    Horrible pun … (ie good one) but … not to be pedantic … they are too high for a shin-dig.

    What you meant to say is today’s comic ticked you off, no?

    This has the makings of a real knee slapper.

    re: margaritem

    AMEN!

    I’ve had lymes twice and babeosis once. (When with the USFS in 1988, in college in 1998, and in 2002 with NMFS)
    .
    Ticks essentially exist to spread disease. Lizards will sometimes eat them, but as a food source, they are inconsequential. Wonder if we could engineer a virus that only affects ticks? Wouldn’t get them all, but it might thin them out considerably.

    Bruno — that’s the shin they’re digging… it’s just a bit plump.


    Hope they don’t kill the fatted calf.

    @SusanSunshine

    Sorry, I thought the shin was the side of the foot!
    Maybe I should Google before I nitpick!

    You know you’ve spent time in northern Calfornia when you realize that you automatically look down every time a shrub brushes your pants. (And wear light colored pants so the little armies show up and can be removed before they get ideas. Wasn’t uncommon to find three or four ticks just from brushing a grass blade. The shorts fad had some real consequences with tourists not realizing they needed pants in the forest.)

    That one on the bottom looks afraid to climb any higher. Must be a nervous tick.
