Well Forest, aren't you thoughtful!

But, tell me, since I didn't exactly say this was a gender specific application, I must inquire why you offer this assistance specifically to "any lady" rather than "any Mainer." Does your wife know about this service you are offering so generously?

So very thoughtful, isn't he? I'm beginning to thing that he should change his nick to "Toad", I think in his previous life he may have been Phrynosoma Hernandesi.

That should have come with a put-down-your-drink warning label!

I resemble a:

The mountain short-horned lizard, also called Hernandez's short-horned lizard or the greater short-horned lizard, (Phrynosoma hernandesi) is a diurnal species of phrynosomatid lizard. It is an insectivore, feeding mostly on ants, though will also eat young snakes. The lizards are found throughout the mountain ranges in the western U.S. (as south as Texas) and into Canada. It is found from sea level to over 10,000 feet in elevation. It was formerly classified as Phrynosoma douglassi hernandesi. It was named for Francisco Hernández Médico, a Spanish explorer who in 1651 wrote one of the first accounts of horned lizards

Well thank you, but really I am just a humble man trying to help.

If you really want to be bug free, you must get a good even coating everywhere. No areas left uncovered I assure you.

I do stock a wide assortment of bug repellent oils.

LOL! I'm glad it didn't go over everyone's head. Now, would you like to explain it to Forest or shall I?

Allow me to explain more clearly.

I have my own spray bottle, my own vinegar and my own DEET (see pic). I was actually being polite since this is a forum for all ages. I prefer to not put articles of clothing on after preparing to venture outside. But I have found that once I treat myself, it's not the insects that gather around, but the two-legged mammals with binoculars that I have trouble repelling.

Ahhh, what's a naturist to do?
