Fighting Lyme Disease While Driving

The Tic Mobile fighting Lyme Disease.

I spotted this Tic Mobile on the back of a tractor-trailer car-hauling rig Saturday as Margie and I drove to Lexington. Its stated purpose (on a plate on its back) is to fight Lyme Disease, the favorite cause of my late friend Sarabeth Hammond.

Sarabeth had chronic Lyme Disease for the last few years of her short life and she battled it like a warrior. This has been an unusually friendly year for tics in this end of Virginia, so the little car (covered with faux–I guess–grass and big tics) could have an important impact when it gets to its new owner.
