Hottest night yet & the electricity was shut off. When Father got up in middle of night to use the restroom, a wicked little mosquito rushed into our bednet. Until now, mosquito bites were not an issue. I believe it was that same mosquito that followed me into the shower. Under the light of my flashlight I spied the little pest. Splattered on the tile of the shower stall, he is now no longer an issue.
