Pet Horse Fly!

9 Jul

I’ll bet you saw the title of this post and thought what in the world is he talking about. Well, I am talking about this.


I caught this big black horsefly buzzing around in my truck. It reminded me when we were kids, we would catch a horsefly and tie a thread  around it’s neck, ( loosely so as not to kill it ) and walk around with that horsefly buzzing around like a pet on a 3 foot leash. Don’t laugh! When I was a kid we didn’t have video games and all these battery operated toys kids have now-a-days, We had to make our own fun a lot of times. We could imagine a whole world of dragons and castles, or Cowboys and Indians, or GIs and Nazis with just sticks and empty cardboard boxes. We had to use our imagination to keep us occupied all day long. We went out after lunch and didn’t come in till supper time. Times were a lot different back then.

    we are lucky to have such memories from our childhoods….these are the memories that make getting old and decrepid tolerable.
