For the past week every night i have all these lovely crickets coming into my house and as i turn off the lights to watch tv, that is when they seem to come out more. I have heard crickets in the house are good luck and i don't mind that but when they start singing like Buddy Holly and the Crickets i start to wonder? What is your take on this?..am i lucky?..am i being visited? or what?

@Rosekitty Let me tell you a little story. Many many moons ago, when the grass was tall, and the prairies were free, and the maidens game, I took a hitchhiking trip north a few miles. Got a ride from a guy...I was a long hair (yes, I had hair then) and he asked a few questions then asked if I wanted a couple of cookies. Plain old sugar cookies...except he'd used an oil base he extracted from some homegrown with a double-cooker as 'butter' in the mix. A couple minutes after he dropped me back on the highway, I could hear colors. That stuff was good.

How nice ! I had a few home crickets when I was living in the countryside, but the ones here seem to be shy, and I never heard one in my house. You are certainly lucky !

This is weird, we have plenty of crickets outside, but no one ever came inside the house. Are they searching for something? (Brownies??)

I hardly ever hear crickets much. But I always hear, at the end of the summer that is, Cicadas. They are loud, real loud. And ugly and nasty looking also.

@Rosekitty If you close the windows are they still loud? I would doubt that. Maybe they have some sort of device that has a frequency that would deter them from being so close to the house.

Watching Tele in a dark room is not great for eyes. Probably these Crickets come to warn you about this. Next, the crickets do not have tele at their place. So they find it odd when they find you watching something on the Tele. They find it fascinating to them - what makes you glued to your tele set Oh wait... ever since you have been "R"... they can be watching you...

I know one thing. I LOVE music from the 1950s. Doo Wop and rock and roll music is my "cup of tea."

I've never heard about them being good luck before. Sometimes we have one or two in the basement. I can hear the chirping through the heating vents.
