Full circle

This morning I looked down and saw a tick meandering across the jeans Forest left lying on the bathroom floor.  And so, we are back where we started.  I put the tick in the toilet and the jeans in the hamper.  Then, a few moments later, I felt a tickle on the bottom of my foot.  I pulled off my sock and found exactly what I expected to, nothing.  The creepy-crawlies of tick season feel more real than the actual ticks.


  1. Good news is that this time of year they are only creepy! They aren't carrying Lyme yet. Your chickens will be well fed as this year they are saying will be a bumper crop of ticks!

  2. "bumper crop of ticks." A phrase i hope does not haunt me in my dreams...
