Ouch.  When was the last time you were stung by a bee?? I took one about 45 minutes ago.  On the inside of my right wrist. I can't really blame the bee. I am at Bear Lake, Michigan.  Nickie and Erin are taking a nap. I am having a campfire.  One of my favorite activites.  I like to burn a whole l...
