Cricket Vintage Postcards

12 large crickets cost 72 cents at our local pet store! I picked up an aquarium full for my little boys (and myself).

In Chinese art the cricket symbolizes summer, courage, and a fighting spirit. The song of the little nocturnal insect is just enchanting.

Editor: Not that kind of Cricket! Marie: I like this vintage postcard too!

I'm not quite ready to throw out my thermometer but it is possible to calculate the temperature in Fahrenheit by adding 40 to the number of chirps produced in 15 seconds This formula is accurate to within a degree or so. The crickets probably shouldn't quit their day jobs though!
