beware

Of course I've heard about the problem with ticks in Southern woods.   I thought however that it would be extreme to never take the dog for a walk in the woods.  Dave & Cathy have a great puppy.  His name is CJ and he's lots of fun.   I took him out for a 30 minute walk in the woods yesterday behind Dave's house.

Well, when we returned I started feeling things.  Within 15 minutes I found three ticks on my body.  I shed all my clothes, took a shower, then started the laundry. Then Dave had to get the ticks off the doc.  Geez, I had no idea they were that prevalent.

Picture of the year!!! Go here to have a look, and to read the explanation.

Dave loaned us his car for the week.  We have wheels!!!   On the way back to New Bern today we took advantage of that to do some things that boaters almost never have a chance to do.  First, we visited the Nahunta Pork Center.  Wow.  If you are a pork eater, this is the place to go.  The prices are great as is the quality and the variety is amazing.  Consider every part of the pig's anatomy you can imagine, they have it.  Then, double down on that to include parts and recipes that you never imagined.   We bought several things including some salt pork that we're going to throw into baked beans just like in the old days.


Then, we stopped at a roadside stand to buy some local strawberries.  Our friend Carol from Traumeri said that North Carolina strawberries are the best, so we had to give them a try.
