INVASION OF THE MANTIS

 
Yesterday found me at my ever faithful Raven Resort for a fun day at the pool. It was absolutely beautiful weather wise, so I just had to take advantage to tan my body some more. I met up with my friends Maxwell, Jonathan and one of Max's friends, who is a local artist. She was so cool to talk to, a very warm, spiritual and deep lady. One never knows what the day may bring at the Raven. Earlier, Wendy was telling us of her first up close encounter of seeing a Praying Mantis, and how meticulous they move. They do seem to watch your every move, have you ever noticed that? Later she regaled us a story from her young years, where she and a friend met Michael Jackson, who was young at the time, and was up and coming then. He invited them up to his Penthouse his family had rented while vacationing. Pretty cool story. An hour later, Max says to yours truly. "Don't move." Well...low and behold right next to me was a Praying Mantis!! It kept walking toward me, over my legs, sat, and looked up at me!!!! Cool, but creepy..... and went next to Wendy. I just had to get my phone........
 
 
The Mantis started going toward her girls, so she flicked him off, but the Mantis just hung with us for the rest of the day.....
 
Hellooooooo!
 
And the weird part? He showed up as a Michael Jackson song came on? He even appeared at times to be swaying to the music? Could it have been Michael reincarnated? Wendy found it to be a very significant moment as we all did. The pool's last day was yesterday, so it was definitely a memorable closing to the season.

And a season it was!!!! Even the unicorn had had enough.
