O'er the fields we go Laughing all the way Bells on bob tails ring Making spirits bright What fun it is to laugh and sing A sleighing song tonight Oh, jingle bells, jingle bells Jingle all the way Oh, what fun it is to ride In a one horse open sleigh Jingle bells, jingle bells Jingle all the way Oh, what fun it is to ride In a one horse open sleigh HEY! :) <-- You got to love it I do hope you sang with me... Goodnight my friend... LINDA

It is very humid here in Michigan so far this season. What I need is a drying out so I can breathe again. Arizona? Hell, I'd rather be short of breath. Love, daver
