Brought a fresh milkweed home tonight and found two of the three plants we’re eaten down to stems and one crawler had not moved to the newer plant. Set up the new one and pulled this guy off the stem, then offered him the new digs. You can’t just put them where you want them, hafta let them walk there or the curl in a ball snd fall.
Cmon buddy go get it!

$2 garage sale find today. Wheaties Jogometer.
I'm reading it was in a cereal box either in the 1940s or 1950s- whatevs. 2 5/8" diameter.
I'm a runner so I thought this was cool. Back then a jog would mean a quickened pace of walking... ymmv :)

Oh that's a cool find. I had something like that in the 70s when I ran high school track. Not just me, a lot of us had a distance counting device, but I can't remember at all what it looked like
