Brick walls are there for a reason. They are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. The brick walls are there to stop people who don't want it badly enough.
I found a tick under my arm, right in the PIT. It wasnt holding on by much so it probably wasnt there very long, plus I always wash my PITS daily so it couldnt have been there long. Must have been from walking my dog, either it jumped onto me from her when we were sleeping or I picked it up myself when we were walking.
Can humans use tick collars, I wonder?
