One thing we could not hear were the chiggers in the grass. Robert had never heard of chiggers or katydids and thought at first that I was just making up those words. But, there just happened to be a dictionary in the cabin, so I looked up chiggers and katydids and he was so surprised to see them right there in print with a definition.
But true to form, he changed these words. Chiggers became "jiggers" and katydids became "lady-twits". I love it! Robert-isms - how fun! Robert speaks his own language and I am privy to it. Some people may not be able to understand his jargon, but most of the time there is a faint hint of the English language, so his meaning is usually distinguishable.

This looked to me like a wild butterfly bush.
Now you know what I like.
