I plan on covering my stand with an EZ-UP canopy and lacing the inside with rope light. This is a really good time of year in Texas. gets down into the mid to low 80's in the evenings.
Good idea Kemo.

I may have to try this myself..... Or maybe my propane lantern.

Ive heard that those really big mosquitos eat the smaller mosquitos.

I have no way of verifying this

You may be thinking of mosquito hawks...aka crane flies...which don't really eat mosquitos at all as adults. I may need to get some bats to hang out on my porch though...

I imagine it would be pretty cool to be Batman. I just need a few million dollars for all his gear.

My Pop always said, "Leave well enough alone."

Being almost 40 years old... I guess I haven't learned the lesson yet.

So me being me.... I checked on my arch. You know to see if it had gotten strong.... Gave it a shake and .... crack..

I ended up having to take it down.

I guess I'll have to do it again.

ho hum...
