Oh great full dragonflies! What had they been eating to be so full? We would all be grateful to be enlightedned, as would the dragonflies, no doubt. Really, I can't be too critical; I spelled "duct" as "duck" in another post. I'm sure duct tape would work for patching up leaky ducks, though. (Note: not a single Strauss jab.
) That is interesting, though, that the dragonflies seemed attracted to music about them. <P>There was apparently not enough powder in the pistol Karl Beethoven used, for, though both barrels fired, the bullets bounced of his head. He <I>was</I>, knocked unconscious and had a substantial flesh wound. Of course, the alternate explanation is the comparative hardness of his German head.
