I knew ticks migrated on backs of birds...but this is high class migration! [Big Grin]

If they reported 3 ticks, I wonder how many they really had. [Eek!]

And I was afraid togo to Maine with my Mother and be in the woods.

How ironic!

Makes you think SOMEBODY gets it!!!!!!

Exactly, bug.

If this is such a serious illness, they have to cancel flights because they found the vector that carries it on the plane......

HELLO!!! That says a lot, methinks.

To make matters worse United allows dogs, cats, birds to travel with them as carry on baggage. That means someone else's pet can be sitting in a pet carrier right under your own seat.

And they were wondering where those ticks might have come from. Gee whiz.

From the United Airlines "Traveling With Pets" webpage:,6722,51255,00.html

Traveling with pets
Your dog, cat or household bird (canary, finch or parakeet) may be accepted as carry on or checked baggage. Rabbits, hamsters and guinea pigs may be accepted as checked baggage only. All options require advance reservations and are subject to a charge.
