I got there around 0950 to set up. My first decision was where to sit for 5 or so hours. It had to have a good seat with a back, ample light, and a table that would not wobble.
As this is an outside covered patio with patio furniture, this was a rather daunting task. I opted for a spot along the wall to charge my phone as we would have 'soccer' matches on during the day.
The next major decision was to do the buffet or order off the menu. I went for the buffet.
Round one of the buffet was biscuits and gravy with a side of bacon.
Once I had that in my system the flies were plausible.
