Fortunately, we live at a high enough altitude to not have to deal with it, but the city of Asheville is under attack!  That’s right, it is the return of the cicadas!  Every 17 years, they emerge and go into a very noisy mating routine.  And, frankly, they are everywhere.


So how is this Herd related?  Queen Natasha has issued her verdict.  They are . . . tasty!  Yes, she considers them the perfect hiking snack and quite crunchy at that.  Trying to walk her as she swoops side to side to scoop them up is irritating to say the least.
