life in my hood with 2 teenagers, a toddler and chronic pain

to bee or not to bee May 4, 2009

I have to post again today.  As I type this, there are about 60 very confused bees swarming outside my bedroom. Bumping grocery shopping and other errands to a lower spot on my to-do list today was staying at home and waiting for the bee wrangler, a nice  gentleman named Anders, from Sweden. He looks exactly like one might imagine a bee wrangler from Sweden would. Yesterday, my daughter noticed a beehive in our backyard which grew in a box that was in a tree and existed as a halfway house to a baby squirrel named “Doggie” that we rescued 2 summers ago.  Don’t ask, I will save that story for a future post. Suffice to say that we are not the bee-killing kind, especially in a world in which the very existence of bees is threatened.  Anders told me the hive was filled with honey.  I only wish I could have tasted some. So, it’s only costing me $150.00 for which, of course, I have no better use, to have this hive relocated out to a field in the country where its members can commune with other wayward bees. Ah, life in the big city…
