    Default "You just might be a beekeeper."

    If all of your clean bluejeans have propolis stains on them, you just might be a beekeeper.
    If the bottoms of your socks have propolis stains on them, you just might be a beekeeper.
    If it is Sunday morning and rainy and you find yourself on the way to the beeyard and not to Church, you just might be a beekeeper.

    If your wife is in the habit of slapping you the moment you walk in the door and can get away with the excuse. "You had a bee on you".
    Stand for what you believe, even if you stand alone.

    If the pocket knife you carry barely opens because it is sealed shut with wax...
    If you don't go anywhere unless you have a swarm trap and a bee veil in your car, just in case you get a call to remove a swarm...
    If you first try to remedy an ailment with a honey tinxture...
    ---- and finally ----
    If beesource is your homepage you just might be a beekeeper.

    If you talk about your Honey and people know you aren't refering to your spouse, you just might be a beekeeper.

    If you recognize the sound of the hose being blown off of your turbo, you just might be a truckin' beekeeper.

    It's good to have friends. Driving up 81, headed home, I heard a loud bang and lost power. Limped up to the Motel and called a friend for advice. Turns out he had a friend who lives just a few miles away who is a fleet mechanic for a construction company. He came right over and put things back together for me. Mobile again.

    You just might be a beekeeper if you get stung on the end of the tongue while taking a drink from a coke can, while moving bees at night..... not once but twice on different dates.

    .........when you agree to meet someone in a fast food parking lot for the transaction. They have what you want and you pay them. They hand it to you and you watch the worker bees just loving the caged queen in your hand. You are not nervous at all and they are walking all over your hands. You know they will not sting you. None of this would have happened prior to becoming a beekeeper.
