Good morning. Well, the cold isn't too bad, but I'm not winning the battle with the fleas. I use the Frontline Plus on Pogo, a couple of flea baths a week, constant spraying on the carpet and furniture, vacuuming, etc. It has been suggested that I put a flea powder on Pogo before he goes outside, but I'm afraid he might lick some of it off and get sick.
I'm going to have to ask the doctor what I can do next, plus I will go online to see if there are herbs that I can use to keep the fleas out of the house. I also have to call and reschedule my doctor (check up) appointment. Today we have no babysitter, and I don't want to leave Pogo alone that long.
Today I have to share some photos that I took of a strange looking insect that we found in my yard a few days ago. I looked it up on Google, but the closest I could come to was a "Red Wasp". If you know what it is, do let me know.
Joe first noticed this creature in the grass when he almost stepped on it. We thought possibly it might have been laying eggs. After a few minutes, it turned upside down and disappeared underneath the grass. Seeing as how the grass wasn't very tall, I'm thinking that it went underground. We did not see it fly off. Strange!
Now I have to go make a phone call, and then get breakfast for Pogo. He's been lying here next to me waiting patiently. Gosh, he is just the cutest! So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
