Wake up call!

A rude awakening at 5.30 this morning when I found a tick embedded in my groin! Managed to pull it out with my tweezers, popped it into a small container – here is what it looked like after 2 hours in the freezer.

Nasty blood sucking bugger.
 What I want to know is - how did it get there, how long had it been in my bed & are there any more?  Now I'm feeling every little tickle or itch.
On a brighter note this was the sunset last evening.

Yikes! Ticks are one of those insects that I am nervous about. We always wear hats in the forest and pull up the socks walking through long grass. Ticks here can carry Lyme disease from the deer.

I can imagine that you would wonder about every tickle!

I'm getting itchy just looking at that picture!
