Lovely to see this report.

I went to Dunback and brought home a couple of ticks, and one decided to
investigate and found it this morning lodged in my upper back.

Please be extra mindful while doing complete tick checks. Once getting
home, find a tick-check point and go through all the clothing you had on,
including the shoes, and your car seat.

I was able to get my dose of Doxycycline Hyclate this morning at the
walk-in clinic at Mt. Auburn Hospital. My, how I hate that medication.

Be careful!!
