Today’s Fruit: Pineapple

October 12, 2007

But I ate the last piece before I realized that I did not take a picture. It was good though, nice and fresh.

Instead I give you this picture. I found this little guy in my driveway back in August, so I placed him on a bush.

    That’s me. Zoned out. Less boxes that way, even though at times, outside a box can be as lonely as inside a box.

    That doesn’t look like a caterpillar. It looks like a green fish photographed in a left to right stop motion photography. See the little “eye” on each “fish”?

    I feel like I am on acid and seeing trails (I fractured a law or two in my college days…ok?)

    Chris, see that little thing at the end? I was afraid it was a stinger. And why do all the little cirlces along its body look like his eye (if that is his eye)?

    We call those tomato worms. They’ll cut a tomato plant in half. It’s actually called a tobacco hornworm moth caterpillar, I think. But they eat tomatoes.

    I think Countrydew is right. We caught one of these on our satsuma tree when I was a kid. Was it a huge caterpillar? The one my dad put into a huge Maxwell House coffee can must have been 4 inches long, but you know how kid memories can be.

    Of course, I was just teasing about the fish;)

    I thought about you today when my father in law was talking about working “in the pits” at Paris Island. I knew exactly what “the pits” were thanks to your entry about that!

    See, you edjumacated me once again:)

    Have a great week!

    Thanks Countrydew, I am glad I know the name now. It gave me some good reading. If the stripes are V then it is the tomato type and if they are / they are the tobacco type, but either way they eat tomatoe plants like crazy. I am wondering why one was hanging around here.

    Chris They do grow as long as 4 inches, so your childhood memory is correct.

    I love pineapples. In fact, I ate some while watching the football game yesterday.
