  •  I had a serious encounter with them! (4+ / 0-)

    Was living in California at the time. Went to Oklahoma to lay a headstone at my great-grandfather's grave which was in an old cemetary on someone's farm. Lots of tall grass on the way there.

    Left there with New Orleans as my next stop. Legs were itching. Got to New Orleans and had a rash, horrible itching and thought I was coming down with a horrible disease.

    Got back to California, went straight to the doctor. He wasn't sure. He called in a colleague from Texas. He named it: Chiggers. If forget what they did for me, but I remember them saying the chiggers were long gone, and this was just the after effects.

    I spoke to my cousin in Oklahoma after that and she laughed her ass off that I had actually gone to see a doctor for......chiggers. She still laughs about it. That's okay, I laugh at her about stuff too. : )  Seems to run in the family.

    If you hate government, don't run for office in that government.
