When I was a kid, our elderly neighbors had a bug zapper. I kinda thought it was a cool, old person’s tool.

A year or so ago, we started having a really bad mosquito problem. It was so bad we couldn’t sit on the patio, something I love to do above all else when it’s nice outside.

So we bought a bug zapper. And it made me so happy to hear the bugs merrily toasting. We even considered it important enough to bring on our new RV experience.

There are no mosquitoes here but the flies are awful. I detest flies.

While our immediate outside RV vicinity has less flies in it than inside of most restaurants in Amarillo, we were still having a problem with flies getting into the RV.

So I got one of these:


In fact, I may be having way more fun with it than a normal, stable individual would have. It is like a game to me. You definitely have to hunt the fly. Then you have to catch it with the zapper. The resultant zaps and sparks just crack me up. ย The bigger the fly, the bigger the sparks. ๐Ÿ˜‰

This is truly the best $5 piece of entertainment I have ever purchased. LOL! I guess my love of the bug zappers means I’m officially old. ๐Ÿ˜‰
