Pretty much the same here...even have my Mom's immunity to poison ivy, et al. Then almost two years ago I got popped by a brown recluse and a copperhead within 3 days of each other. Since then even a bee sting sends me to bed almost helpless! It's getting better and I try to stay away from bitey and stingy things!

For a history of bee hunting and the general use of honey in early Texas, check out "Honey In The Rock", a chapter in J. Frank Dobie's "Tales of Old Time Texas".

"See yonder!" said Tom Owen, stretching out his long arm, "There's a bee."
We looked in the direction he pointed, but that was the extent of our observation.
"It was a fine bee," continued Tom Owens, "black body, yellow legs, and went into that tree," pointing to a distant oak. "In a clear day I can see a bee over a mile, easy."
