    Default "You know you are a real beekeeper when..."

    I don't know. Have we done this before?

    Anyhow,

    "You know you are a real beekeeper when..."

    You Google "Swingers" and expect to find forklifts.

    or

    You Google "Black queens" and expect to find bees.

    Wonder why people look at you strange when you start talking about a bunch of virgins running around.

    You suffer from ABD (Attention Bee Disorder). Characterized as a constant summary of any area during a trip of if that would be a good place to put in a bee yard and verbally wondering if every plant or tree is a nectar or pollen source. Tends to drive family members crazy. Usually acceptable behavior round other beekeepers.

    I do not think we are really beekeepers, we are care givers to this amazing insect , oh yes, we "keep" them but even that extracts its price,-blood, sweat and tears for the honey crop.
    Have heard of bees or beekeeping referred to as the backbone of agriculture

    My family didn't believe me when I said there were others like me! Looking for possible bee yards and honey plants when on a trip is a great way to pass the time without getting bored.

    you have left gates open and let cattle and or horses out.

    you have been chased by a mad cow.

    you have dumped everything off your truck at one time or another. hives, honey supers, drums.they always fall off on busy highways occasionally in the rain.

    you have had trailers come unhooked and forklifts cartwheeling.

    you have been stung on every conceivable body part.
