To Do

Oh joy! Top of my "to do" list this lovely am: *Fill in tax return and *Find the hornets' nest.

The hornets demonstrate qualities of intelligence and evil in equal measure, pursuing the children out of the garden and into house with an appearance of such malign intent that it is truly chilling. They terrify the horses in similar fashion. A normally sanguine friend, recently stung, reports that it felt as if someone were pressing a cigar to his forehead for a whole week. There is good reason to believe that I am allergic to wasp-type stings. Hornets are truly gross, yet somehow I still feel drawn to this issue.

Lol! Tax returns or hornets' nests...

A good replacement for the phrase 'the devil and the deep blue sea'!

Death To Hornets!

Let us have a "Global War On Hornets"

Better still, let us collect (carefully) ALL hornets and post them with our tax returns.
