Good News

I had two spider bites on my eyelid, it was not shingles after all. I was just going off of how I felt the previous time I had shingles (in the exact location the bites are). The bites itched, were painful to touch, I had a low grade headache Sunday and my eyelid was swollen like with the shingles so I just assumed the worst.  Not sure where I got the bites, we have our house sprayed 4 times a year and it is extremely rare to see a spider (or any bug other than a fly) in the house.

I lied on my previous post ... I forgot that I got out early one morning. Two weeks ago I did a short solo ride and wound up riding part of an abandoned highway that has now been bypassed. I was surprised to find all of the road signs still in place despite huge boulders on each end of the road denying access to it. On the south end I just squeezed my bike between the large rocks and as I approached the north end I thought I might have to turn around. The wide part of my bike was just above the top of the boulders but if I did not have folding footpegs, I would not have made it in between them. It was nice seeing nature reclaiming the road and covering the signs up but I figured I had better move on, I met an elderly man walking on the road, and as I approached him running all of 20mph, I waved and said hello. He said nothing and gave me a dirty look so I thought he might be calling the law on me for being on "his" road. lol I was doing nothing wrong, wasn't tearing anything, up just riding slowly and taking some photos but I just don't trust someone who can't smile back after speaking to them ... then again, some people just don't like motorcycles. Can't we just all get along?

Absolutely Phil, rather have a spider bite that shingles any day (well ... most spiders).

Great news about the shingles. Never had them but have heard they are very painful.

Mary, I had shingles a few years ago and from my experience with them they were painful. I'll take a bug bite any day. I still have a hard knot under the skin on my eyelid but thats nothing I can't live with.
