April 7

I sat outside , eating my dinner  sandwich, at my pet sitting house and I had a few pesky flies bothering me. Isn't it too early for flies ? Back at our Michigan cottage, August was a bad time for flies. We got those big horse flies that made you jump off of our raft and into the lake.  Because I got tired of hearing our screen door slam, we just propped it open and let kids, flies and dogs just come and go. In the evening, I offered a penny a dead fly.. But  this is April. Maybe because we are  in the deep south, flies come early. Or maybe it is that every thing matures early because we are in the south. They say that about the women in the south. I think that I read that some where.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.
