I’d Like to Check You for Ticks

We had such a great time in West Tennessee yesterday. After a half day of work, we made our way to Lexington for some of the best barbecue ever and a great lunch with our grandparents.  Thankfully, we successfully avoided all the Labor Day weekend traffic, though at certain times we did go a little...
