Neither Rain, Nor Snow, Nor Sleet, Nor Bugs . . . .

I've been meaning to blog about this, but haven't had time.

A couple of weeks ago, near the Catonsville Post Office, I saw a mailman equipped with:

  1. a pith helmet,
  2. mosquito netting all the way around from the top of his helmet to his waist, and
  3. a large fly-swatter at the ready in his right hand.

I gather he is not fond of cicadas. He was certainly well equipped to deal with them. I only wish I had had my camera with me.
