Neosporin, Stat!

See those plants in the background of the picture below? Those are bromeliads. Here's a closeup. They have lovely flowers, but they're also natural traps for rainwater, and we had gallons yesterday.

That means mosquitos, and boy am I chewed. We're looking at having deck repairs done, and that involves showing contractors around. I never remember to use Off or an equivalent before I do that, and I always pay a price. Why do mosquitos love ankle-flesh so much?

They love ankles because the blood supply is so close to the skin. They also like alot of estrogen....
My husband is constantly being chewed up by these little bastands. He is heavy and the estrogen hides inside the fat. A great excuse to lose weight....
