Guys I was out yesterday morning from 3.30 am & blanked & am afraid, then went over to set up one of my lads for the local farmers market for the day.
Yesterday evening I just sat down with the kids to watch TV with a nice glass of vino only to find a pretty medium sized tick on the back of my elbow.
After getting the wife all fired up with the little lasso she managed to get the bugger off but then I noticed that its snout was still firmly embeded in my arm & after having nightmares with Basil's & Mats tick posts this week - we then spent a further half an hour with sharp needle point doing an opperation on my arm to remove it!
It looks a real bloody mess now but the bite is at the moment showing no sign of a bulls eye or infection, so I am just keeping it washed with an alchol gel & fingures crossed it will be OK.
After being bitten loads of times I have never had that trouble with one before & I know its very improtant to ensure that it is all removed.
At least it was'nt me nuts this time!
