Re: Cattails/Punks


I'm thinking I may have misinterpreted your post on the cattails exploding in a sexual manner. That's why I chuckled. Don't ask me why. You probably meant it in a totally different way.

It must be the medication I'm on. Sorry. emoticon

Re: Cattails/Punks


I love cattails, they grow everywhere in Indiana, mainly along ditchbanks and other bodies of water. My favorite surprise is a sandhill crane emerging from a patch and taking flight with their long legs.

As for "punks," I worked at a fireworks store when I was 19, and the punks we sold were actually camel poop based because I guess it made them slower burning. They're nice because you don't have to have a live flame near highly flammable products.

I love the smell of newly cut mint fields. In the summer time, it's like Wrigley's Doublemint gum everywhere!

Re:


Hey [sign in to see URL] saw this. To the OP, I can verify your memory. As a young boy I went to a summer day camp in Chatham and they had Cattails or what we called "punks". We would take them home and burn them as punks/insect repellents in the summer time. i don't remember if they worked or not. Great memory!

We always picked them on the way home from vacation. But you had to dry them before they were burned. Sometimes they would blow up and have a ton of little [sign in to see URL] would run around throwing or beating each other emoticon

Great when they burned smell and to keep bugs away
