Wanders With Worms

Worms 9

“Wanders With Worms”, “Dances With Wolves”.. To each his own…Worms 10

Crisp, cool air and a damp road created quite a traffic jam on Fenwick Road. There were so many worms crossing back and forth that I had to watch my feet for my entire walk. I started to look for other road warriors but realized it was only about 33 degrees, 10 degrees too cold for slugs. So I spent the remainder of my walk thinking about designing hats and coats for the obviously chilly worms. I tried to find out how they survive out of the ground at current temperatures. I found something that said ,” Cool temperatures of 50, 60, 70 degrees F and moist conditions are best for earthworms. Earthworms aren’t active when it’s cold or dry.” As my favorite cousin says, BAHAHAHAHAHA, or something like that. You will just have to imagine me chasing worms around the road with my iPhone.Worms 11

The sun just came out! Worms can only survive for an hour in the sun! Hurry guys! PS. Did you or a friend come up with the perfect Indian name for you when we all saw “Dancing With Wolves”? Please send me your favorite Indian name.

The books and a booklet series based on each different yarn craft topic covered in "The Yarn Animal Book" (pompoms and other really easy yarn crafts, knitting, crocheting, rya, needlepoint and embroidery), are available on Amazon and Kindle.
