    ... if you know the price of sugar at every store in town.
    ... if you have hundreds of pound of sugar in your garage.

    Ditto!

    You know you're a beek when you accidentally call your child/pet/spouse by the name of one of your hives.

    You might be a beekeeper if you go to an estate sale to look at some dishes and come home with 500 lb. of sugar and nothing else (there wasn't any more room in the vehicle) because the people were "preppers" and kept sugar just in case!!

    You might love beekeeping if the sight of pollen both makes you stuffy, sneezy, and giddy all at the same time.

    You might love beekeeping if the package delivery person refuses to come near your porch and tosses packages toward the porch because the bees have found that extracted box you left there.

    You might love beekeeping if that same box also corresponds with the disappearance of solicitors knocking on your door.

    You might be a beekeeper if an old hive box works better than a "Beware of Dogs" sign or a "No Trespassing" sign to keep unwanted solicitors away.

    The wife keeps beefing about not being able to open her car door all the way because of some stored boxes. I just tell her, “ they won’t be there for that long”.

    If yer router table is a deep hive box with the router bolted to the telescoping cover, yew jist might be a beekeeper!

    If you have ever welded a flatbed R.E.O. Speedwagon into a stinger rig, yew jist might be a beekeeper!

    If you've ever changed out of a beekeeping suit into a baseball uniform, and back into your bee suit 3 days in a row, you jist might love beekeeping...

    not an anecdote but a friend needed his wife to like beekeeping so he wanted to take her shopping for bee suits and tools just for her. She got a pink hive tool and the best gloves and she was really getting into the shopping spree. She wanted to try on the suit and once she had it on she asked him how she looked? His answer, "I've never wanted you more than I do right now". SOLD!
    I had to leave. It was too much. Still brings a smile when I think of it.

    had two small nucs that managed two requeen themselves no way they could survive the winter here so I put them in my cold closet in the house I manage to take a peek at them once a week just to get a fix.
