I got a box in the mail last week from New York and waited a while to open it. I finally had time and opened the box from the bottom and heard a clicking sound on my floor. I found this single earring on my floor. The earring was impaled under the bottom of the box unharmed. So I contacted the person the box came from, not theirs. Then I contacted my post office, again no one is missing any. So I called the main post office and again no one is missing an earring. I contacted several women I know whom it might belong to and again no luck. So I am posting this single earring in the hopes someone I know might recognize it and it can rejoin is twin again.
I happened to find this huge black beetle pondering across my neighbors basement floor. She almost weighed as much as a full spool of quilting thread and was the size of the palm of my hand. She is a black rain beetle and is a rare find indeed. They take 13 years to mature and both sexes emerge just before rain and fall to mate then burrow underground again. The female does not fly only the male, so that was why she was walking in the basement. She was the neatest bug I have found yet. I set her outside to find a mate in the woods.
