Even banging the tractor into high gear and screaming across the field in high gear at a stately 18 MPH wasn’t enough to stay ahead of them. I’m not sure what hurt more – getting stung or slapping myself in the head to kill them.

Again, I’m not sure what hurt more – slapping myself in the male anatomy area or getting stung. All I know is that I could have been a member of a freak show at a circus for several days. Alright, I can hear some of you guys laughing now!

Coming up a country road at around 80, I felt a sharp pain in my neck, followed shortly thereafter by an equally sharp pain in my chest. A wasp (or hornet, or whatever) had flown down my open-neck shirt and wasn’t happy. Neither was I !!
