That's me, I'm him...

DISCLAIMER: Although I am a car guy this is not solely a car blog. I will talk cars, but this is also a blog about how I view the world. Just ask my mom and she will tell you my first word was "car". I do have a slight fascination with them. Luckily I have a supportive family and a very understanding wife...

It was a bee see...

So I know this guy who decided to take up beekeeping this year. He has a couple of "hives" and bought some bees on line. So today I asked him how it was going with the hive and our conversation went a little something like this:

"How's the bee thing going?" I asked

"Not too bad" he replied

"Good" I said

"Yeah, it was kind of crazy the other day. My sister went out to the hive and said there were a couple of bees 'wrestling'..."

"Huh, really?"


"Didn't you say you imported the bees?"

"Yeah, they're Italian bees."

"Oh, you know what it was... We live in Utah. It was probably a couple of Mormon bees."

"Mormon bees?"

"Yeah, they probably showed up on the porch to your hive. Knocked on the door and your Italian bees had them in a head lock sayin 'We don't want your bible!' Tell your sister if she sees them again to check if they have little ties on."

LOL! You don't know for sure they were Mormon bees...they could've been Jehovah's Witness' bees...they sometimes come in male/female pairs. Have your friend "check under the bee's hood" so to speak...
ps--loved the "baby parts" conversation. I can just see that lady re-reading her "what to expect when you're expecting" book for the chapter on "parts"
