Saturday encore ~ Alan's life of crime

It seems very odd to not be whining about lost, ripped or otherwise missing fly masks this year.
The roll-on fly repellent is still doing the trick to keep the pesky bugs away from the eyes of George, 
Alan, and Lucy. Hank? Not so much. He doesn't have much hair around his eyes for the repellent to stick to 
so he's wearing a fly mask now, but no one would dare rip it off his face. Anyway, this post is from June 2013. 


Me: Lucy, you seem to be having a wardrobe malfunction.

Lucy: Alan did it.
Me: That goes without saying.

Me: What was the last thing I said to you this morning, George?
George: Don't come home without your fly mask.

Me: You didn't listen to me, did you?
George: Oh, I listened alright. I listened as Mr. Velcro Ripper stole it right off my face.

Me: That's exactly where you belong, Alan – behind bars.


  1. I tried the roll on fly spray....the applicator doesn't seem to hold enough liquid to get adequate coverage....a design flaw, I think. I have had no luck with it. We are all in fly masks.

  2. I love how every morning your posts make me chuckle!

  3. Ha haa...Alan! So innocent :-)

  4. Maybe you could glue fake eyebrows on Hank and then use the roller. :)

  5. Have you ever tried Avon Skin-so-Soft to repel flies. When I had a horse I put in a spray bottle and sprayed around her face and legs. It worked like a charm.
