Things my Wife Makes Fun Of

Things My Wife Makes Fun Of Me For.


Keeping track of the value of my honey in the belief that this is one of the few hobbies that comes out on the plus side of a cost/benefit analysis.


Spending a day at the local Fair saying the same things again and again …  and enjoying doing so. 


My old, wide-brimmed, green netted bee veil. Hey, it keeps the sun off my ears and the bees out of my face. 


Getting packets of pollen for Christmas – and truly appreciating the thoughtfulness.


Looking forward to a morning of surrounding myself with insects who (she thinks) want to sting me. 


My brother-in-law’s fondness of referring to me as a “wacko bee guy.”


Replacing damaged hive bodies every winter while being totally satisfied with the 15-year-old carpet in the living room.


Finding different creative ways to answer the question, “Do you ever get stung? ”eg. “Only once a year, by the IRS” 


Looking like a drowned, filthy, swollen,  red-faced rat after getting caught with a hive open in the rain. 


Being unable to go on a walk without peering at every large tree looking for a feral colony.
