HI all, Gram, Watch out for Paw. Might be wise to have him see a doc about those stings. If he's getting large areas of swelling from those stings, he may be developing an allergy, even if he was never allergic before. The danger will come with future stings, because the reaction gets worse with each episode. My goodness, everyone sounds so busy. Not much action for me, as I've been trapped in my house for days, due to construction work on a new patio in the back yard. We, very specifically told them to either leave me room to get the car out of my drive, or to let me move it to the street before they started work. So woke up the other day to the sound of a several trunks, one in my drive, dropping their loads of gravel and sand, followed by another truck setting two pallets of bricks at the end of the drive. So much for my going anywhere. Thank goodness hubby's truck was already in the street. I probably wouldn't have gone out anyway, as I've been dealing with a nasty cold/cough for days, and just can't shake it.. I would be planning a visit to the doctor by now, except for what I said about the car. Oh well, l'm looking at the good side, it has meant a whole lot of free time to spend here on the board. Gotta like that.
