So if I owned a four-wheeler what color would it be? Yes, maybe a wild pink! Especially if it kept the bugs away and let me always be the driver. Va-Room!!!

By the way, here's some useful information if you find yourself in woods. My mother-in-law forwarded it to me this morning and I thought I'd share. I've never had to deal with ticks until now. So far they have just been on our dog but I know it's bound to happen one of us someday soon. EEk!!!!

Spring is here and the ticks will soon be showing in heads. Here is a good way to get them off you, your children, or your pets. Give it a try. Please forward to anyone with children... or hunters or dogs, or anyone who even steps outside in summer!!  A School Nurse has written the info below -- good enough to share -- And it really works!!I had a pediatrician tell me what she believes is the best way to remove a tick. This is great, because it works in those places where it's sometimes difficult to get to with tweezers: between toes, in the middle of a head full of dark hair, etc. Apply a glob of liquid soap to a cotton ball. Cover the tick with the soap-soaked cotton ball and swab it for a few seconds (15-20), the tick will come out on its own and be stuck to the cotton ball when you lift it away. This technique has worked every time I've used it (and that was frequently), and it's much less traumatic for the patient and easier for me. Unless someone is allergic to soap, I can't see that this would be damaging in any way. I even had my doctor's wife call me for advice because she had one stuck to her back and she couldn't reach it with tweezers. She used this method and immediately called me back to say, "It worked!"
Everyone needs this helpful info!

Wow! This card is so cool! I love the fun layout and buttons!
Thank you for sharing gthe information about ticks.
Sergei had a tick in his ear last year. I was so scared, I used tweezers, but I think that it was just a luck to take it this way. Now I know this method! Thank you Nancy!

Thanks for the tick tip! I already have Lymes disease, so it's really important to remove them asap and get treated aggressively if you develop symptoms. Love the card!
