TT - This is so funny. I was just thinking of posting this same question.
My better half is not into the bees. :(
She would never say that she doesn't like my hobby, because she knows that would make me unhappy. :(
But just today, I got home and was home for about 3 hours and I noticed that my March 2005 edition of Bee Culture was sitting at the bottom of the pile of mail. So I said to her, "You didn't tell me that my Bee Culture showed up." To which she replied, "Oh I didn't notice." :(
To some that might be grounds for divorce, but apparently she doesn't get as excited about it as I do.
She doesn't help me extract, she will not help me take tons of honey in from the truck to extract it. She doen't like that I may leave a frame of honey in the garage and then there will be about 1000 bees in the garage. :x
And then yesterday, I cleared the dead bees from the observation hive entrance, and there must have been a few live ones that were playing dead, since my daughter reported to me that she found live bees in the house. Mrs. Leominsterbeeman just gave me that look. :evil:
The one thing she does like to do is give my honey away to everyone at church or at the school where she works. then she acts all proud, "Oh, yes, that's my husband - the beekeeper" :D
