Lady of the Flies

I haven’t posted anything in awhile, but that’s not to say nothing has happened recently.  There was the incident of a robbery in my neighborhood a week ago, and I had the privilege of entering my building right as the preteen perpetrator ran past me with a pillowcase full o’ loot.  He was followed by a cop (although, not too closely due to middle age weight gain), who was running as fast as he could.

There was also the bank robbery down the street from my mom’s house.  You can read the latest about that here.  (Apparently the robbery in my neighborhood didn’t make the news.)

But what has seriously made me nervous has been all the flies that make their way into my apartment, and then immediately turn around and buzz around the windows trying to get out.  Typically, I kill a couple a day, but when I came home this afternoon, there were a record number of them swarming around.  Happy Halloween, indeed!  Here’s a picture of a portion of the flies I killed, mostly from my bedroom:

I believe I shall be investing in this retro-looking fly catcher, once they have them in stock again.  And hey, it could be worse!  At least I’m not this guy:
