    I’ve heard of the grasshopper mouse in an Arizona fauna/flora book I was given by my Arizona grandparents years ago. It said nothing about the rodent howling. How does its howl sound compared to a coyote’s howl anyway?

    What’s so frightening about Friday? I thought both adults and school kids like that day.

    Or to obfuscate the horrific horrors committed in the name of a religion on that day?

    Friday the 13th got its bad reputation when King Phillip the Fair of France had the Knights Templar arrested on a Friday the 13th and accused them of heresy. Some were tortured to get fake confessions and some were burned at the stake. King Philip the Fair borrowed a lot of money from the Knights Templar to finance his many wars and he also wanted their vast treasure. He never found the treasure.

    I think the scientists need to explore the connection between mice being bitten by scorpions and mice howling at the moon.

    As to “soccer” being concocted by the British, the type of football played there was Association Rules Football. Soon, players were called assocers and over time the game itself was called soccer.

    What names did they give to the monarchs(butterflies) I saw last Sunday after church? Most mice just squeak by instead of howling.

    Take care and God bless.

    In a similar vein, I suspect that “Sesame Street” calls a bunch of its characters “monsters” so that kids won’t fear monsters.
