Did you know that in place of flyspray you can spray a blowfly with Spray Starch?
This is so it can't fly around and annoy you.
The idea being that its wings stiffen up and it can only lie around dying of starvation.
You also don't have Old Timer's or dementia if you can still read.
So if you catch your Mother writing herself little notes like.....the black square thing is a video and the round flat thing is a DVD......then she's only a little nutty because her memory is shot.
She is living proof that a person can survive on apricot jam and toast.
Such are the things my Mother taught me and that's just today.
