    That's what we always called them. Use to tie a sewing thread right behind their head and use them for an airplane when I was a kid. Our toys were pretty simple.

    We called em targets. A Daisy Red Ryder and dime (that would be $2 nowadays) pack of BBs was fun for the day.

    To be followed by Cicada killing wasps.


    Killed about 20 last year but another 30 or 40 were successful in burying eggs & dead cicadas in our back yard. Best way I found to kill them is to run water in their burrow and smash them when they come out. Badminton raquets are also effective.

    I call them bait. Nothing will attract fish like one flopping around on top of the water.

    Katy Dids is what we call them. When they start singing summer starts. When they stop summer is over.
