I have been keeping bees for about a year. My daughter came home this weekend and we opened the hives for an inspection. She told me that she thinks beekeeping is my midlife crisis. I was hoping for one that included the Dakar Rally and a couple of 22 year old dancers. Instead, I get big boxes of bugs. Outstanding.

Maybe if so then we have time to figure out these darn insects:scratch:

The reality for most of us mid-lifers is that we'll never have a couple of 22 year old dancers. Our girls are bugs who do the waggle dance.

I had to settle for the black stripes on the yellow girls. Not quite as shapely as 22 year old dancers or as fast as a yellow 'vette or as expensive, but occupies me just the same.

They do let me spend more on the wife, kids and booze.

Been awhile

I know how you guys feel. When I was in my forties my wife stomped her foot
and told me. No More Bees! You have to pick between those "girls" of yours and
me! Oh course I made the only sensible choice, but every now and then I miss her.

Hey Frank that is too funny, lol. I agree with you though. If someone wants to take away the thing or things that make you happy, then it is time for them to go.

I'm 50 years young, what's a Midlife Crisis :scratch:
;)
Yeah, I'm with you. I'm 56 and I just got back from a nice bike ride. What a beautiful day! I feel younger and better every year!
My husband is a gazillion trillion times better than any bunch of clueless and self-absorbed 22 year old male dancers. :D Your mileage may vary. LOL!

Yeah,.I could be A LOT,.."grumpier" :D if not for my bees. It's a beautifull early spring day in Wisconsin, about 65 degrees, maybe even 70 in the sun. The bees are bringing in pollen,....I..saw them,. "bringing it in" by the truck [corbiculae] load yesterday that was pale/lemon yellow; maybe it was skunk cabbage or willow. I don't know,..but who cares. :)

"and a couple of 22 year old dancers."

Well,..you never know. Sometimes at those beekeeping meetin's there are more and more 22 yo. 'dancers',.. [I hope your think'n female?] that are interested in keeping bees also. :D. Ya gotta be gentle with'em though. I've met a few that are soooo into that 'organic' and foundationless and "natural" beekeeping they almost got me believe in it too,..:D
