heading for the bar, I heard gunshots. They were shooting caterpillars – sound ludicrous – yes it does, but it true. There is a type of hairy caterpillar that breeds around now: you often see them in their thousands on the road- nose to tail – or is it just tail to tail with them. Despite their harmless appearance, they carry a substance which causes extremely bad skin irritation. So they shoot the nests out of the trees before they hatch. Strange but true . . . .
The lunch referred to is the same as that featured in the previous post: Postcard to Anna and Pietro…… yes it was that good . . . .
It’s carnevale time here in Italy! (And I believe somewhere in Brazil……)
This was designed by Sans Souci Studios in Vermont.
It was drawn with my Noodler’s Creaper, using Australian Roses in Black Swan ink, also from Noodler’s. The black is a Pigma Micron.
