Baby Pea, aka Chicken Mama, here . . . pinch hitting for Mama Pea. And, really, it's all Papa Pea's fault. He was out mowing by the beehives yesterday - something that ticks them off but good - and instead of exacting their revenge on him (okay, so he did sustain one fairly benign sting), they went after the very-allergic Mama Pea.
At precisely 4:03 yesterday afternoon (Mom seems to recall the exact moment) while working in the field garden, she got nailed by two honeybees. One on the back of her neck (so she can't comfortably lay) and one just under her left eye. She's starting to look pretty ready for Halloween - no swollen face mask required!
Anyway, she was squawking about needing to get a blog post up, but I assured her I'd take care of it. "Just make it funny!" she warned. "I don't want any sympathy!" So, Dad and I have put her in lock-down until the nasty venom leaves her system. I know she'll be eager to be up and at her computer just as soon as possible, but, remember: NO SYMPATHY if you comment! ;)
