Shoo Fly

San Geraldo made a new friend while I was away. Her name is Patricia (pronounced Pah-TREE-thee-ah in these parts) and she was introduced by our neighbors Ray and Jean one morning in the cafe downstairs.

EVEN THE BOOK SHE’S READING COLOR-COORDINATES.

Patricia is not shy by any stretch of the imagination — check out the printing on her tote bag in the picture above. She told San Geraldo she notices him regularly at the cafe and wonders why he sits with a dish towel on his head. (And here I thought it was because of his good looks.) San Geraldo explained that he sometimes wears a dish towel to protect his head from the sun, but mostly he wears the dish towel to keep away those annoying flies.

This morning, Patricia dropped by the cafe with a gift for San Geraldo — an electrified tennis racket to zap flies and mosquitos. Apparently, dish towels — like square-check fabrics and skyscraper heels — are so last year.

ANXIOUS TO START ZAPPING.
MAYBE THE LAST FLY (FAR LEFT) DUDO WILL SEE.  WHEN THAT ELECTRIFIED
ZAPPER IS UNLEASHED, BOTH CATS WILL PROBABLY GO INTO HIDING
