Nettles now...an abiding childhood memory is the usual Sunday afternoon walk with my parents and Uncle Don/Auntie Doreen. She got nettled having a wee behind a wall and it must have stung in such a sensitive place. I remember Uncle Don and my Dad chasing her around with Dock leaves offering to 'rub it better '.myoldjalopy wrote: ↑Mon Mar 18, 2019 10:18 amBob - "The petrol explosion happens , in an instant , with no time to react whatsoever...."
Too true.......a mate blew himself up not too long ago with a petrol can near a bonfire and spent two weeks in hospital. To compound his bad luck, once he was on fire, he rolled across the ground to try and extinguish the flames - and rolled into a nettle patch!
Didn't get it at the time... do dock leaves really help with nettle stings anyway?
