The passenger

Meet my new friend, Stick. He was waiting here when I went outside to get in the car.

He rode along to the gas station, where he was very impressed how much the price of gas has come down in the last few days.

From there we went to Starbucks, but he said no thanks to the caffeine. The last I saw him he was on the windshield heading to the roof of the car, where I'm certain he waited for me to get out so he could jump on my hair. He's probably in the house right now.

One of those things drew blood from me when I was a kid. I shiver when I see them now.

All you can do is pray it doesn't branch out.

That's one tenacious mantis! I do believe that is a "she" instead of a "he". The males are much smaller than the females and, unless they move very fast, meet a grisly end immediately after mating.

That is good information. Thanks, Joe.
