But it’s not the only evidence.

As a child on this property, I often walked on the lawn barefooted.  Who wore shoes in summer?  And even barefoot through the woods.  Why not?  Summer was a time to avoid the confines of school, and shoes.

And now?  I would no more walk outside barefoot than I would walk barefoot on a bed of coals.

Ticks abound.  And in the tall grass, ticks dominate.  After a morning cutting wood with the chain saw, the first activity on coming in is to shower and check for ticks.

And ticks are nasty nasty creatures - spawned from the recesses of Pandora’s box as a plague on humans.  They carry diseases; we all know about Lyme disease.

I have this sneaking apprehension that Armageddon will not be by violent means, but by the blood born diseases carried by ticks and mosquitoes - insect beasts whose range has increased because of a change in climate.
