and so the weekend has come to an end.  cody bear is hanging in there.  thanks to everyone who wished him well.  i will blog more about his illness tomorrow or tuesday.

for now, i thought i would recap the weekend and show you photos of 2 things you love:  pickles …. and beetles.

here is pickles….with what looks like a mini swamp critter.  but it’s just a dirty chew-thing:

she’s been working that thing all night.  cody bear just laid next to her on the bed sighing.  “i wish iiiii could have a chew.” siigggghhh.

and since you have a tiny interest in large beetles.  (you do,…right???)

here is a bug box buzzybeegirl‘s neighbor picked up for her at a yard sale.

some scarabs, some rhinocerus beetles, some cicadas, some sagras.  top, second in from the right…she has a bright pink sparkly head.  i’m not an insect box preparer.  i like the living guys (outside of my home please) the best.  but, you have to appreciate the amount of work that went into this collection.  i may see one of these insects, but never all of them.  and you’re right:….they’re very big.

10 bux can get you alot, huh?!

ok. i have to get back to work.  cheers!

They’re in such perfect condition they almost look plastic. Don’t they degrade?

Oh, WOW, how beautiful! I know, too bad they’re dead and all that, but sometimes bugs have to sit still for humans to lessen their fears about them, and seeing emeralds and opals and carnelians must surely further improve the experience.

They sell these at a shop down in Old Town San Diego. It’s an interesting place to say the least!
