    To tell you the truth, Trish, with all this fixation you have about bugs and stuff, I’m beginning to wonder what your husband looks like.

  • Gary, he doesn’t even have a moustache and I don’t think he would contemplate trying this one for size! He’s pretty normal … whatever that is … sometimes acts as spotter for me and occasionally even looks at the pictures on the computer :)
