Seeking Human-Sized Fly Swatter

One thing that comes with cooler temperatures in Iraq is the increase in the amount of flies. The flies are not normal here. They stick on you, as if hanging out for a ride. Not just one annoying fly, but 5 or 6 at a time. They do not linger on your shoulder or your back, but instead they linger smack dab in the middle of your face, on your eyelid even. A sway of a hand or a thunk against your own face does not help. Oh no...they hang there, unbothered by this human-sized thumb or finger that happened to disrupt their stay.

I always wondered how the people in those "Donate" commercials did nothing to move the flies from their lips or foreheads. Now, I understand...

I am sick and freakin' tired of the flies. We will be wishing for the warmer temperatures before long! And, Fall has just begun!

They go for the face and eyes 'cause that is where the moisture it -- like ticks going for a dog's eyelids in TN.

For Fall, Mom is using her free Southwest Airline ticket to go with friends to New Hampshire/Vermont to see the Fall color change of the trees. Hurts doesn't it. I guess I am not one of her friends. Sniff....

Put a l'il sugar on your lips and they become a tasty snack!

lol. Maybe you should take up the veil, T.

Besides, if a human-sized fly swatter was smacking flies on your face, you wouldn't be too pretty after a while.

Oh so true is that! Would not look too nice after a self-inflicted face beating to kill some pesky fly. I was tempted once to buy Muslim garb to surprise Dan at the airport, but opted not. Not my style. :)
