Bees and Buffy, the Vampire Slayer
This Bee is CLEARLY in communication with Danguy. I am Very sure of this.
What a fine day. I always love getting to spend an afternoon with The Birdchick, and The Bees. Today there wasn't much to do, but we spent a lot of time with the bees, just watching them. We did add another super to the Bickman Hive, those bees are going to town! As is the Kitty hive, we will get lots of honey. The other hive, not so much.
There was a bit of rouge comb on the top of a Super in the Bickman Hive, which broke open when we broke in, creating a lovely pool of honey, and within minutes, a swarm of workers came and cleaned it right up. Amazing to watch, they got it all.
When Beekeeping, you have to watch each other's back. I looked down at Sharon's glove, and saw the Biggest Spider In The History of the World! (Well, felt like that at the time) We had been lying on the ground near the entrance, watching Bees go in and out, and this guy hitched a ride. I said (calmly, I am sure) DON'T MOVE DON'T MOVE!!!!!!!
When your Beekeeping partner says that (Or anything else, like say RUN!!!!! You do it. ) And I turned her hand over and there it was...
I am very proud of the calm and rational manner in which we handled it.
This picture was taken of the Spider on my glove, after we came back from running and screaming SPIDER SPIDER!!!!!!!!
The rest of the evening was spent making The Rat Dish (Which only Val so far has been brave enough to spell, and watching Buffy. This is my first crack at it, never really saw it, but I am hooked. I saw the first episode, then three from the second season.
Joss Wheaton can tell a story. I am so looking forward to the rest of it. Mim and Venus have decided views on a Mistress who stays out until 11:00pm watching TV with a dog (and we are not talking about the Birdchick here!) tho, and are now Watching every word I type, making certain they get equal time.
(Mim asks that I mention I did in fact shut her in the door coming in tonight, catching her tail in a horrible life threatening manner. For this I most humbly beg her pardon)
Love, Bees, Bengals and Buffy,
