Unwelcome Visitors

The dreaded deer ticks are out.  I found my first bloodsucker tonight . . . crawling behind my ear.  The Lord must have been with me to find it, much less get it off, as they are so incredibly tiny.  This close encounter frightened me as I’ve never had one in my head before.  My worst fear is one getting into my dark hair filled head.  Hello Lyme Disease. 

Thanks to my beloved birdies, and turkeys, dog ticks are nearly a thing of the past around Bon Bon Pond.  Incredibly, this new deadly disease-carrier has made me yearn for the good old days of their larger relatively harmless cousins. 

Tomorrow, the Permethrin comes out.
