Darned flies! (thoughts).
Well, this sucker landed under the computer monitor and so got dusty! This is about as off topic as it gets!
Thing is - I seem to have two distinct types to deal with in summer - the large ''blowfly'' that usefully goes towards light - and so can be zapped on a window. Then the other - like this lil varmint - the ''pesky'' fly!
The ''pesky'' does not worry about a bright window - it buzzes around my office looking for entertainment. This is usually trying to land on my bald head or nose and it then is war! It does however get its money's worth before final attrition and it seems almost every time I enter or leave office, one (another) sneaks in.
I take some pleasure in the activity around and in several of those foul smelling fly trap deals I have placed around the house and office but still - always a few that get inside. :frown: Summer is SWAT time :wink:
Reminds me of Circle Flies...
A couple of guys were out playing golf in Central FL late one afternoon, when the transplanted Yankee got ready to tee off. Every time he was ready to address the ball, he would swat around his head and face, then have to back off.
After several times of doing this, his buddy (a native Floridian) asked,
"What's the problem?"
The Yankee replied, "Every time I get ready to hit the ball, these stupid flies keep flying around and distracting me."
The Floridian said, "You mean those Circle Flies?"
"Circle Flies? I've never heard of them."
"Well, Circle Flies are the flies that are always buzzing around a horse's rear end."
Yankee: "Are you calling me a horse's *****?"
Floridian: "Oh, I would never do that. Of course, those Circle Flies sure are hard to fool." :danceban:
