I can see my house from here....

When I came home, I noticed a large grasshopper in the kitchen porch.  It was clearly alive, but it wasn't trying very hard to get away.  Then I noticed it had something wrong with it's back leg.  It was either injured or deformed.  I didn't want to leave it on the porch, and didn't have the heart to step on it, so I scooped it up with a shovel and tossed it high into the air outside....

It tumbled slowly end over end as it arced through the air, until it finally fell into the grass.

As God as my witness, I thought grasshoppers could fly.
