A Penny A Fly
I had forgotten that in additon to that cigarette which would be in Poppy's hand while he was in the rocker on the front porch, he would have a fly swat in his hand or nearby. Dave reminded me of this tonight when he came to Dad's. He said Poppy used to tell them he would give them a penny per fly they killed. I don't remember this offer -- must have been a guy thing. Dave said he never remembered being paid.
