Can You Hear Me Now...?

I'm sure that from time to time, we have all gotten something in our ear. Maybe a gnat, or 'skeeter, ya know something just very annoying. Imagine then how this woman must have felt!

In 2016, Victoria Price, of Porthcawl, Wales, experienced an earache following her daily swim. She thought water might have been trapped in her ear or that she might have a perforated eardrum.

When her husband examined her ear, he told her that he thought there was something alive inside. At the hospital, using a pair of forceps, triage nurse Sarah Gaze removed a large, “wriggly” spider from Price’s ear. Despite her experience, Price said she is not afraid of spiders.

I got this article from the folks over at Listverse. If you want to see some other things that have been removed from peoples' ears, you can read about it right here!

Coffee out on the patio again today Spring today, but Winter again tomorrow!

THAT had to be unpleasant.

YUCK that would have driven me crazy. Lucky it wasn't one of those piousness one they have so many of.

Wind howling away out there this morning and looks like we had lots of rain during the night. Looks like this is going to go on all day.

Hey Gorges...
I can only imagine!
Thanks for stopping by today!

Hey Jo...
Would have done the same for me, sweetie.
Thanks for dropping by this morning!

Glad it didn't spin a web in there. That just makes me say "YUK".

Hey Dizzy...
Would feel a bit creeped out myself.
Thanks for the visit today!
