A Poem : Please read

jim_6b(TN)July 9, 2009

If your ever outside pulling weeds,

And Nature calls with that certain need,

Before you go in and use the loo,

Wash your hands before you do!

I was telling my DW that I had what I thought were chigger bites the other day. After a closer inspection(but not to close)it appears that I have a mild case of poison ivy on that certain part of the male anatomy that will not be mentioned. I'm not sure where I got into the poison ivy but I can sure tell you where it ended up! Be careful and wash before and after!

nope! i put it on and a "pad" and taped it to my face, its what i got for digging up my much wanted gooseberries!! LOL the poison ivy musta squirted my face, diagonally. so i taped it there and the next day i took it off and it was almost gone, YAY!! it was one of my dorkier moves!! but hey!! i was happy!! LOL its an antibiotic and dissenfectant. so although i hate the smell i use it and spray it all the time, just when i use it on the body, i make sure its apple cider vinegar. we use it for mosquito bites, bee stings, "after the the duct tape is used LOL> and cuts and scratches, ahhhhh that stuff is the bomb!! heals really quick too. sting is gone quicker too. have ya ever seen "101 uses for vinegar" its on the web. **grin** ~Medo
