My Name is Patricia

My name is Patricia. I didn't like my name when I was a kid but grew to get used to it. Now that I'm an adult I do like my name and like being called Patricia. I used to get called just about every version of Patricia that you can think of. Pat, Patty, Trish, Trisha, Theresa, and the list goes on. Like I said when I was a kid I really didn't care which version I got. My mother however did. Her name is also Patricia. She goes by Pat. She would make such a fuss if people called me Pat. She would say,"My name is Pat. She's Patricia". Maybe that's why I didn't really care what people called me. When I got older I discovered that I am a Patricia.

About The Dragonfly

The Dragonfly

Photo Credit Patricia Penner I don't know about you but I love dragonflies. I love to watch them fly? They are so graceful and fast. Have you ever watched one fly. They seem to glide. Yet you wonder how they fly with four wings. I've watched in awe as they seem to skip on the water. I had the not so great experience of being up close and personal with one. It was a hot summer day so I opened up the patio door to let some fresh air in and I dragonfly flew in. I love dragonflies but that sucker was big. It seemed to take up the whole room I didn't want to kill it. I just wanted it to go back outside. I ran outside to my neighbors house and ask her to go shoo it out. She did. She wasn't afraid of a little old dragonfly like I was. The guy in this photo was nice enough to sit on a branch so I could take pictures of him. Nope I wasn't afraid. He was outside where he was suppose to be. I hope you find some interesting facts about dragonflies as well as some dragonfly products you can't live without.

The dragonfly can move in six different directions. the can hover like a helicopter fly backwards, fly straight up, down. They can fly left and right.
