Finally a beautiful morning her in SoCal. Made breakfast and then took Hiker out for a 1.5 mile walk. Found another tick under her chin in the thick hair on her chest. I carry my tweezers with me now so I was able to pull it out as soon as I found it. I used to have to stop and go get my tweezers and then I'd have trouble finding the tick again, so now I carry them with me. I went over to my neighbor who does dog grooming at her home and made an appointment to have her bathe and groom Hiker next Friday afternoon. I told her about the tick problem and she said she'd use a special shampoo on her. I woke up this morning around 2:45 am and could not get back to sleep. I don't know what woke me up, but Hiker was up roaming around the house, so maybe she heard something and that's what woke me up too. It was so nice outside that I took Hiker down to the park after lunch. I wish they had more grass down there and more trees for shade. Took some photos of some of the wildflowers. When I got home, found a package on my porch which contained the cheeses I ordered last Tuesday from the Loleta Cheese Factory. That's the fasted they have ever shipped to me. Usually takes a little over a week. This time it took only 3 days. Got up to about 70° which is just about perfect as far as I'm concerned. I don't like it really cold and I really hate the heat, so 70° is just right. I had put a small beef roast in my crock pot this morning and I'm going to make some of my cheesy potato casserole to go along with it.
