Teddy Bears

Teddy Bears

Teddy Bear Cholla cactus spines fold over after they get under your skin, so pulling them out is like pulling fish hooks out. One day in 1976 I went to the emergency room in Superior, Arizona with hundreds of them in my wrist.  The doctor had just moved out from Pennsylvania the day before, and had never seen a Cholla. He was pretty good with a pair of pliers however.
