I'm ready for WINTER!!!!! I was out mowing and trimming our yard on Saturday...when I was very rudely attacked by bees/wasps/hornets...something that stings YIKES!!!! The little critters tattooed my face and I was terrified. Needless to say it ruined my day and my plans to stitch. I am on the mend and may never stick my nose, cheeks or anything else outdoors the rest of the season. lol

You poor thing. I just learned that killer bees killed a 70 year man in Oak Hills, California. Please be careful.

Sorry to hear!!! I'm enjoying mild weather in Ohio. 70's with a breeze. I felt like wearing a jacket today but didn't do so. I hope for more days like this. Not ready for winter just yet.

Ouch!!Good that you aren't allergic to bees, but be careful for the rest of the summer. You seem to be a good sport about it & can see the humorous side.

Thank you, I will. If I can't laugh at myself and give other people a smile in the retelling what good is the event? After all there are people who have much more serious problems than mine. Prayers for all of them, :~)

I totally understand! For us at the moment it is smoke! Just can't breathe outside because of all the fires around. Everything is so dry! I LOVE winter. All the bugs and creepy things have gone, the bears are hibernating, we can get someone to shovel the walks when it snows (hopefully), and I can bake and sew and enjoy the holiday season!
Hugs, Nadyne

Thanks, I'm sure I'll be fine. The worst part was being scared to death; only thing I felt was these suction cup thingies all over my cheeks. :)

I hear you Leah. My Mum was attacked by wasps last year and they made a right mess of her hand. I'm sorry to read your face got stung, that would have been very painful. I hope you heal well and ensure you have lots of STINGOSE if you go outside again. Love Chris

Thanks for the heads up Miss Chris, will have to see if I can locate some of this. The up side to the 'swollen face' was no wrinkles....lol

They are just as much of a pest and hassle, hope you can get some relief.

Yikes! I bet it was yellowjackets. They nest in the ground & when you mow over them them attack! My poor hubby's been stung so many times! We destroy the nest after dark, but they come back every summer! However, if there's a skunk around (we have a lot in E. Tn.) they will dig up the nest, drag it all out & eat every single jacket & larva! They'd gotten 2 this year at our house so far! Hope you are ok!!!

I'm not fond of the smell left by skunks but I sure wish they'd have gotten to the stupid things first! Thanks

Yikes. I am so sorry. Not much fun being the cause of their anger.
