Bug Week ?????

Woo Hoo!!! Looks like Bug and her many relations are being featured on Animal Planet next week! Looked up from studying my manual and saw a blurb about "Bug Week" starting Monday night, Nov. 4th. Couldn't check it out further, as they don't have next week's TV listing up yet. And I didn't see the blurb again. I do hope I wasn't hallucinating! LOL
(I just hope they don't mention Uncle Herb. Who would have thought someone his age .... well, suffice it to say, the family found the whole thing terribly embarrassing.)
I get a real kick out of bugs. June bugs, fireflies, dragon flies, lady bugs, those little jumping spiders and the big orb web spiders, praying mantises (sp? That just doesn't look right!), crickets and the list goes on.
I am NOT enthused about palmetto bugs or other variaties of roaches, despite my selection of that as my screen handle here on WU. You want to see Bug jump? Point over my shoulder at the wall behind me and stammer, "R-R-R..OACH!!!!! I'll knock down anyone that's in my way, as I head out the door!
When I was a kid, I spent many an afternoon, sprawled out on my stomach in the yard, watching ants and whatever else wandered by. And many a summer evening, watching the lightning bugs.
There's so many great bug pics here on WU, too. I've really enjoyed looking at them.
There was a man here in Charleston, that posted a regular journal about an orb web spider that was in his garden a couple of years ago. He has some cool stuff on his website:
So, how many of you out there are bug fans? What's your favorite bug? What's your favorite bug story? Anyone have any old wive's tales about bugs?
