Gum: Did You Know?

Such a sad picture. We have swallows here by the hundred in the summer. I remember the famous face Gum Stops that used to be all over the place so that people could stick their gum on those rather than drop it on the floor. I also ruined a new skirt because someone had left some on a seat.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

    It also most likely contains Xylitol (sugar substitute) of which even small amounts can cause hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), seizures, liver failure or even death in dogs.

  2. I had never heard this. Not that I am one to spit out gum willy-nilly (because that is gross and I have stepped in far too much gum over the years to want to subject anyone else to that), but this is a great reason not to (and to tell other people not to do so).

    • Me neither Sarah. And because we have so many birds around us, I felt it deserved a reblog. Colin has said it can also be fatal to dogs, so that’s another reason to pass it on. 🙂
