    Looks like we don't need a border wall after all. Actually, I can't imagine being nearly stung to death. Makes me shudder. I am glad she and her son survived.
    Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.

    The media calls it literary license. I call it piss poor journalism. Gives the public the idea that this woman had 40,000 plus bees on her, all stinging away. No doubt she was getting stung a lot, but the story also said the officer put her in his car. Not likely if she was covered in bees.

    That article is short on details, wasn't it? Nothing is said about the Border Patrol agent getting stung, how he got the bees cleared from his truck or how he managed to get the lady and son into his truck without getting his truck filled with bees again. All without becoming a victim, himself. I can only guess he had a veil and a super soaker full of soapy water with him.

    When I have ten bees buzzing around my head, when I get in my truck it seems as though twenty get in with me.
