Did you ever use a June bug as a toy?
Growing up in Red Hill in the 1940's sometimes depended on personal improvisation to provide for fun activities. One of our favorites about this time of the year was to tie a cotton string to one of the rear legs of a June bug and allow it to fly around you while tethered to the string. Helium filled balloons were hard to come by in this area but the June bugs attached to the string in our fingers was an amusing substitute. I always tried to let my June bug go free after he tired out.
