Oh Yeah, Fun Weekend ...

NOT.

On Thursday, I noticed some familiar spotting on my arm. I knew it was poison ivy and began over the counter treatment. Last night I was wishing I could just fillet my skin, it would feel much better than what I was going through. First thing this morning, I was at the doctors getting a shot, script, and cream. This photo is mild compared to other spots I won't gross you out with.



Wasps are nasty little buggers. I have had them nest under the wood steps off my door wall, between the gas meter and the downspout, and up in the outside lights on either side of the garage door. They must know I am on to them and decided to nest in a bush, right next to my front porch. Not knowing of their new hangout, I decided the bush needed trimming. They decided they were not going to let me remodel their neighborhood. I got stung twice. After dark, I had my Glock in one hand and a can of Raid in the other. One way or the other I was going to unload on them. I took this photo this morning ... it appears they have relocated.

And how was your weekend?

Sure did, when I get home, I am going to take that sucker down. It was still wet with Raid this morning, so any coming back will get the hint to scram.

Ewwww! Poison Ivy!! I had poison oak once. And that was plenty! I was miserable for a couple of weeks before I finally scratched all my skin off to the bone. Then it didn't itch anymore.

And wasps too?!?

No fun!! {{{hugs to you!}}}

Why does the thought of you having a Glock scare me half to death?

Michael: Hey, I have great aim! Don't worry, I took a gun safety class and I don't carry it ... just to be on the safe side though, don't walk into my house a 2AM unannounced, lol
