Can Fleas Make Dogs Sick?


(A very cute stinky pun!  When I was a teenager, back in the 1970s, I used to hitchhike on a pretty regular basis.  Sometimes with my brother, but more often alone.  There was always the element of risk, but people seemed – generally – to be kinder, and more trusting – and sane – back then.  I also think that more drivers back then were less intimidated by kids, than they are today, so getting rides was pretty easy.  I’ve been kind of forced to hitchhike a few times as an adult, and it was MUCH harder to get a ride!  Fortunately, two of those times a neighbor recognized me and gave me a ride, but I ended up doing a lot more walking than I had counted on.  I live in an area that has a growing number of Orthodox Jews, and a whole lot of the younger men hitchhike on a regular basis.  I’ve picked up my share of hitchhikers over the years, because I can relate.

All of today’s clue words are well-worn Jumble clue words.  But surprisingly, all of the jumbles are coming up as new for me.  None of them tripped me up though.  The answer letter layout was a tepid ten letter jumble.  The first four letters gave me ITCH right away, and the remainder couldn’t disguise HIKING.

Cute doggy cartoon!  Poor Rex is getting eaten alive, but it looks like he’s preparing to scratch.  It looks like his unsuspecting friend is going to be the fleas next meal/ride.  Way off in the distance it looks like someone is walking another dog.  Fun Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    The times sure have changed today as regards flea control. What a PITA it used to be…flea dips, flea baths, flea powders, flea collar —- and none of them too very effective. Much better today.

    For some reason, the last several days, some of the Jumble clue words seem like they have been used recently. I guess I have Jumbles dancing around in my head.

    I’ve never hitch-hiked, BUT, I have picked people up. Fortunately, never had any issues, though I caught grief for it later when someone would tell on me. I’ve also stopped and picked up people with packages walking in the rain, or just trying to manage several grocery bags. They were probably wary of me, but got in the car. Have met some very interesting people that way.

    One time a guy was going through our neighborhood looking for a friend of mine. It was easier to just get in the car and show him where the house was. YEARS later I found out that he had gone to the same school as me — two years behind me, and had dated a friend of mine. I told him that I’d gotten in the car with a guy looking for that same friend. He said that was him. He said he could not believe that I’d gotten into the car with a stranger. Of course, by that time, neither one of us looked. remotely like we did …. well, at least he didnt …LOL!!! OK…the end…LL
