Whew (again)!

My Daddy was stung on his foot by a scorpion that was trying to take a shower with him a few days ago. He is very allergic to bee stings so Mom and I were really concerned for him but he did not have any bad reaction to it except the pain of the sting.

That was the 4th scorpion we have found in our house this summer. Mom stepped on one early in the summer. It did not sting her. Instead she got the fly swatter and smushed it flat and threw it in the trash can.

I spent a lot of time staring at one but it did not want to play with me. And no one grabbed the flashy box to take pictures of any of them.

Mom will be very happy when the weather cools off enough that the scorpions go away again until next summer.

Scorpion stings hurt! One got in the bed with Mom when she was a teenager. It stung her on the foot. She started kicking to get rid of the pain and flipped the Scorpion up on her neck where he stung her two more times before her Mom and Dad could kill it. She says it felt like a burn from a hot coal or a lit cigarette!

We are glad your Did is not allergic! Mom is not either!

Ouch. Your poor dad. And we read Angel & Kirby's story above. We heard those stings are painful.

Your poor dad!!! We're glad he's OK.
I think scorpions would freak our mom out.
Play bows,

Wow! We don't have scorpions around here. We're glad your dad was okay after he got stung.
