A "TICK"LISH TALE


Apparently there is a big problem with ticks these days.

I have received several emails reminding me of the dangers associated with them.

After receiving this last one, I decided to let you all know.

Consider yourself warned!

If someone comes to your front door saying they are checking for ticks due to the warm weather and asks you to take all your clothes off and turn around with your arms up...
DO NOT DO IT!!

THIS IS A SCAM!!

They only want to see you "nekkid".

I just wish I knew this yesterday.

I feel so stupid.

O.K. you had me going for a minute because we found a tick on my hubby the other day. (Maybe I'd better put some of our dog's Frontline on him.)

Thanks for the warning....I'll try to remember!

By the way, I love your urinal story..... and it looks good by your front door.

and....we live in southern CA near Riverside. We are about an hour from the beach, the mountains and less than that from Disneyland and Knotts. Why don't you come for a visit? We've got plenty of room and our pool is lonesome.

Wendi said...

Because I so rarely see someone with the samw spelling of my name, I just had to pop by for a visit. :) I saw your comment on Jamie's blog.
You are so super funny! I needed a good laugh today, so thank you. :) You have a great blog.

I'm considering myself warned. Haha!

And as for my "prize". There's a link on the post back to the original post. It's to lose 10 lbs in 10 weeks and get a new Coach bag. I have no idea where people are coming up with Vail and Hawaii. That was NEVER the deal. I'm not THAT spoiled :)
