Found two more on me today. One was MASSIVE Africa kind of tick... the other was small and unfortunately was a bit harder to remove. I probably have left half of the tick still in when I tried to remove it with the "tick remover pen" that we were given by the WA Doc in Hungary.

I think any ticks that tried to bite Ricky died horrible deaths during their attempts. Something in his blood. He's immune to them or something.

I think everyone else in our house found at least one tick on them except me, which had me thinking that I just wasn’t checking well enough. I prefer the Ricky explanation.

I certainly spent long enough on the ground after tripping over that branch to have a whole horde of them attack me but sadly not.

I didn't get any ticks either. Maybe it's just middle-aged blokes they don't like.

And not-quite-middle-aged lesbians?
