    I like that one

    Our Fair ended yesterday but if you had posted that last week I would have been showing it at our "O" hives.

    One little boy ask if I ever got stung and when I said yes he replied then why do you pick them up again

    honeyman-Gotta love that straightforward logic! Take my observation hive with me every Saturday when I go to the farmer's market in Springfield to sell comb honey. Take some of my pics along,too. Have now got some regular kids that plan on the bees being there when they come back with their folks each week. Got a big magnifying glass so the kids could look at the bees through it, but the adults use it just as much. Some days I don't sell as much as others, but it's always a good day. People really enjoy seeing them and are really fascinated by them.

    Thanks for the comment. The judge thought I squeezed the bee to get it to release the venom. Didn't have to, I got a little guard bee close to the top vent. She was more than ready to give me the full dose if she could have reached me.
