Bionic Fly


I still don't have a screen door. The landlord was just here. Looking for the rent. He said he'll try and get the door in next week. Hmmmmm heard that for about the last 2 months.

Anyway - being as this is the mid-west we get flys. And I have the daddy of all flys in this house right now. I'm watching him buzz around as I type. (I can do that - I'm a good typist, just a bad speller!)

I've hit him several times with a newspaper. Nothing. I've sprayed him with hair spray. Nothing. I even shot him with bleach cleaner. Nope, still flying.

Next step - blow torch. Yep - I HATE FLYS IN MY HOUSE!! I'll burn the damn place down before I let him live here.

Whew. There. I feel better now.

What has my life come to?!?!? For cryin' out loud - I'm FLY BLOGGING!!!!!

Don't worry. They don't live all that long.

I can relate; can't stand the little buggers. They bothered me growing up on the farm and they bother me even more now... probably because they were so bad then. I don't know.
Thankfully they have short life spans. ;)

Let another one in, take bets, and race them. Should be a grand old time!

Up your renters insurance first.

At least you won't have to worry about the rent if you burn the place down.

At home in Georgia if you have repairs that need to be done to your house and your landlord refuses (or convienently forgets all the time) You can have the repair done yourself, and remove the amount from your rent provided you have a reciept.

Dunno about out there tho

Tammi, my cats kill any flies that make it through our doors. I'd tell ya to get a cat, but I'm thinking you are allergic to them, aren't you?
