Get That Man a Collar, Cruiser Envy, and WTF???

Get Bloggerman a tick collar, stat (what does “stat” stand for btw??)! Get me one now! So after a nice, but hot, run from G-burg to Olney on Sunday morning, I felt something on my leg and looked down to see a nice tick trying to get a free meal. You know how I feel about giving anything away for free…I’m certainly not in the “for it” camp. Strangely though I’m in that camp for the “getting something for free”…..hummm. But I digress. So I scratch that little blood sucker off and continue to wait in line (bagel store). Ten minutes later, we’re in the car headed home (yes it was a run out and drive back kind of day) and I felt the bugger again on my leg and again I knocked it off. Not a minute later I felt him/her/it again and this time took a napkin and pulled it off. I’m not showing any signs of lyme disease yet.

I don’t know if any of you have ever been bitten by a tick or have pets that have had that pleasure but here are some instructions on how NOT to remove them:

Crushing or irritating the tick (by heat or chemicals) should be avoided,
because these methods may cause it to regurgitate its stomach contents into
the skin, increasing the possibility of infection of the host.

A point here to one loyal reader of this space who suggested we BURN them off of our dog when she first got one. Yeah not a good idea to light a match around something with all that hair... forget the regurgitation part! We still love you even though you want us to burn our pup-a-lup to ashes ;-)

On to topic # 2. Do cops get jealous of other cops over the squad cars/police cruisers they are assigned to drive? Mrs. Blogger and I had this debate (of course I started it) in the car the other day and I want to bring it to a larger audience.

Does Cop #1 who gets assigned a crappy beat up old cruiser get jealous when Cop # 2 gets to drive a brand new Charger? I mean if they are both on the force for the same amount of time, I can see one getting really upset! Not sure and wanting answers I took it to the streets and stopped two members of the hard working Montgomery County PD who were “working hard” directing traffic by one of the mega churches in my area. They didn’t seem to think it was a big deal that one of them had a new Charger and the other a Crown Vic. Well I think it is and I want to see them fight it out with Tasers! Just don’t taser me bro!

Lastly today, weird looking dude doing some weird stuff in Cincinnati. The douchewaffle pictured here is Dwight Parnell. He was arrested for spraying water from a syringe onto a woman’s shoe at the University of Cincinnati library. I don’t even know where to begin on this one. On one hand does he get off on this stuff? If so I can’t fault him because we all are freaks in our own right (My dog is looking might good some nights….kidding….or is I??). Is he mentally ill? To do something like this you kind of want to lean that way; in which case you can’t be mad at him. All you can do is shake your head and make sure he gets “help.” But the one thing you CAN say about him is that he should be locked up based solely on this mug shot. If you saw this guy walking down the street, you’d better have the sense to up and run the other way….talk about the bug eyes!

That is all….now go home!
