It’s on my hand at the moment but seems totally unaffected by my typing. Must be a fan of GN.😃
They are everywhere.

My five year old grandson was at cricket last week when he was stung by a wasp. He is very easily embarrassed and so he quietly told the coach what had happened, but because he wasn't making a fuss the coach didn't believe him and told him to go away. Fortunately my daughter and husband were there and queried what had happened - and sure enough there was a red swelling from the sting, which they then treated.

The kicker to this story is that my grandson has some very severe allergies and carries two Epipens with him at all times. We have always dreaded him being stung because we didn't know what his reaction might be. Fortunately for the cricket coach all was well, but I did feel he'd 'dodged a bullet'.

ga that reminds me of the time that DD went to Brownie camp; I picked her up off the bus and she was gasping and wheezing. I asked her why she hadn't asked Brown Owl for her inhaler - she said, 'I did, but she wouldn't let me have it, she told me I was making a fuss'.
Cue for a few words.

Ooooh no, couldn't put up with that. I have an automatic yell and hands in air reaction, that's probably what will get me stung.

Well Pamela....everyone should have a pet, what’s it called?

Not entirely relevant, but it does involve bees. Did you see the story about the hiker who got lost in some national park in the US in high temperatures and no supplies. He got by by killing and eating bees and berries. My immediate reaction was: 'What a good thing he wasn't a vegan.'
