I knew my days were numbered, but I was hoping for more time. With all the rain we’ve had over the last few months it’s no wonder they’re out now in droves. I’m talking about my #1 enemy: the mosquito. No matter how many citronella candles I burn or how well the netting is closed on our gazebo, the little shits will find me. I can barely water my plants in the morning without a bite or two. What’s really bad is that I never feel the bites when they happen so I have no idea how badly I’m being attacked until 24-36 hours later when the welts appear. This morning, while I was enjoying my coffee, I absently scratched my ankle and realized I’d just activated my first mosquito bite. Damn! Looks like it’s going to be a long summer. Could someone please pass me the Deep Woods Off?
