Don't I know it - I've had knee surgery twice (both on my left knee) for the same things - torn cartilage and a broken kneecap, plus a torn tendon the second time, in 1972 and in 2001. I'm feeling it right now, but I'm used to it.
the moths only live for 24 hours...... they live in their cocoons for approx. 8-9 months..... after they hatch, they mate then die.... they don't eat; they don't have mouths..... gwaithmir knows soooo much more than i do about them!...... don't you just love the fall??
I am glad you like my Archaeopteryx. It represents two things for me. Of course, it represents evolution being an ancestor of present day birds and it represents one of my hobbies--bird watching. I have always appreciated the fact that birds are much, much older than man. It should make us feel humble but then the "Earth was created for man alone," you know.
hi liz, thanks for the friend request; hope to see you in chat more often :) ...... btw, that's a moth; i always forget what kind. gwaithmir sends me the cocoons in the winter and they hatch in the spring. that one you saw i was letting go. they are very big and beautiful!
