When we were in Silverton we were thinking of having a sit down lunch. Of course, that was before we realized that each of the cars in town must have contained about 20 people and that having a peaceful lunch was a vain hope.
As the Man and I walked into the garden of one cafe we saw this blackboard sign which bought us both to a standstill.
THE FLIES ARE BAD SO PLEASE ENTER AS QUICKLY AS YOU CAN THANK YOU.
The first thing the Man did was laugh and say “Bloody hell, the flies must get bad if they want you to shut the gate to the backyard that fast”.
Yes, we knew that it referred to the adjacent door, leading inside, but the position of the sign was just too good to ignore!
