Today is an applesauce day.
The clouds of yellowjackets are almost tolerable since I started putting out a couple of quart (.95l) jars with about an inch (2.54e+8 Angstroms) of cider in the bottoms. I also add a drop of dish detergent. Between the YJ's scent markers and the sweet smell of the cider they rush in and drown.
I have not gotten stung in the past three weeks. I am calm and relaxed and take cares to not squish them. If they land in an awkward place like under my arm, I stop moving until they leave. Panic is bad.
I got a late start today. I ran across a guy with a flat tire. Between this-and-that we got him on his way but it did spin some time off the clock.
