No, not planning soon, but Jim just got a promotion and there is rumor that eventually he may have to relocate.....it will be a while though, not any time soon.

Are there any warnings about the deer having ticks this summer? We're moving to NC next week and my son is recovering from Lyme disease so I'm alittle neurotic.

deer have ticks every summer. As do dogs, cats, raccoons, opossum, vermin and the like.

The best way to protect yourself from tick-borne illnesses is to check yourself (and your son) thoroughly on a regular basis and remove them quickly. It is unlikely for ticks to spread disease if they are removed properly and before they become engorged.

Deer ticks (the small ones) like to line up around the waistband (from my experience). I used to cruise timber in college and every day I would remove from 2-20 of the little buggers from my waist where my belt was. No problem!

Just get 'em off quick, and make SURE you don't squeeze them (don't remove them with your fingers) because when you squeeze them it pushes the contents of their gut into your blood stream, and that's when pathogens will be transmitted...

She is precious! We saw a huge, I mean huge, male across the street from my front yard.

And there was a female who used to jump across ballantyne commons around noonish every day. I used to see her several times a week but someone crashed into her the other day and she was road kill.

Luckily my girls thought she was taking a nap.

I second that question! Dawn, Are you looking to finish out your educational career out in CA? We can't afford to lose any West Coasters - you're keeping Union County from "tipping over" with all of us East Coasters!

Nothing is definate and see above post.....it wouldn't be for a couple of years IF we were to move....but it has to do with my DH's job.....it is a possibility in the future....but I am not planning until we move....I just think that a picture like this (this one is cropped, the other shows a lot of the backyard with fruit trees) would be good for resale.

We will also see what this market does! We may have to stay a while!

I would like to finish my years in CA, but I have a long time to worry about that....I am most likely looking at only needing about 4-6 more years to get a decent 20 year in retirement, so it can happen later. I know it sounds odd that I am not sure, but I did quite a few "part time years" and put in extra time off track so I need to find out how many years they actually have on file. right now I just have a compilation of days per year.

Days after I moved here from NY, I developed a rash all over & went to the ER twice. At the 2nd hospital, they tested me for Lyme's just to be on the safe side since I had recently moved from a wooded area where deer & other wildlife were daily visitors. The doctor in the ER said that here in NC, they don't get many cases of Lyme Dse from tick bites & it's usually from northern transplants. What they tend to get here in NC from tick bites is Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever.

I thought I was going to see a picture of a snake. A deer is so much better and that one is beautiful.
