Hardly anybody around the farm had a good word to say for a fly. (from Charlotte’s Web by EB White)
It’s that time of year again when there’s enough moisture and enough heat to bring the flying insects out en masse. As much as they irritate me, I’m glad to be able to go inside, but my poor horses just have to stand outside and deal with the flies and gnats that are simply swarming at times. And as much as I want to believe that even flies are part of God’s creation, I can’t think of a good word to say for them. Wishing you a fly-free Memorial Day tomorrow!
