    Had a interesting day, while mowing the yard, seen a black snake and got stung by 1 yellow jacket right on my lip, Damn it hurts, Then bumped an old piece of wood and a swarm of wasp come at me, got stung on my right arm. Thank goodness I don't seem to be allergic to bee stings..
    Not a good way to start my Vacation. Jump on the big bird in the morning swollen lip and all.. Wahoooo
    Talk to ya'll soon from another country..:72: ooops state..:57:

    I got lit up this morning as well when I went to take down Direct TV Dish 6 wasp fired me up on my left hand. There was a small nest on top edge of dish that popped me on my wrist and another nest inside the pipe that 5 of em fired up on the palm of my hand while pulling on pipe to pull out of the ground. Sitting here with key pad laying on hand twice the size of my other hand LOL. Wasp are history now but still haven't been able to move camper due to flat tires, another hard job to do taking lug nuts off with throbbing hand on 2 flat tires.

    My 2nd best worst stuck story involved getting centered on a bank, bottoming out, ripping open a yellow jacket nest with a front tire, running for my life.... And nearly a 2 hour endeavour trying to get it off the bank... ​

    James I don't know wether to blame you or not for jinxing me!! I've not been stung all year, go weed eat at my church, stir up a nest of yellow jackets, and get stung on the bottom of the nose!! And i wasn't even halfway done weed eating... My whole face hurts now... And, like I always do, as soon as I got popped, I dropped the weed eater and ran! Lol but luckily I didn't drop it right on the nest, I've done that before and it still running... Talk about a fun time retrieving it!
    I'll get my revenge tonight after church services with a little gasoline! Thank the Lord a few minutes later I went over a wasp nest, but saw them in time to run! Wasp ain't as smart as those pesky yellow jackets...

    At 830 they were still abuzz around nest. Dumped the gas down the hole. I know I didn't get them all, but hope I got enough of them killed so the others will move on.
