    My ears are itching...

    I was doing some more rings for my wine stands yesterday... I'm evidently sensitive to one of the woods I was using... I don't know which wood, but for some reason my ear lobs and the tops of my ears and the skin behind them are driving me crazy itching....

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    Take it again, and keep taking it until the itch is gone. It can take a while to get whatever it was out of your system. Took my daughter 3 weeks once after a severe allergic reaction......

    Benadryl would work for me. One shot and I would sleep for three days.

    I guess I would have to saw wood the way they did in the old time comics. The cartoonist would show a log with a hand saw cutting it as a symbol of sleeping.

    Nitey nite and enjoy,

    I was so busy being a smart alec that I didn't mention---are you ready---My ears have been itching also. However, it is inside of the canal. I figured it was too much time with ear plugs.

    Enjoy,

    Sometimes I wish I could wear ear plugs... when I worked for the airlines, that was the "safety" issue to protect the hearing.... I evidently have very small ear canals... the small sized plugs were too big and uncomfortable to wear...I got a set of shooter's muffs to try and protect the hearing some.... I've still had tennitus for the last 30 or so years...
