“Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.”
― Neil Gaiman

To combat the hot weather and the muggy-ness (and the 90% humidity) we’ve been blowing an industrial sort of fan from the doorway into the house to bring in some cool air. It works, a little bit – for example the other evening we used it to balance all the stuffing that Buddy had ripped from his brand new pheasant toy. Then we turned it on. Oh the fun!


But today it became a dragonfly lure, just before the second storm of the day hit we noticed that dragonflys were starting to hover around the back of the fan, lured by the blowy bits.
