I was just looking at a photo of a fellow working bees with his wedding ring on. If you haven't been nailed on your hand and don't yet know how your body reacts, I encourage you to remove the band of gold before you have the unpleasant experience of having it removed by someone else with a set of tin snips. Just a reminder.

About 30 years ago I did that and got stung. Your right about that coyote. Not to have my ring cut off or my finger I soaked it in ice water and took a benadryl. As soon as my hand got real cold and the meds kicked in the swelling went down and I took the ring off. Good advice for every one out there. It took a few days for the swelling to get down enough for me to put the ring back. Now after all these years of being married I don't wear my ring do to my work and yes the bees. :D
