Woody’s Woodlot: In the Skeeters
Woody had an interesting last week as he explored the wilds along the Mighty Muddy.
One thing he found is that if you want to explore on foot in and around the forest lands in this area, you better have taken the proper precautions for repelling mosquitoes or you may just find yourself being toted off and missing the natural wonders we have in this fertile land. Yesterday I heard one of them say to another that had found the millimeter of skin I hadn’t covered with super extreme skeeter dope, “You want to eat him here or take him home?” Those critters across the lake laugh at anything that isn’t coating your body! If you think for a minute you can carry some gadget on your side and keep them off in those woods, go ahead...I’ll take you to the hospital when you come down with malaria or West Nile.
