Flies, Kids, and Fathers Day.

As I posted earlier, I had to work open to close on Mother’s Day due to a lot of unavailability by fellow coworkers.  So I decided that Father’s Day would be different.  I managed to get the day off.  Kirk (my husband) had to work that day but when he got home he had lunch and then I let him take a long nap.  When he got up I gave him my gift, which was a grandpa-looking sun hat to shade himself when he mows the lawn.  (Yes folks, he asked for that.)  And the kids gave him their gift.  I helped them to stamp their handprints on a t-shirt for him.  On the back it says Father’s Day 2010.  He loved it.  We grilled out with the next door neighbors and that attracted a couple of things.  Kids and flies.  A couple of the neighborhood kids came over and hung around for dinner.  So we ended up having a kiddie table and adult standing room only.  But the food attracted something else…  FLIES!  And lots of them!  We had the worst time trying to clean up after all that nonsense.  Every time the door to the house opened more flies would buzz in.  Father’s Day was 3 days ago and we kill about 5 – 7 flies per day.  We still have more than 5 in here right now.  I’m seriously debating the worth of our compost bin at this point due to the closeness at which we must keep it to the house.

He didn’t want to show his face on my blog.  He’s a bit shy.  But you can see part of his epic red beard.  : )

    Sounds like fun times. Happy belated father’s day to your husband, and we are battling flies here at the beach–the ick biting ones at that.
