Allen I thought you might really appreciate this story.  I am fortunately not
be allergic to poison ivy which means of course that I didn't even bother to
find out what it looks like.  I had to make 60 arrangements for a PTO potluck
dinner in the fall.  I scooped out pumpkins as the base.  I did not have
enough flowers I decided to comb the neighborhood and use foliage leaves.  I
cut and arranged poison ivy in each arrangement.  Thankfully my husband came
home and he knows what it looks like.  Could you imagine all those people that
I might of exposed.  From that much exposure, cutting and arranging it, I did
end up with one small rash that lasted two days.  I, of course, took it out of
the arrangements and put in other foliage.  I was giving all the arrangements
away that night.  It would have been unbelieveable if my husband hadn't known.
