She lost her vision within 20 minutes of being stung and was paralyzed within an hour. It was not fun especially when the antivenom is in another state and they won't let you use it because it's not approved by the gov. Yet she still insists on flip flops daily. Ah women!
    My wife will come limping in from the barn every 6 months or so complaining that one of the horses stepped on her foot. She is always in slippers and flip flops! I don't think the light buld is working yet

    About every 3 months we have the same conversation.

    Me-"honey you may want to put jeans and boots on to ride"(she is in spandex shorts and flip flops)

    Her- "i ride like this all the time"

    Me- yes dear....

    Her- (2 days later) "babe look at these blisters on my ankles they hurt"

    Me- "wow those are big"

    Yet she still does it. Bless her heart.

    packer58- Thanks it was the scariest time of my life watching her lay there and there was nothing anyone could do. Add not knowing the outcome and that made things much worse. She is all good now the venom just had to run its course.

    Just killed a 35" snake here a couple weeks ago. I thought it was big until I went to show the pics to my friend. When I got there he showed me the pick of a 48" snake with 14 rattles he killed the same day. I hate those things! As far as the wife goes, I told her to start looking a little closer when she steps out the back door since our new house backs up to a big field. Her resoponse: Why babe? This was all while we were looking at the snake I had just killed! All I could do was shake my head.

    You guys crack me up. My wife thought it was a good idea to wash the minivan with a scotch-brite pad. She now wants a new car since the van looks like crap.

    Now that's funny! We were walking thru a parking garage a while back and you could see the footprints on the roof from where people take their shoes off and slap the ceiling with them. My wife stops and asks me how do people get their legs that high??
