I am a teacher and I enjoy living along Lake Michigan. It is a beautiful place that makes me feel like I am on vacation all year long!

It's June 15th tomorrow and I can barely believe that summer hasn't really even started here, yet. It has been cool for weeks with just a couple of days in the 90's last week. I'm out of school, but still have one more day to work in the library doing some book cataloging for next year.
I bought a tomato plant in a pot with blossoms and a few small, green fruits on it in May. The plant is doing great, but it will thrive more when it gets warmer. Lows at night have been around 50F, so I'm carrying it inside our warm garage before I go to bed each night. Same thing with my petunia hanging basket.
Father's Day this weekend and I just talked to my Dad. He picked up a wood tic working outdoors and it burrowed under his skin and gave him a nasty reaction. He is on heavy doses of antibiotics. The doctors say it isn't the type of tic to cause lyme disease. I certainly hope they are right. Right now I am searching for some tighter fitting UV protective clothing for him to wear outdoors in the sun. He needs the UV protection and also something that fits tight enough to prevent these little bugs from sneaking in.
I see LLBean carries UV shirts, but they are too loose. Anyone have any ideas?? I could shop online and have a shirt mailed to him by the weekend.
