My room is host to about a dozen ladybugs!! I think it's a sign.
I mentioned it to the desk clerk, and she offered me another room, but I turned her down. She related to me that in Virginia, it is illegal to exterminate ladybugs.
And so, looking like the artificial shoe-prints on a dance-floor diagram, they move about in some sort of angry tango on my hotel room window pane. They must love the bigness of this gibbous moon, nearly full, as it rises over the ridges of middle Virgina.
Going to be a cold one. Hope the little dotty bugs survive the cold pane plain they've settled on.
How they got to room 317 at the Holiday Inn Express, I'll never know.
Other notes: Pedro's South of the Border complex in South Caroloina is HUGE. The signs leading up to it are surreal: "Virgin Sturgeon and Unused Bagels!"
I safely motored past without stopping. Of course, I haven't figured out North Caroloina's fascination with WIGS! once I crossed the border
