  20. Great facts! I had no idea dragonflies were so short-lived. I'll be looking at them differently from now on. They've been all over our neighborhood all summer.

    1. I don't think the dragonfly one is correct. They can survive several months. :)

  21. I had no idea about the dragonfly. I envy the snail as I sit here yawning! Angel has a very full vocabulary!

    Hope you had a nice day today Sandee! I know we're all sad because of Sparkle but we're trying to smile as she would have wanted. Give Little Bit extra smooches and some hugs for me.

    1. It is very sad about Sparkle. I remember lurking over there many moons ago. Our babies are so very precious. :)

  22. Those are interesting, but have to question the one about a dragonflys life span. As a child I caught a few and kept them for days before turning them loose---just saying.
