Damn the Mosquitoes

It’s rained for 5 days in a row and the standing water all over the place has given rise to a horde of blood sucking creeps large enough to get Rudy Giuliani elected. Should you be caught outside after dusk around here, you’d better have some DEET crammed up your nostrils or those little suckers will fly right up there and then for the rest of the week you’ll be trying to convince people you’re really scratching a mosquito bite and not digging for boogers. Ella is the most recent casualty with no less than 15 bites on her mere 19-inch leg. She has Calamine lotion spots in place of her more recent and more colorful rainbow pox, I have to say I prefer the previous any time – poor kid.

texas is claiming rain all next week, and i'm not looking forward to it. i also heard murmurings of a hurricane a-coming. time to stock up on wine and dog treats!
