Steve, ha!!!! So you really took that bull by the horns, that was excellent that you reported to us before you went to work about your experience, you got guts!!!! Good. 15 stings in a small area, hee haw!!!
You began a great post and you will get more responses I don't doubt one bit. People love to tell of their bee therapy and sting experiences (and let me tell you, there are some funnnneeeeeee ones that I have read in my readings on this forum).
One of the funniest ones (you, my dear old forum friends will remember this one) that happened here was the day my Husband and I were heading off to a funeral. It was actually his Mother's, so it was not a good day. His very swollen and ugly looking face brought that smile and laugh to many a face that day, and I know that she smiled down on him too, her Son, a love of her life that always brought that smile to her face -- and made her laugh too. Miss that old gal.
I was working the bees, he had a beer he had left near the apiary. When he saw what I was doing to the bees, he got the bleep out of there, he didn't want any part of that, he knew there would be some pretty agitated bees. But, first, he needed his beer. Beer. Bees. Hmmm....yep, he wanted to finish his beer. He always watches me work the bees when he is not busy, but this day he had absolutely no quest for that scene.
He walked back to the rock pile where he had set the beer, watching me, watching the bees. Well, if you wouldn't guess it, he saw her comin', flyin' straight at him, bing.....right between the eyes. He went back up to the house (probably going to check his eyes out, imagining what he would look like, hee, hee, ;) ;) :))
Well, when he came back down to see me a few minutes later. Alien city!!!! Eeeks. Yes, and he brought that smile to my face. Have a wonderful and greatest of this day. Cind
I would be curious what part of the body a sting between the eyes would help out. Can't figure that one. You know, every time I look at this picture, I burst into that little hee, heee, heee laugh that is just loud enough for me to hear when I am sitting in my quiet place. I think Burl said that his wife has that squeaky little laugh too.
