Well, yesterday we went out to cut down out Christmas tree. When we got home I set it up in the garage in the stand and crammed under it to get it watered.
Last night I noticed that the side of my head was sore. I thought maybe I had poked it when I was getting the tree put up.
This morning there was an area that was swollen and it was now throbbing. Upon closer inspection it was a deer tick. My mom attempted several times to remove it with a tweezer until I remembered the tick Key I had bought for Guthrie. I had never used it.
Well, it worked like a dream! Pulled the darn thing out perfectly!
Get out and get yourself a tick key! I don't know what I would have done without it this morning.
Oh, ick, a tick on your head!! Thank goodness for that tick key!

Glad you got it!
I have removed a baby tick from hollow of the knee, on myself once. I'm so glad I had Emma's tick tweezers!

Off to google Tick Key. I haven't ever seen a tick on Cinnamon or Cierra. We did have them in our yard in the past but that was probably 20 years ago.

Good use for the tick key. Was it a deer tick or a dog tick? If it was a deer tick, don't forget to go to the doctor.

"Was it a deer tick or a dog tick?"
Deer tick. I can't remember the last time I have seen one of those plain old dog ticks. We used to get them all the time as kids.
