Why did I ever complain about chiggers

Until the last couple of years, I hated mosquitos the most…I rooted for bats because I knew they were eating the enemy.  2nd in line was chiggers…even though many internet experts and my daughter have told me that finger nail polish doesn’t work to stop the itch, I say pashaw!  The theory behind applying fingernail polish may be flawed, it does stop the itch.  But now I live in the KC area where infestation of oak mites is the worst it has been in 10 years.  I’d never even HEARD of oak mites!!  I’m one of those people who has obviously been bitten and chewed on by the above mentioned pests.  I sport huge red swollen spots and the itch is incredible!

He and I walked trails today at the Burr Oak conservation area…….Oak Mites!

As a side note….I learned of health problems of 3 very good friends today.  I won’t out two of them on social media because they haven’t.  But the one I will mention is Rod.  If you follow me on FB, you probably know who Rod is…..and if you know who Rod is, it might be news how dear our friendship is judging from our banter.  If you have a moment, please throw up some good vibes to the universe for him.  He’s in the hospital where he is being poked and prodded to find out what is wrong with him.  I know he’s nervous about it.

Rod and I about 16 years ago

Until next time….
