Tick Season

We bought some pine straw and, just from moving it from the truck to the yard, both of us got a tick bite. So, although we had only spread some of it, we called our pest people and had them come out to do a tick spray just in case there were more.

Today M decided to spread the rest. She prepared by covering up – on this 90 plus degree day.

Look closely at the ankles below – we’ll need new packing tape.

This Wondercide spray has worked beautifully for mosquitos and we’re hoping for ticks, as well.

After spreading the rest of the straw we found no ticks on M. Hooray!

We’ll still have our pest people do one more spray because “we don’t do ticks”!


Don’t Say You Love this President and America

John Pavlovitz is almost inside my head. His words are what I want to say but can’t articulate as well as he.

Here is an excerpt from Don’t Say You Love This President and America. One of Those Things Isn’t True.

When a sitting President stands alongside a murderous dictator and declares to trust that man more than American Intelligence, more than our public servants across the aisle, more than our nation’s Press—he’s stepped out into the stark light of day and revealed himself.

When he is more willing to meet with one of our greatest adversaries; a man guilty of poisonings and murders for hire and war crimes—than with American troops on the ground or Democrats in the House or shooting victims here at home—he’s declared who he is.

And when you refuse to name it all as treasonous, when you choose to remain silent, when you pretend you don’t see it—you declare who you are.

We see it. The world sees it.

The entire article is worth your time. Read it.
