Blackfly Report

Another beautiful hot weekend at the cottage!  And for all of you who are upset about Global Gorming, and the fact that the Sahara was once a green paradise, and that all these Canadians are whooping it up, I have but one word for you - Blackflies!

Hot and blackflies do not go together.  You wear this big net thingies, and you start to sweat, and it gets into your eyes, and you take off the net, and WHAP!  You are breathing blackflies!

As well, the water is freezing.  I put my feet in for a whole few seconds, and I still feel it.  :)

Years ago, while on bivouac in the White Mnts of New Hampshire, I had my first experience with those nasty, evil, critters. They were small enough that some could fit through the mosquito netting on the tents. One one occasion, there were several perched on the top of a bottle of Cutters insect repellent... and, it appeared to all present, that they were eating it!

Horrible Situation: Blackfly net, and really wanting a beer!

It ain't springtime if you don't inhale a few of the buggers, and swab a few more out the ears after a day in the garden.
