A Quarter Fly
Picture found here.
When we moved to Oklahoma, our family got to live in a little apartment for a few months.
An apartment that flies liked to fly into.
So we started a tradition.
Every family should have a tradition regarding houseflies, don't you think.
So, when we moved into our home, we had even more houseflies.
Because, when doors are propped open, bugs will come in.
I told the people of the house,
"Each fly you kill-I'll pay you a quarter."
Money well spent.
Last summer I handed out a few quarters.
I guarantee you, they will bring me a few dead flies as soon as the season rolls around.
And I won't even have to ask.
What do you think the price of a spider should be?
(There was a tarantula on my front porch last summer. miss s saw three huge spiders, a few huge moths, fireflies and a frog/maybe a toad trying to knock down our garage door one evening last week. Just thought you'd like to know.)
