The Deer Flies were out and bothersome today. We told our visitors that all scientific reports suggest that Deer Flies prefer the color blue for some reason. So we put cups covered in a sticky substance 1 red, 1 blue, on top of two of our friends and took a walk. Boy the stories they'll have when they get home! As usual, blue was the clear winner and no humans were hurt in the course of this experiment. On a related note, Jane (red hat) proved to be a world class mosquito magnet.
