NOSEEUMS - neverheardofum, until...

Lily and I had a great time at the Hewson's lake house last week. No phone (cell or land), no TV, no Internet and noseeums. Noseeums, I learned fast, are very tiny bloodsucking flying bugs that attack exposed skin like mosquitoes but you Poor Lily has strips of skin ripped from her shin by her own fingernails trying to end the torment. It's not pretty. But, as you can see from the exuberant smiles, it was well worth every bite. We had 7 days of reading books, knee boarding, water skiing, playing games, watching the girls make chocolate cake, cookies and apple crisp and did I mention no phones, TV or Internet?.......It was REALLY nice.
