A little something for the folks upstairs...

We're on Day 3 of the Second Louse War. So far the lice are fighting a pretty tough delaying action.

We also had to sacrifice the Girl's outlying hair defenses in order to cut off the lice salients.
What remains is a more defensible perimeter. And the thinner foliage - believe me when I tell you that we went after that hair with the Rome Plow and the Agent Orange - provides much less concealment for the enemy infiltrators and the wily Lice Cong sappers who slip through the wire to lay nits and cause havoc.

We're now confident that no further dominoes are in jeopardy; I truly believe that that light is the end of the tunnel and not the headlamp of an oncoming train.

We have been blessed here...when my kids were small, there were several outbreaks at their school, but somehow they never caught them. I used to massage tea tree oil into their scalps when one started....just as a deterent!
