Scam Alert

I hate it when people forward bogus warnings, and I have even done it myself a couple times unintentionally... but this one is real, and it's important. So please send this warning to everyone on your e- mail list.

If someone comes to your front door saying they are checking for ticks due to the warm weather and asks you to take your clothes off and dance around with your arms up

DO NOT DO IT!! THIS IS A SCAM!!

They only want to see you in your birthday suit.

I wish I'd gotten this yesterday. I feel so stupid.

  5. The lesson here is to keep one's clothes on for sure. Too funny. Sandee, you and Zane and Little Bit have a good day and Sandee, do keep your clothes on.

  25. Sadly, checking for ticks a big reality for us. Megan had Lyme Disease, so you might actually catch her doing this after playing outside near high grass. Though I would NOT do it for ANYONE! Lol.
