Tue April 19 - I'M TOTALLY BUGGED!

It was a great day for an
Administrative Assistant's Luncheon.

We had a number of guests in attendance
and had the distinct opportunity to hear
a presentation on Bed Bugs!

There was a lot of squirming and scratching going on
as we learned the datails of the dreaded bed bug
and how prolific they have become lately.

Our presenter, Kevin Thorne,
brought far more pictures than most wanted to see,
as well as a jar of bed bugs for those who were tough enough
to pass around and look at up close.

Laurie Liddell got real close
and let a couple of them nibble her arm...

Quite an interesting Admin Asst Day!

For those wondering who won the "pop top prize":
Travis Rose guessed the bag of pop tops weighed 5.0 pounds.

Actual weight was 5.1 pounds.
Nice job Travis!
