How,

Was there a cocktail umbrella and a wedge of lime on the 'brew'?

Surely the most powerful wasp repellent would be scrapple?

Ah, I see. Can you clarify - were the two fatalities wasps or your drinking buddies?

(Does that cocktail have a name - an El Nino, perhaps?)

Gary:

I wasn't drinking, buddy. Just sitting on the chair and whammo ! The winged linfords got upset because my ass must have pushed down on their Eero Saarinen-ish nest. We've killed 5 or 6 since that Pearl Harbor-ish attack.
The nest is history, too.

Living with How is proof of Nietzsche famous quote.

Happy birthday, Nina! May you have a wonderful year ahead!

~~~~~~~

Considering wasps, I went out to the car while wearing sandals a couple nights ago. A wasp--we call 'em yellow jackets--attacked and dumped his full load of poison right into some nerves in my instep, fairly near the heel where there are LOTS of nerves. Unbelievable pain! Wrapped my foot in a towel full of ice cubes and had shooting pains up my leg for several hours. Fine now.

When the leaves fall off the trees I will probably find a basketball sized paper nest.
