Bear is watching a YouTube video on how to do first aid on a leech bite.  The man in the video used hydrogen peroxide to clean the wound.  Bear falls apart at antiseptic wipes.  He is not stoic.  I hope he never gets a leech bite.

Fortunately bear may get sidetracked by maps.  School had them do a project where they worked out the miles between various towns on a round trip of England - Manchester, Birmingham, London etc, twelve places in total.  Bear got happily engrossed in that, then last night got caught up in a huge atlas of mine.  It was £10 second hand about twenty years ago and it is a proper OS, very detailed, set of maps of the UK.  Bear loved it.

I would rather deal with a pile of maps than leeches.

  1. I agree with you. I, too, would take maps over leeches!
