Grasshopper in a box

As long as I can remember the women in my family have kept a grasshopper box on their mantel piece. Keeping a grasshopper in one of these antique boxes is supposed to bring good luck to the home. I have always kept my box right in that good luck spot, but until today we had never had a real grasshopper inside it. Emma found an injured hopper on the side of our car today. It is missing an all important back leg, but other than that seems fine and has been eating leaves up a storm. We'll see how long this little creature lasts, but I can report a little bit of good luck has already hit the home of the Elsmo Four!
