Go fish!!!!!!!!! Rock on, meo!

Note to self; when you see bees going in and out of your little well house, there might be bees in there. When you fire up the lawn mower to mow the back of said well house they promptly sting you on your heel and get wadded up in your sock as you run to the back door and they FOLLOW you.

Seriously, they were menacing me at the back door!

Got rid of the bee and remembered the ammonia/vinegar/baking soda remedies. I haven't been stung in ten years!

First, spray ammonia (in my case Windex) then use a cotton ball (in my case a paper towel) soaked in white vinegar and lay over the stung area. Then put some baking soda on the cotton ball with the vinegar and lay it on the area.

It's been about twenty minutes but the pain and swelling is down.

HOLY SHEET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's five o'clock somewhere..........

I was outside Saturday taking a picture with natural light. I noticed more bee noise than usual and was being warned with a dive bomb ot two. I looked around and found a round nest hanging off the eaves with bees going in and out.

We waited until it was almost dark and they were in the nest to spray the it. We learned the hard way about what time not to do that years ago. I'm not sure if they were wasps or hornets.

I haven't seen a hanging nest in a long time. Maybe it's a bumper year for bees (although not honey bees) this year, CC.

Dunno. They were def not honeybees. Thanksfully, the hornets and wasps have been very few this year. But the darn black flies are stilll here, we've never had them this long!

One of the things I don't miss about my previous domicile are the wasps! How they got into the house, I'll never know, but since it wasn't exactly air tight I guess it was to be expected. I used a LOT of Raid! I haven't seen any here and very few bees. Not enough flowers to attract them I think. I had a brief fly 'problem' but they went away.

That pass isn't just for National Parks either - It allows entrance into Federal Recreation areas which include National Forest, Fish and Wildlife areas , Bureau of Land Managment and Bureau of Reclamation and gives a 50% discount on those amenities such as camping (exluding hookups) and launching a boat in those areas.

Yes -- before you pay a fee be sure to read the sign because the card is valid in all sorts of places. Last time I went through an admission gate they gave me a little plastic display pocket/tag to use on the rear-view mirror whenever I go into forest service or park areas.

A snail was negotiating to buy a new car at a dealership. The snail said he would sign the contract provided that the dealership would be willing to paint a big "S" on each side of the car and also on the trunk and on the hood. The salesman replied that they would be willing to do that, but he wondered why. The snail answered, "When I drive down the street, I want everyone to say, 'Look at that S car go!'"

(Sorry. The devil made me do it.)

I've never seen that movie, CCc girl. Can't remember where I heard that joke, but it was a long, long time ago. It may, or may not be, original to the movie.
