Also forgot to mention -- for pat also, since she likes them so much!
Skeeters!!!! Report on Thursday (locally) -- increase in the skeeter population by 3 times in the last week. They are doing arial spraying of basically our whole county as of now to try to control the skeeter population.
Problem is, there is still water standing in places that I have never seen in ten years.... so skeeters are now also an issue here.
