I forgot how painful a bee sting can be. Here I was looking up to the sky to check the clouds on my way to the shed trying to decide if I had time to cut half the yard and not watching where I was walking. Into an area of clover, I strolled and one of those buggers got between my flip flop and the bottom of my foot in the arch.

I used to be very allergic to bee stings as a youth. I got allergy shots and carried an emergency kit for them for a number of years. Well, I guess those shots as a youth helped because the older I get the less it affects me. But every step I take the rest of the day is that reminder, don’t ignore mother nature by admiring mother nature.

I’m sitting here listening to the rumble of thunder. Some strong storms rolling through. Maybe I’ll venture out in a while and see if I can find something to charge me up.

If not an early ride will be in order to start my Saturday. I was slack on new images today so I’ll have to double up tomorrow.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • Older people might look confused but they know what is going on.
  • I got to see one of my best friends for the first time in a long time in person.
  • It’s about 7 hours before I start cooking some bacon but I can already smell it.
  • Watching comedy is a great use of time.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
