I came to the computer to Googlepoison oak and poison ivy. This is just as painful as being stung by Fire Ants. Yes, I encountered those little pests the other day working in the yard. I want to beautify my yard and porch, and I need the exercise. I don’t need the pain! ~~ If you read the article (red link above), “it” can be on garden tools.

Yard by yard, life is hard.” (ha, ha)
Three-ten and I just placed an order with Walmart. “No, I didn’t order groceries.”Click this link to see my purchase—due to arrive on Tuesday. I don’t even want to talk about it.
