Ken's Naperville Real Estate Blog : STUNG BY A BEE!

STUNG BY A BEE!

Ouch. 

When was the last time you were stung by a bee??

I took one about 45 minutes ago.  On the inside of my right wrist.

I can't really blame the bee.

I am at Bear Lake, Michigan.  Nickie and Erin are taking a nap.

I am having a campfire.  One of my favorite activites.  I like to burn a whole lot of wood.

I was pulling up a rotten log when a shooting pain went through my wrist.

I didn't know what happened, but I stepped back and let out a pretty wimpy sounding cry!

But I pulled through.

Still hurts a bit.

Love campfires.

I need more wood.

Ken- I hope other than the bee sting you are having a great time and enjoying your family. Have a wondeful and restful week!

You post kind of reminds me of the bee skit in the original cast years of Saturday Night Live.  I liked those skits.  And they were less painful than actually getting stung!

Hope you are enjoying your trip.

Buzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!

Ken,  All you need to do to kill the bee sting pain is to apply one little drop of STING BEE GONE.  As soon as applied the sting pain is gone and the venom is neutralized.  This is a product that we market made from all natural Juniper oil. It is a very good item to keep in your first aid box or here in Texas in the glove box.  It comes in a i/2 oz bottle a$ $10.95 postage paid.  It works on all yellow jacket, wasp and bee stings.  I did a blog on Sting Bee Gone, you can read it on my site.

Morning Ken,

I assume you survived the attact of the Bee!! I love campfires, Had one most every night when I had the country summer house up north. Sold it after 20+ years last fall and miss it much. Enjoy the weekend and birthday party.

Hi Ken,

This post flashed through my mind yesterday!  It was a beautiful Southern CA day so I was driving, and eating, with my windows rolled down.  A bee flies in the window and lands on my lap.  I didn't want to smash the bee with a hamburger so I grabbed the In-N-Out paper bag instead.  If you ever come out to CA on vacation, I will take your family to In-N-Out.  You can't get their hamburgers in IL - they only operate on the west coast right now.  http://in-n-out.com/ 

P.S.  They're better than White Castle!  :)

Hi Ken~  Ouch! Sorry you got stung!  It is a good thing you are not allergic...

Hi NYL and Vickie.  Thanks for stopping by.

NYL.  I lived in Southern Cal for about 6 months in 1991.  Perhaps dined on one then.  How was the earthquake.

Posted by Ken Tracy, Helping clients buy and sell since 2005 (Keller Williams Realty Infinity) over 9 years ago

Just a little rock 'n roll - CA style!  I'm a CA native.  This was actually the hardest earthquake jolt I've ever felt.  That's because we live only a few miles from the epicenter.  My cell phone wouldn't work and our landline was also knocked out for a while.  A few pix fell off the piano and the pantry had a minor avalanche.  :)  Thankfully, this one was only a 5.8 which is fun but not extremely destructive.  Unfortunately, the experts say we are overdue for a big one.  Then we will be in trouble.

Hi NYL.  Glad you made it through.  Will Las Vegas be beachfront??
