It is one of Mom's weird Aussie words - to go 'donga-bashing' means to go
You know why - cause of those darn ticks - they are really starting to 'tick' me off! Dad woke Mom up the other night (1.30 am in the morning actually) and said he felt something crawling on his back. Mom turned on the light and sure enough - there was a tick crawling on Dad. (We had been to the park that day) At least it hadn't bitten him like one did Mom. That meant changing the sheets, checking all over and a very restless sleep because Mom says the mind plays funny tricks and makes you think are are feeling creep crawlies on you even when there isn't anything. Hmmm didn't bother us at all !!!
So now we have to stick to the paved paths - I wonder if the ticks know they are not supposed to be on there???
