6 hour Sunday...

Took the "day of rest" off and put in 6 hours of spraying.  Just past the 3/4 mark on the sky steel.  Worked it into two shifts today - early cool morning and still kind of warm late afternoon.  Long break and a nap in between.  One of my Robber Fly buddies (nice beard) came by to snack on the front porch fare.  I need to coax one of these guys inside to dine on the 5 flies that refuse to leave my living space.  91,99,67,0,B

Wow! The pic of the robber fly is wicked!
Very Cool!
Good paint job too.

You need one of those flying pest strips that you unravel out of a tiny canister and pin on the ceiling! It ends up a couple feet long and anything that lands on it is stuck! Be careful because that strip is so sticky that you need gasoline to get that guck off your fingers! Any hardware store should have them!

Impressed with the picture of the robber fly. Caught him in the act. Or is it a she?

Paint job is looking good.

John,

Last night we watched one of the films you recommended, "City of Lost Children," and now wish I'd taken your "Polyester" suggestion.

I'd like to return the favor with a recommendation of my own, but you'll have to go to my blog at http://wandervogeldiary.wordpress.com/ to see it.

The City of Lost Children
Author: presence from Los Angeles

The City of Lost Children is my all time favorite movie. It is unlike anything I've ever seen or experienced before. It's a movie that I hold dear to my heart and will never forget. I have to be honest though, the first time I saw this movie, I really didn't like it at all. The story was too confusing, and the characters were extremely weird and twisted. After watching it a second and third time, however, I understood what was going on more, and could spend more time looking at the visuals rather than the subtitles. Speaking of visuals, this movie has it in spades. The environment that Jean-Pierre Jeunet created is out of this world. The city is very dark and the water looks as if there are secrets hidden within. The mood the soundtrack sets is perfect for the scenery and the superb acting by everybody (including the kids) just adds to the greatness of this flick. I highly recommend this movie, it's one of those movies that you will never forget watching, and the images will stay in your head for a very long time. A beautiful, beautiful, movie. 10/10

Looks a bit menacing.

I bet the insects there, in comparison to the ones here, back east, are as big as Benita.

John,

I am recommending he movie the "crazies" to you. I took my son and his friends to see this and believe me, the title is appropriate. Enjoy!

P.S.
Your loaf of bread reminds me of yet another great movie, "The Blob". A story about what appears to be a drop of Jelly that grows and grows and eats people. Great movie!
