Turkey season may still be 2 1/2 weeks away, but the dreaded tick season is underway. Was prowling around on our place yesterday, and found one of the critters imbeded on my beltline this evening. A good early lesson, since I wont go afield from now on this "warm" season without taking the necessary preparations to keep the beasties at bay.

Not my circus, not my monkeys.
