So I walked down to get the lawn mower and noticed a lot of activity. I tried to count the ‘Yellow Jackets’ flying in and out from under our storage unit.
I looked under and there was a huge nest hanging out of the insulation. So Mark and I went down and shot them with killer stuff. One caught Mark on the chin.
The next day I looked and had about half the activity, but still very active.
On to raking the yard. Having a good time cleaning the yard. I decided to rake some leaves UNDER a big cedar. Soooo I backed into it raking between my legs to throw the leaves 6’ to the trunk.
OUCH! hey, OUCH! then I see them, mad as could be I started running and slapping them. I am sure they were mad ‘cause I killed some of their cousins. I ran around the house back to the motor home called for Sherry to get the broom. Then while trying to help me, she got stung once.
In the end I only got hit by about 6 with two behind my ear UNDER my hearing aid. Which I promptly pulled off put it down and forgot where I laid it. It as a hectic time. I am not liking ‘mad’ Yellow Jackets. Two nests in two days…
I did find the aid, I had thrown it on a chair in my excitement.
The hunt is on to find the nest in the front yard, and plans for the remaining ones under the storage building.
‘Nother subject…I have two girl friends, little ladies both less than 5 ft. They invited Sherry, Mark and I over for dinner. Ann is 86, Daisy(another flower I had forgotten) is 88. they are sisters and widows. I did a little work for them and they insisted on paying, I said NO! so they treated us to a great meal. Country style steak, green beans, corn, carrots, deviled eggs, mashed potatoes, slaw, Strawberry short cake and chocolate pie. (WHAT A DELICIOUS MEAL)
Of course I immediately asked it they had any more work to be done. hahahaha.
L-R….. Me, Daisy, Sherry, Ann and Elmer (BIL). Ann was shoeing us her pineapple with a red bird in it.l
Oh, and they also had gifts for our anniversary. It was all so sweet.
Thanks for stopping by the log.
To repeat last nite’s entry, “It don’t cost nothing to be nice.”
This is here because it is pretty, and I have no idea what it is, but must be the early/mid 30’s.
