Lord of the Flies

'Tis the season. . . The weather is turning cold and flies are congregating around the doors of our homes, awaiting their chance to seek shelter in the warmth and coziness within.

Yesterday, before bed, I noticed three or four flies had succeeded and had taken up residence in our house. YUCK! I vowed to kill them first thing this morning.

Upon waking this morning, I discovered not three flies, but seven times that number! I have spent the last hour hunting them down. I am proud to say that I have now killed over 20 flies and our house is once again a No-Fly Zone.

All I can say is that I pitty the poor Egyptians who had to live through the Plague of the Flies. What a miserable malady!

Best of luck to you and your fly hunting endeavors this fall.

I love to suck 'em up with the vacuum. Makes me feel powerful :)
