I live clear across the country from you but we've been getting beautiful, wet and lovely smelling RAIN since about 2 PM. The Monsoons are officially here and I'm so glad! It's been thundering here too and the cats are under the bed. lol Also somewhat humid but soooo much cooler than it was in the early afternoon. One more thing to love about the Monsoons.

They're cat toys

But I'll take crickets over lizards any day. I like my evening breeze, but if lizard is sunning itself on my porch the wood door gets closed.
We have all those too but they don't get in the house. Well, my cat brings the lizards in. I find mummified lizards all over the place so, yeah, they are her "cat toys". The only thing I don't like finding in my house is spiders. We have Wolf spiders here and those things scare the beejeepers outta me because they jump! And you never know which way they are going. Fortunately I've only ever seen two in the five years I've lived here.

I can't even comprehend how they can do that, it makes no sense.

Our home in FL is insured by itself. DH has a company car with fleet insurance and my car is still licensed and insured in NY. Auto insurance never came up when we were insurance shopping for the house.

Insurance regulations vary state by state. Here in Calif. I have my homeowners' insurance with a different company than my car insurance.

On another subject, Lyme disease is on the rise in some areas of the country, so outdoor-going seniors be aware. Apparently you can get a blood test for it and it can be pretty serious.

I've had two of my dogs come down with it and both made a full recovery but it seems as though dogs have an easier time of it than people. I've also had two friends deal with it. One was not diagnosed for a long time and so was ill for several years before treatment was started and she still has not made a full recovery. The other friend came down with it last summer and was laid low for several months.

Just yesterday I saw that the sign board at my vets office is now recommending vaccinating dogs against lyme and we are seeing more and more cases of it in dogs in this rural area.

Our dog had his booster shot for Lyme about a week ago. It's not 100% guaranteed but it's better than nothing. He still tests positive for Lyme antibodies from when he had it last year but we think he's rid of it. It's just from taking him for walks or from being out in the yard. That's how prevalent it is around here. Last spring, after it had been rainy for a few weeks, he came in from his walk one day, with 25 ticks on him! We took him to the vet right away to be tested. Antibiotics have (hopefully) cured him.

{{{{{{{{{Zugor}}}}}}}}} how are you? On the mend, I hope<3


Lyme is awful, wouldn't wish it on anything. I wonder if there is a vaccination for humans?

Big storm has passed, no injuries reported thankfully. Prayers for the same outcome with Arthur. We're watching him closely, after Irene and Sandy we're pretty nery here in the northeast.

Happy Fourth, y'all.
