Oweeee!!!

Susan is out of town this weekend (taking my Grandsons back) so I decided I was going to get some things done

We have a Fenced Dog Kennel Out Back with a Canvas Top but it was covered with Wet Leaves so I was going to clean it off

Three Sides went fine, Then a Damn Wasp Flew out of the Pile and Stung just below my Lower Lip!

Its Swelling up and hurts like Hell!



I thought it was a leaf but I could feel the wings fluttering and that damn Stinger!

I already called her and asked if we have any Benedryl....she gave it to my Son in Law

Its swelling up but I'm not having breathing issues or anything....not a pleasant experience

Luckily I'm not allergic....I kneeled on a Wasp once...I thought THAT hurt...this is worse

17. I know it's a 30's and 40's meme, but a partially frozen steak makes for a great compress.

3. Your story sent a chill down my spine. As a Trump supporter...

...many a Baltimore 'RAT will believe that you are a recipient of karma...which is not to be confused with unscientific belief systems.



God will take care of you. Wasp stings build good character.

Peace Out

4. Ow!

I remember when I went to pick up an old car that had been sitting for years in a barn. ('67 Cougar) The new owner had gotten it very cheap and hadn't made a close inspection. Turned out the trunk had a HUGE wasps nest in the trunk and they got VERY PISSED when I started pulling the car onto the bed of my tow truck. We ended up having to wait for dark before anyone could get close to take care of the problem. I got 3 stings on my back out of that. The barn owner warned us that there was a wasps nest "somewhere in the barn" and was really apologetic when he found out where.

6. lip stings hurt.

Friends call me to get rid of their wasp nests.
I put on my leather bike suit, gloves, boots and my helmet with a scarf to protect my neck and I just smash the nest. They attack so furiously, bouncing off of my face shield and trying to sting me through the jacket..
Once in a while one finds a hole to get me in the neck, but it's not the end of the world.

It's pretty neat feeling having hundreds of wasps trying to kill you and just standing there while they fail.

8. I saw an article a while back about a researcher trying to determine

the WORST place to get stung. He decided to use HIMSELF as a tool, since he couldn't get any volunteers (no shit!). He determined that the worst places were the lip, the Inside of the nostril, and the PENIS!
Now THAT is some dedication to science!

And a damned fool!

15. I once let my cousin talk me into

putting a few beehives into the back field.

Any time it got hot out those bees went out looking for people to sting especially ones mowing the lawn, or it might just have seemed that way!

18. When I was very young, this would have been the early 70's

My grandfather had an old early 50's Willys Jeep pickup converted into a flatbed. I can't remember why but I was in with him when he moved it on the property. It turns out the whole back of the seat was covered with wasp nests. As soon as he started it they all started swarming around the cab. I remember completely freaking out while he was yelling that if I don't bother them, they won't bother me.

I've hated them ever since.
