The growing chill doesn't appear to have bothered the few larger crickets who are still about, as I can hear them quite clearly when I go out back. For some reason there are none to the west, but several are present on the east side of the house. I think one or two are in my own back yard, though more are beyond my fence. It's more rustic back there, probably providing them with more hiding places.
Not only are the big crickets chirping, but my feral cats have been quite active this evening. Three of them have spent at least a few minutes racing around the back yard, two of them climbing part way up the walnut tree and jumping back down. Everybody is enjoying the cooling trend, except for those small crickets, which is another reason for me to enjoy it. And now I'm going to go enjoy some popcorn. It's a perfect night for it.
