Piggies! and Head Lice!

So my parents are totally enjoying their stay on the Cattle station. Apparently my Dad has been hooning around on the quad bike with the young farm hand, feeding cows, fixing fences and fishing in the dam in their spare time. He is loving it. Mum is enjoying her time as well. The other morning she discovered the big sow had delivered 10 piglets during the night. She said there were little pink things running everywhere. Well 10 soon became 15! (all I can say is... OW!)

My son got something else at Karate the other night other than a new belt.... A COLD! Poor little man is not well. Sniffling and coughing :( Don't you hate it when your kids get sick? And of course I have to be extra careful I don't catch it, so I'm not sick while in Melbourne. I am dosing both of us with Olive Leaf Extract. At least he doesn't have head lice. Our Bro-in-Law came over the next night for "Xbox game night" and informed me that his daughter was infested with them! EEP! Instantly my own head started itching. (No I don't have them thank god! My hair is SO SO long, can you image trying to get rid of those evil little suckers from long hair? Believe me, it HURTS like a SoaB!) I went throughout my ENTIRE childhood without once getting Head Lice. When my son was 8 he brought them home from school and BAM! I couldn't believe it. I actually rang my mum in a panic..... "MUUUUM! I've found this thing in ***'s hair!"
"That's Lice dear"
"NOOOOOOOOoooo!!!!!"
Damned feral children....


ah..Memories....

Oh BTW do you like my new look?

    Sounds like your parents are making the best of it.
    Why is someone with insects coming to visit?
    Hope you don't catch either one.
