Last week after church, Madelyn stepped into a fire ant pile. She started screaming and I threw down all my stuff and started to get them off her. But they got her good. They must attack with a plan -- none of them bite until at least 50 of them are ready and then they all bite at once. She had about 40 bites on one leg and 10 or so on the other. The looked awful. So consider this your warning. . . When in Texas -- don't play with ants!
