Ticks on an airplane, ticks on a bus -- they're everywhere

Thursday, July 31, 2008

I loved Erma's section on "Ticks on an airplane." It brought back a wonderful memory of my dad, now deceased.

He and my mom had been here for a visit and left to go visit my sister in Syracuse, N.Y. When I called to see if they had a safe trip, he was all excited to tell me something. He got on the phone and said, "You know, Avis, I found a tick on me when we got here. I had to pay my fare here and I gave that (thing) a free ride all the way to Syracuse."

My dad is French and you would have to hear him to get the full benefit of his story.

Thanks, Erma, that was my chuckle for the day.
