    he is a beauty of a FLY isn't he !?
    he lives outside, my wife wouldn't let him come inside.
    he spent the night on the gouldiana blossom, then when the sun warmed his cockles, he up and left looking for a family that would let him inside the house.
    bye frank

    He's a fly, Tracey. You treat them like sushi, pop em in raw.

    Of course, it seems obvious now. Has anyone ever told you you're a culinary jeeniyus?

    No, no, no...you pull the wings and legs off flies and use them as you would raisins. :rolleyes:

    No wonder Frank left. :D

    update: Frank came by yesterday to say he found a nice family down the street that has a dead mouse behind the sofa so all 100 of his kids are getting fat and squirmy.
    i love a happy ending :)

    MJ what is your culinary suggestion for a mouse stuck on a sticky trap ??

    Dear Frank!
    Is it you .... what I have been looking for you!
    How could you leave me for a younger woman .... when I sit here with your 273 pieces of children, how shall we do?
    Your Wilma!

    Yes, Brant, Frank is a real beauty of a fly. A real specimen. Have you heard from him lately? I know you miss him. Sorry he couldn't come in. A little piece of raw hamburger in the corner would have kept him occupied and happy for a long time.

    Ann, he stopped by yesterday to say "Hi" and in swooped a Black Phoebe and had Frank for lunch.



    The black phoebe is a solitary flycatcher that feeds almost entirely on flying insects. I am just now able to talk about it..:cry:
