I put a little vinegar in my dog's water starting in early spring. I'm not sure why, but it wards off ticks and mosquitos. Something my hubby's grandmother taught me.

I'm looking forward to some real hiking myself. The aspens are already turning thanks to the drought.

It seems every time we make plans, we can't decide where to go and we end up going nowhere. I now have a Georgia magazine next to the business center in the main office.

The possibilities always outnumber the problems.

Yay for fall! Can't wait to get back out on the trail. This summer we've have problems with a few ticks and lots of fleas on my dog (he's 8 years old and never had a problem until this year). We've finally rid him free of the nasty little things, but I'll still be so happy when cooler weather arrives.

Happy hiking!! emoticon emoticon

It has been a long, hot summer. Amazingly even though i was outside with my family nearly all summer, the first tick I found was 2 days ago. Yucky little buggers. My poor ds was beside himself as I pulled it off him. Poor fella.

I am also looking forward to fall hikes. I did have some good hikes this summer though. It will be nice when it's not so muggy outside!

My husband and I use to wait until late fall and winter to go on vacation. I really like summer for the pool and when dear tick season settles down, I like to hike
