Attack of the "killer needle nose"

Boy howdy it's hard to get a good nights sleep when stuff is bite'n on ya.

As usual, I made my way to the bedroom right at midnight. I weren't really sleepy, but I wanted to get up early this morn'n. I was lay'n there toss'n an' turn'n.... think'n bout stuff....an' something bite me. What the hell? I turns on the light an' there it was, a big ol' needle nose skeeter buzz'n round the room. I ain't talk'n bout no little pigmy skeeter, I'm talk'n a full grown needle nose blood suck'n fly'n machine. He sound like a weed-eater fly'n round the room.

I don't know bout anybody else, but when I get bit on by a skeeter, I hurt. Get a big ol' welt bout the size a quarter.....itch like hell. I been knowed to scratch my skin slap off when one them blood suckers bite on me. Then I got to put a band aid on it so's I don't bleed to death.
Anyhows, I lay there for bout a hour let'n them skeeters bite on me till I couldn't take it no more. I need relief. I looks in the med cabinet.....ain't got a thing but toothpaste an' alcohol. Then I got to think'n.....wonder what Walmart Ultra Strength Pain Relieving Cream will do for a skeeter bite. So's I smears some on. Well I'll be damn....the itch'n stop in less than 10 minutes an' I go right to sleep. Ya gotta love Walmart stuff.

Since I didn't get much sleep last night an' I got up a little late, what am I gonna do bout swak'n golf balls today? My plan was to be at the golf course bright an' early (10am) an' be swak'n balls by 10:30. I'm think'n that ain't gonna happen 'cause it's 10:15 now. Maybe I'll go later if'n the wind don't get no worse.

Oh, before I forget.....I'm a grandpa. 
Anthony Ryan Piepmeier 7lb 15oz 20.5". Borned yesterday afternoon. 

For me, it ain't no big thing when a grandbaby is born. It ain't like it's my first ya know. I'm think'n Anthony is #23 or 24. With that many grandbabies, ain't gonna be long till I got me a whole bunch of great grandbabies. Yeah.....I'm a proud grandpa this morn'n. 

I didn't do nuttin funny yesterday. Bout all I did was lay on the couch hug'n my toe an' massag'n that sore leg muscle. Damn cramps. Made a attempt to walk out to the old VW Vanagon/Westfalia or what ever, but only make it bout half ways. Damn that leg an' toe hurts. Anyhows, I'm on the heal.....slow but steady. Sure do wish I knowed some way of fix'n my messed up back.....short of surgery that is. Surgery skeers hell out me. 

Ok.....that's it.....ain't got nuttin to talk bout. Laters.

  3. Got up a couple of weeks ago with about 5 bites on my stomach, made big huge knots, itched like crazy. J told me I has bed bugs, and I was about ready to believe it, but that was the only ones, no more. Itched for days. Had my ol $Store itch stuff, worked great, used a lot.

    1. Itch'n for days don't sound like "worked great" in my book.

  5. Congratulations on the new grandbaby.

    I pour some meat tenderizer in the palm of one hand, spit on a finger of my other hand and dip it into the tenderizer, then spread it on the mosquito bite. Instant relief.

    1. I knowed somebody was gonna tell a instant relief for skeeter bites. Got Adolphs on my Walmart list. Meat tenderizer is also very good for sting ray bites too.

  8. Congratulations on another descendant of Billy Bob! Gee, I had a bad thing happen to me. I forgot the name of your blog! I did a search for "Billy Bob" and that actor Billy Bob Thornton's mug kept appearing. So glad I found you. Dang memory is not worth much. Hope your aches and pains go away.
