I must Bee careful

I felt good to get back full throttle this week and get going for Superior.

I was mowing my "back 40" on Tuesday, and ran over a bumble bee nest. I only got zapped once, but those suckers shoot you up with some serious venom. My ankle still hurts, is swollen, and I had a fever last night.

I will be back at it soon. Maybe hill repeats on Friday night.

I heard drinking some beers helps with bee stings. Give it try.

Hey some folks claim that bee stings have beneficial anti-inflammatory effects... but I prefer runnin-from-the-law's suggestion about beer. Even if it doesn't help, at least with enough beer you won't care...

Lay off the Honey Weiss though.

You have to admit, Cindi has a pretty good suggestion - perhaps even motivation for your next home brew?

Matt:

For what its worth, and probably nt much, you were probably stung by a Hornet (and a hornet's nest) reather than a bumble bee. The other possibility would be a Yellow Jacket's nest.

Keep on truck'n.
