Not your typical 'fly on the wall.'

Oh what he seemed to Hilda. He WAS of the Order Diptera.

"But Dippy, what large teeth you ha... !"

I totally agree. 139 characters.
 
clever take on the picture!
 
Jim is this a love story among flies? LOL-great take this week!
 
I'd like to see a close-up of that fly's big teeth. Love his name. Thanks for the laugh, Jim!
 
Was Hilda blinded by love??? LOL
 
The curse of the vampire fly?? *shudders*
 
Love the nickname, Dippy. I've had a few bosses like that. LOL
 
As part of our 4th of July tradition, we will be headed to the local Dairy Queen this afternoon. I will have a chocolate-dipped cone and think of you!

Happy Fire Cracker Day!
SFG~~~~~*
 
hmmm ... Aranea in Diptera's clothing perhaps?

Great job!

:Dom
 
FYI, an aranea is an intelligent, shapechanging spider with sorcerous powers. In its
natural form, an aranea resembles a big spider, with a humpbacked body.

Thank you, Domminic, I appreciate knowing about this.
Others: Google it for more info. :)
 
Aranea, n. A genus of orb-weaving spiders including common garden spiders and barn spiders.
 
I can never figure out how to read your stories on here Jim. Do you have to belong to this group in order to read the stories??

I liked your critter photos and your reunion photo. I'm so glad you are not one of the deceased!!

I hope Cliff didn't get flooded out. That would be bad!
 
Jim, How come I didn't know you were in the same class with my sister Ruth? I didn't know until I saw her in the alumni pic below.
It was good to see you then and thanks for the call. The river has given us a good scare but seems to have crested but they expect the crest to remain for about two more months. A gross miscalculation by the Corp of Engineers. They say they went by the book but it's evident that the book was wrong. VERY wrong.

btw, I remember all of your uncles.
 
haha- i wonder what order hilda was!
