    A new scam is happening daily, be aware and ready:

    If someone comes to your front door saying they are conducting a survey on deer ticks and asks you to take your clothes off and dance around with your arms up, DO NOT DO IT!!

    IT IS A SCAM; they only want to see you naked.

    I wish I'd gotten this yesterday. I feel so stupid now.

          It's not a scam. I really am interested in deer ticks, a little bit...

            What if you really do have deer ticks?


            • #7
              If you really do have deer ticks you should check for the start of antlers. (I thought everybody knew that.)

              By the way, last week a woman came to my door conducting just such a survey. Believe it or not – she gave me five dollars just to put my cloths back on. I guess I’ve heard too many ticks - and too many tocks - since I was born. She had me all worked up – but I guess I’ll just have to keep relying on my fading memory.

              Here ticky, ticky, tick.

                I really thought the "antlers" were an improvement over some of the other things that are happenning to my body. It's another spot to accessorize!

                    Hey Mike,

                    Unfortunately, I can't come this year. I will be in Mexico at that time. My daughter is graduating from high school this year, and we are taking her to Mexico to celebrate.

                    I really wanted to try to come, too.

                    Maybe next year. You guys have fun, though.
