Potty Mouth

Today was spent back on the tools at the house. Before I started inside, the yard needed a mow. Minding my own business, I was happily mowing around the trees when I was hit in the ear at super sonic speedย by what I thought was a hug flying bug. Standing there slightly stunned I quickly realised this was no bug when the pain hit the brain. The biggest wasp I have ever seen just gave me an ear-piercing. Escaping my lips at full pitch came the words, F..k You, Mother F…ker as I ran away leaving the mower running under the tree.

I guess I have left a lasting “first impression” on the neighbours who have moved in over the past few years since I moved out and haven’t met me yet. I imagine the neighbours who still live in the area and know me were rubbing their foreheads in anticipation of a migraine coming on and muttering “Oh no, that crazy woman is back!”

Now I certainly don’t like to offend people but sometimes you just gotta let it rip.

Risking life and limb (ear) I returned to retrieve the lawn mower and bring you this shot of one of the wasps. This one is a baby compared to the drone that attached me.



I’ve been having a hard time removing the old floor lino. Not one to give up, I also know it’s pointless flogging a dead horse and there is more than one way to skin a cat. I have changed the tool and found this old floor scraper perfect for the job. It has removed as much lino in 2 minutes as the other tool I was using took to remove in 2 hours. I’m feeling pretty good.

Smoko break and time for a quick photo of the sky



I left the house late. Arriving back at Woody Point I had to pull the car over to take a shot of tonight’s Blood Moon. ย I wish I had my tripod with me but managed to get a few nice shots just the same.

  1. That lino is just awful – best of luck with your struggle with it. I am glad you take breaks to take photos!


  2. Hi Kristin,
    love the energy! Sorry about the pain. It must be true then – all the wildlife IS bigger up north! I heard about a fly that couldn’t get through a door.

    Some (+ some more) years back I was tootling along on my Norton Commando wearing only a singlet on top when a wasp (what is it with these wasps?) decided to fly inside my singlet. Potentially a problem, but I immediately gave my chest a couple of left-handed Tarzan pounds hoping that would take it out – luckily, the buzzing stopped… I also let out a loud ‘F…!’

    Great shots of the moon.

    Best wishes , Phil

    Don’t know what it is with wasps attacking innocent bystanders! Must have hurt a lot being stung on your ear!
    Your dog posing on the old lino looks very similar to my Mr Spaghetti Legs ๐Ÿ™‚
    And nice sky shots ๐Ÿ™‚
