I'm thinking about him too.

Heh. Good he made that connection!

And indeed, Tea is the one thing I do miss when I'm not in the south!

Sounds like that billboard influenced him quite a bit!

I miss fireflies. Are Nebraskans the only ones who call them lightning bugs? Or maybe it's just my relatives who do that.

Peggy, people up here in Pennsylvania also call them lightning bugs.

Peggy, they're called both here in Illinois and Wisconsin, with the advantage seeming to go towards "lightning bug."

I think they should include a lightning bug/firefly question in this quiz

. I am mostly Upper MidWestern. No surprise there.

Peggy- I have always called them both... lightning bugs mainly when I was a kid. We used to catch them at my grandparent's home in Birmingham... so they probably called them lightning bugs.

Heck, I've always called 'em lightning bugs. That's what they taught my tarheeled hind end to call 'em so thats what they are to me. I understand fire fly, but, hell, lets face it, lightning is a lot more kick ass than fire.

I love that little bones fella Bou. He ain't right, but he's right.

Know what I mean?
