Cicada Bugs

Toby Beck sent me this picture, which he says shows me and Eddie Hackman's arm pointing at a cicada on a tree in front of Beck's house.

Mike Sylwester and Eddie Hackmann pointing at a cicada bug on a tree in front of the home of Theodore Beck on Faculty Lane in Seward, Nebraska. The image was scanned from a photo belonging to Toby Beck.

There was a big infestation of cicadas the first year we moved to Seward. They were everywhere. Here is a picture of a tree (not from our neighborhood) covered with cicadas.

The cicadas emerged from their outer shells and left the empty shells on the trees.

We boys would gather them and put them down the girls' shirts.

Or we would just walk around with the bugs or their shells stuck to our shirts.
