Fly Catching – Conversations with Stella


I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Shoo! Get away!

Me:  I beg your pardon?

Stella:  Granted. Now why have you let so many flies settle here, Lady Human?

Me:  What makes you think I had anything to do with this?

Stella:  Humans control everything. Flies are part of that everything.

Me:  The chickens would be good at this. They’ll jump on any fly in a wink, but they can’t jump this high.

Stella:  Wings! They have wings!

Me:  You haven’t paid much attention to the chickens, have you? They can hop and jump, but they don’t fly.

Stella:  Not fair! Flies fly and chickens can’t?

Me:  That’s the way of it. We’ll just have to handle the fly crowd ourselves.

Stella:  We? What do I look like? A flying chicken?
