Cannan, I am both amazed and disturbed by your sbtb knowledge.

what i obviously meant to say was that it couldn't have possibly been a 'tori episode' because jessie and kelly were in it...

that looks a lot like a dog tick to me. What color is it?

That being said, ticks generally don't live in environments like that, so I wouldn't think that's what it was.

If you could, let it bite you and let us know what symptoms you experience.

If he let all 15 bite him, and take a video of it happening, we'd be able to identify it much faster.

Worst pictures ever. Definitely not an assassin bug based on thorax and abdomen size. Tick is good guess but will investigate more whence on lap top

If you need a cave cricket, there are at least 3 of them hanging out in my basement at all times.

Some sort of pied piper arrangement would be most welcome.

Next time you are in So. Jersey/Philly area, I can give you a whole family. No need for a trade.
