    The Guinea is not water proof. If you hit the neck and the tail a couple of times, the frontline will get to the skin.

    Also, do you really care if it gets too much of a dose?

    Catching up...oh my goodness these are beautiful. Nothing like fresh, just like our cherries. I can almost smell them.

    JW, have you tried sitting on the porch cleaning a shotgun when the 'boy' is going to arrive? I was somewhat difficult when the young men would appear at our house. On some level, I think that my daughter enjoyed my behavior??? All of this until she brought 'the one' home. She asked, "Dad don't embarrass this one - he's different." She was right - 20 years of marriage and 3 well adjusted kids/grandkids have verified that fact. Some sort of screening process is a necessity. [​IMG]

    The rougher I am when boys are around the better my girls like it too! They think it's funny. I hate to say it but some of the worse boys have been the ones from the church! I don't understand that at all. I don't clean the guns I just take them on a tour showing off all the deer heads and different things I have had mounted over the years. Then there is a blank bird on the wall the reads " reserved for the boys the mistreat my daughters" I think they get the message lol. My DW just shakes her head and tells me to have fun but not go overboard

    UPDATE -dosed her yesterday with with scrambled egg (could never resist that no matter how bad she felt) in a bit of water loaded with nutridrench and probiotics in the main water supplies for everyone. By mid afternoon she was no longer hiding but still moving a little slow and by evening she was back to her old squawky, energetic self and ravenously hungry. She was totally back to normal this morning. Thinking now she must have been the one that had stopped laying and a combination of our humid heat and her first egg in a while just had her not feeling so well???

    Oh, and favorite berry pickin' patch opens tomorrrow! [​IMG]
