Crickets in the Bathroom

Crickets don't survive in Texas. We get those nasty cicadas and grasshoppers. Nothing so lovely and small as crickets that sing when night falls. In Texas the cicadas sound like a saw at a saw mill. Fortunently they eventually fade into the background, much like the sound of the cricket does when you live in California. Shawner's gecko has grown up a little and is now eating big crickets. I brought them home yesterday and was surprised to hear them rubbing their wings together and singing! They were so noisy in the boys room last night we ended up putting them in the bathroom and they're STILL singing. Poor tired little guys. But I love the sound and am enjoying it.
