Seriously....I hope your son doesn't read here, Addie. Sometimes it's good to sit back and re-read posts before hitting submit....

We're headed to a concert that features a harmonica-playing guy with a salsa band. Huh?? DH really was interested, and was able to score free tickets from work.

Poo is in his mid 40's now. And he remembers the incident very well. So I am not revealing something he already doesn't know. In fact he will often use the story to warn others who think ticks are not a problem. They can be deadly if you don't know what you are dealing with.

My son doesn't even know this forum exists. And I hope that the folks here will learn that it is less painful just to keep pouring alcohol over it. And not have to through the painful way Dawg did.

Not the point at all

Ticks can get anywhere. I found one a few years ago ... woooo ... not a fun place.

I give my cats and dog tick and flea pills. I tell them, "I do this because I love you, ******!"

Well, y'all get the idea.

Getting ready to go with our youngest son to spend the day at a local animal shelter fund raiser that their having today. Then were going out to lunch.
He volunteers a few days a week.

Not only do I get to play with puppies all day. The best part of all. I'll be buying quite a few spring flower baskets and such for my walkway garden.
It's all for a good cause. I'll do my best NOT to bring home a puppy. No promises though.

It's springtime. Almost summer. A time for swimmin' and sinnin' I remember those days.

Crime DOES pay!

The shelter was packed. They had only 5 little cuties left to play with.
All were just waiting to see the Vet, get the shots, fixed and the new owners to pick them up. That was a lot of fun.

After I played with them I went to buy some flowers. Came home with the trunk and backseat filled.

I had picked out some beautiful Snapdragons, asked my son to carry them for me. Things weren't marked too clearly of where to pay for them. He had assumed that I did and walked right out of the place. It wasn't until I was ready to pay for the others that we realized our mistake. Told the cashier of our sins.
They laughed and asked how many I picked? Just 4. After the final tally. He not only gave us a discount on the amount I had bought. But on top of that another discount and a thank you for your honesty.

So Clyde and I will be planting as soon as I get back.
