Greetings once again from the sticky Adirondacks, the black flies have left, but the regular old house flies have all take up residence in our house…wherever my bug-phobic Briar is.

MOM! MO-OOOOOM! MOM, COME QUICK! QUICK I SAID.
Pad. Click. Pad. Click.
OH MY GOSH, OH. MY. GOODNESS! OHMYGOSH,
Pad. Click. Pad. Click.
HURRY. QUICK! MOM!”
Pad, click, click, pad.

What is it?

A FLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLY.

Pad.Pad.Pad.Clomp.
A FLY.
Pad. Click. Click. Click. Smack.
A FLY.

Pad. Slide. Slide. Grunt. Pad.
OH MY GOSH A FLY!

Each of these exchanges is of course peppered with the unbelievably pathetic sounds of Avery making her valiant, but gimpy way along on her pudgy foot and purple cast. So far I’ve exterminated 4 of the little buggers with a dish towel, one particularly wily fly continues to elude me and panic Briar.

Luckily, amidst all this stuffy, sticky, stinky heat there is a bit of undeniable cool, seriously. I’m a channel editor over at Blog Nosh – my category is “Family.”** What is Blog Nosh you ask? Well, consider it a brightly colored, methodically categorized place where you can go to get turned on to great bloggers, people you maybe haven’t found yet. Looking for great writing, but daunted by the vastness of the blogosphere? Have no fear, Blog Nosh is here…go on, try a nibble. Just click that purty lil button down below!

I’ve got a fly I have to slay…Briar tells me, “Mom, the fly, he is right there. Why can’t you get him?”

Sigh.

*Sincere apologies for the lame title.
