Real shame, I bet they love to go for a ride in the car.

Then I might also have that problem of peeps stopping and wanting to know what their names were. Would it be Ok, if they fed them a bit of ice cream and all the rest of it.

O', I just love the way he looks at me, I'm going to pet him now.

Isn't Ellie driving up North--but no farther than SC?

Ontheroad is now on the Atlantic Ocean and having internet interference! -- so don't expect much from me--not that you get much from me anyway!

Speak of the devil and she shall appear.

I made it all the way to Georgia and will stay here for the time being. A number of fire ants tried to come up here with me but I dumped out the flowerpots and took cuttings of my infested houseplants. I wasn't born yesterday. Just ask Dawglady.

So things are grand. It's nice being back in the "coastal empire" - much greener than north Florida.

I'm considering making a foray into SC tomorrow. Gotta dig out my passport, just in case.

Yes, successfully sold the house in FL. Left those ant-infested acres far behind.

Those ants are nice once you get collars on them. They can even be leash trained. I lived in SC. Not sure some fire ants will go to some parts of that state. Just don't get lost and wind up in Boston, even the ants will not like that experience.

Actually, the Boston air might be good for those ants!
