Thank you for including it.

I like that guy Gemli, whoever he is, from Boston. He posts some wicked good stuff.

But you gotta look a Maureen Dowd’s column in the NYT today! She writes a poem about a snake. And then see the comments to her article.

Good, Kate! And Happy Birthday soon!

I misquoted:

“…one’s a Mormon, while the other’s a MORON!”

“One’s a Mormon, the other is a Mormon. Mere coincidence? I think not.”
Hilarious is right!

Yes, I remember they had abated by the time July came.

That’s good Mom is around you. She’s at your concerts too.

“though they have yet to make a sight.”

Or, perhaps:

“sucking my blood with all their might.”

Anyway. It’s July 8, 2017, and the ticks have abated again for now. Though, they will come around again in the fall for a bit. Or, a bite, I should say.

Mom is still around. She is hovering around me all the time.

I noticed the nice poem you wrote on this thread! I should have mentioned it back in 2005. Here it is copied:

And so, Tick Tawk begins
‘Fore even the first bite
Can feel them on my skin
though have yet to make a sight.

Very good, Kate. And yer mommy was around back then too. Ah, memories!

P.S. I’ve picked quite a few ticks off me so far this season! And, the black flies are, as usual, unbearable. Those bug suits you left behind, Dad, though, have made working out in the spring gardens much more tolerable. 😀

They may be forced to do this once they begin to see that their lives are no better than before. But it’s very emotional and it may take a long time for them to change.
