    If you just have to go tell the bees that Dad, a former beekeeper, passed (even if they never "knew" him)........you may be a beekeeper.

    Bee Bliss, so sorry for the loss of your Dad. There is something healing about emptying some of the sorrow out by telling the bees. Nice to hear that someone was taught something about the "old ways". Best wishes, Roger

    If you can't carry groceries in the back of the truck because it is sticky, and you can't fit groceries in the trunk of the old Cadillac because it is full of veils, gloves, and sugar, you might be a beekeeper.

    If there's a 5 gallon bucket of honey sitting on your kitchen counter, you're probably a bachelor beekeeper.

    And if your 2 car garage resembles a hive manufacturing facility with barely room to move, you know you are a beekeeper.

    If Dee Lusby officiated your wedding in the desert and you spent 2 weeks on a working wedding/ honeymoon with her bees and got to sleep until 7 am the morning after your wedding you just might be beekeepers...

    Only bachelors keep 5 gallon buckets of honey around the kitchen? hmmmmm.....

    ...if you can remember the day your queen emerged easier than your childrens' birthdays...

    ...if you hide the cans of RAID at Walmart behind other products...

    ...if you see a large swarm crossing your yard, and you get excited, instead of fearing an apocalypse...

    ...if you've spent all winter in your custom woodshop repairing hives/frames, while your wife is complaining about a wobbly dining-room table...

    Just for the record I thought it was good. But then again I find that often I have to explain my "jokes" to others also. What's my excuse?

    - if you have honey bear maple syrup and chocolate sauce containers in your fridge.
    - if you get stung and feel bad for the bee

    If your guest room has become a honey room with a honey warmer, Extractor and dozens of boxes of honey.

    If under your eaves of the house is next years assembled boxes for expansion.

    If you have a stack of sugar piled up on the front steps for winter feed.

    If you scout piles of pallets behind buildings to convert into 4ways.

    If you collect sugar packets from restaurants.

    If you travel with end-bars in your suitcase so you can pound in eyelets in for wired frames in your hotel room.

    If you travel with a case of honey in your checked bag to give or sell to co-workers.

    If you tip people with a bottle of honey instead of cash.

    If you try and pay for things with honey in a barter.

    If a person you are with gets stung and you say "Better you then me."

    If you try and save the bee that flew into your car and feel bad that it may never find its way home.

    My wife has said. . .

    -If you take your family on a "vacation" because you can get free bees doing a cut-out
    -If your wife says "You need to leave the bees alone and work on the house or I'm going to swarm"

    if you find yourself apologizing to a bee, which you just found in the container which you keep your burr comb, after realizing that she had been locked in solitary confinement for more than half her life. if you then state that that you must do inspections more often.
    If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.

    Why do bees have sticky hair?

    Cause they use a honey comb.

    …if your wife tells you the supermarket is having a sale on sugar and you get more excited than she does.
    When the guys at work are giving away a dining room set and you just look at the top to see if is good enough to rip into bee boxes or hive components (got over ruled and made it ended up making it into a coffee table).

    This one made me laugh out loud hard. Brought back a real memory last summer of bolting out of the house after 25 lb bags of sugar. My wife in tow grumbling under her breath. Man it is good when the tables turn

    That is sad. You really need to get help if you start collecting sugar packets to try to keep your bees fed. How many Mc D's packets in a quart of 1:1?

    Each of these Domino packets is 3.5 grams.

    It will take 450 packets to equal one pound of sugar. So it will take about 675 packets to get a quart of 1:1.

    How long will it take to open 675 packages, to get the equivalent of about $0.90 worth of retail bulk sugar?

    Or perhaps ESB does that on the plane while flying home ...

    My daughter likes sugar in her tea. Can't seem to get her onto the honey in her tea unless she is sick. Since all the sugar usually goes into bee candy she has to use the sugar packets for her tea because the sugar jar is always empty.
