Now It's War

 Pulled off my shin Thursday:



And from behind my knee on Friday:


Aaaand pulled a Lone Star tick off pup last night even though he's treated.

Found permithren and a spray with much higher Deet concentration at Tractor Supply.  And every sock, every pair of pants, every shirt that I wear when hiking or working in the yard is getting soaked with the permithren.

I've had Lyme Disease twice and some other tick born disease that required antibiotics before Lyme Disease popped up.  I'm done with these miserable bugs.

And then there was last night's weirdness.  Was sitting on the deck watching the fireflies come out and a bird flew over me.  And pooped on my head.  As I was in the "What the..." stage a tree simply fell down across my back yard.  Just...fell.  I'm not sure why but right now I seem to be at war with nature.

Gaaaahhhh!

Cover myself in Off.  Soak my clothes and shoes in it.  Style my hair with it. And just yanked a tick off my throat.  The third one that's gotten attached this season. My dog gets treated with a cheap repellant each month.  I don't find ticks or fleas on him.  I want the same stuff for me.

I'm Shocked! Shocked!

 Well, actually, I'm not.  

According to The Daily Mail:

Chinese military scientist 'filed a patent for a COVID-19 vaccine BEFORE the virus was declared a global pandemic and worked closely with 'bat woman' at Wuhan institute'

Hm.  Almost as if they knew the virus was going to "get out" and were working on a vaccine concurrently with the gain of function work they were doing on it.  Which suggests, just possibly, that it was deliberately released.  

"But but but GASP!  They wouldn't do that to their own people!"  Mao killed at least 45 million of his own people without batting an eye.  They are enslaving and killing their own people NOW.  The Chinese regime wouldn't flinch at killing a few million more if it gained them the global position they have been working towards more quickly.

And, if it WAS released deliberately, it would be an act of war, not just against the US but against the entire world.  If it wasn't for the fact that millions of Chinese are stuck in a brutal regime that they don't want, this would be a completely justifiable reason to turn several areas of China into complete desolation.  

The other thing I'm not shocked about is the fact that I have to go to news sources outside of the US to find news that should be reported INSIDE the US.  I wish I was, though.  Follow the link to read the article in a British, not American, newspaper.

Well. That Was Unexpected.

 

Left the porch light on for a little bit.  Never thought about the cicadas being drawn to the light.

It's Not About A Long Weekend

 



To my ancestors who only made it home in a box now buried in our family graveyard:  Thank you, Grandpa.
