Your husband is a lousy delivery man. :lol: :P

You don't send him to the shops often, do you? :twisted:

Bert, that must've been funny to watch. Afsaal's bees don't take no for an answer. :naughty:

No, no.... he has his moments.... like the time I saved up for months to buy a brand new chest freezer. Got to the shop and proudly paid for it in banknotes just to hear that I had to pay a delivery fee.... which I did not have at the time. He got home only to find me close to tears 'cause my newly acquired, prize possession is standing who knows where till who knows when. He grabbed the mini's keys saying he'll be back soon. A while later, a very depressed me was standing on the balcony staring down the road when I saw something looking like a huge box on roller skates coming along..... yip! Was my brand new chest freezer tied to the mini's roof! :lol:

Yes.... I know, I have to get back to work...... I'm off topic! :lol:

Hahaha WTM :D That cooler box should have stolen All 3 of the mini's horse powers!!!

As for the Bee Stinging Story.........I don't have that many years to try to remeber, so I find it easy :twisted: It was last year, during my Matric Finals.........I was writing my Afrikaans Language paper......Suddenly I felt something hit my head, thinking It was one of my friends behind me pee-shooting pieces of the exam paper he clearly couldn't answer much on, and needed something to do with his spare time.......I swiftly gave the back of my head a good klap to remove what ever moist piece of material I intended on finding.......This swift movement was quickly followed by a loud "OOOOH BLIKSEM" :shock: :lol: Being the Soutie that I am, this was probably the first Afrikaans 'word' I'd ever said out loud :dance:

That Moist piece of paper, had six legs and one hell of a punch :twisted: (No matter how many times I've been stung by scorpions, wasps, bees and nettles, this is the one I remember best)....I turned the whole hall into a mess after adding to my First Afrikaans word, a fair amount of French :redface: I was removed from the hall, to go get checked up on in the sick room....And was offered to return later to finish my exam, I told them It was ok, as going back in, I would not have added to my mark at all :lol:

Bloody Insects!!! :wall:

Nice one - RJ :D

Many years ago - just 18 and driving my dad's truck (got my licence the week before), truck nicely collected under my right elbow - nice summer breeze - bee flies into my short sleeved shirt and hits me under the arm pit - can't stop - truck to control - some choice french was uttered !! :roll:

Image Me**e!!!

Ha ha

Billy...at least it didn't bounce off your arm, like MINE did and land in your lap!!! :shock: Luckily, it was stunned enough that it didn't sting as I scooped it up and out the window it went. 8)

One of the last times I was stung...we were at a bottle exchange and a drunken hornet came out of a bottle....flew over to my arm and stung me for NO reason.
He didn't survive! :evil:

Yikes, ouch, eina! :x
No wait... a bee, you say? In that case the answer is: never.

But wasps? Oh yeah, in all shapes and forms. :x

btw, my son got a nice sting on his nose way back.
On his 4th birthday.
I have many bees in my garden during summer
3 different kinds. Als small ground bees 8)
Very friendly chappies.

But with Jose here. Wasps in August are a menace
Hornets as well. The bigger wasps. Once had me running for cover in a nature reserve. Tried to photograph a nest. But had to get closer and closer with my lens. :whistle:
