For the most part it was not a good day. I actually lost my glasses three times. It is really tough back behind that lake. Anyway, the final time just before I got stung I came up with a way that I would not have to deal with loosing them again. After straightening them out I did this to them.
That must have been an odd sight for the hikers I ran into ... seeing a man run out of the woods with that tied to his glasses.
Unrelated .... have you noticed they dug rumble strips down the middle of route 70 recently? I was in the woods far from 70 last week and could hear the cars crossing them. I would imagine those who live close by may not be happy with them. Each time a car passes another car they have to cross them and they are loud when it is quiet.
I was out deep in the swamp in the back of the lake at Lebanon Lakes this morning and was attacked by a hornet. It first landed on my ear and I started crashing through the swamp flailing my arms to get it to leave. In the process I knocked off my glasses as I fell to the ground. For some reason it left and after 10 minutes I found my glasses stuck in a tree. I straightened them out and stood up to leave and it returned with a vengeance. A quick sting on my lower back on the left side had me running at top speed, but I was no match for it and got hit again on the right lower back. It followed me out of the swamp and partially across the upland, and as I entered the road it was finally gone. Two hikers coming by looked at them and they were really swollen already The pain was really severe so I went to the ranger station and they gave me something to wipe on it. That actually worked quite well and by the time I got home the one I put it on was much better.
