Where’d the fireflies go?

Has anyone seen a firefly lately? I haven’t. They used to be all over the place down here when I moved to Florida 13 years ago. I’ve talked to people from around the area and no one can remember seeing one for the longest time but they also didn’t even realize they were gone. I think it’s space aliens. They’ve captured all the fireflies and they’ve erased most of our memories of ever having them….

By writing this I’ve probably made myself a target. Don’t be surprised if this blog entry mysteriously changes to one about cooking brownies or something but I had to speak out while my memories are still my own…

Seriously though… Anyone seen a firefly lately?

    When I was growing up in eastern PA we called them lightning bugs.

    I saw some last year when I was visiting this little portion of western NC; t’was late summer, I think. Too late in the season now for them, but did not see any when I arrived back in early October. Hmmmmmm…

    Damn you.. alien bastards!

    I’m tellin’ ya’ll…

    I don’t know WHY they’re abducting the fireflies but they’ve made great strides in getting all of them without our knowing!
