I have to share this story because I can't quit laughing about it.  My cute son and his scout troop went to sing patriotic songs at an assisted living center. 

This cute little elderly lady was sitting in front of us.  She was sporting some very beautiful butterfly barrettes.  I am sure they are all the rage with the elderly women.  The butterfly attached to the barrette with a coil so when she moved her head the butterfly moved kind of like a bobble head.  The butterflies were about the same size as a moth.

Well, my very helpful husband saw this insect hovering just above her head and thought it was real.  So in the spirit of scouting and doing a good turn daily he decided to rescue this poor women and swat the moth away.  Everyone around was watching as he realized it was attached and intentional.  The surprised look on his face was priceless as he apologetically slumped back into his seat. I did the hunched over, trying to be quiet, while tears are running down your face laugh, all the way through God Bless America, and Yankee Doodle Dandy. 

The cute little lady didn't even flinch
