You might bee a redneck beek if.....
« on: November 25, 2009, 02:40:04 AM »
-you spend more money on beekeeping supplies than your spouse
-you spell be as "bee"  most of the time, and usually don't even realize it
-you can identify most flying insects within 30 feet
-you add your own honey to cherrios, because you refuse to buy the honey "O"s
-you have ever had sticky door knobs, keys, etc and didn't think anything of it
-you actually look forward to the first beesting of the year
-you lay awake at night hoping that the weather will be good enough for a hive inspection tomorrow & then call in sick from work if it is!
-you have seen the "Bee Movie" and were disgusted by all the incorrect information
-your kids have spent hours in the garage as forced labor turning your old hand extractor
-your kids know how to light a smoker, what to put in it & how to "smoke" and you are proud
-you hear someone say "drag queen" and it makes you remember to check in on that one hive
-your idea of a fun afternoon is a lawn chair parked out by your hives
-you have stayed up until 2am on Beemaster & had to get up for work at 6am!

Definitely describes me.  I even sit by my hives and read.  It's the most relaxing spot I have, and I know that no one will come down to disturb me.

Yep....a couple of direct hits on me! No lawn chair, but I do have a hammock on the garden side of the hives; and I have actually called in sick (only once) this year, so that I could work the hives while the weather was nice!

Thanks, Charlotte, for the laughs!!   :-D

I think the "bee movie" could have been more educational.  But hollywood has to make things as they see them.  lol

You might be a red neck if you show up to a wedding in your only suit, a bee suit.

You might be a redneck beek if you move a hive home on the front seat of your car without covering the entrance, thus leaving the doors open at destination for a few hours until all the bees exit.

Your dreaming of going to church on thanksgiving day,not to pray, but because they found a hive up in the wall and it's yours for the taking...
Relax, step back, take a deep breath, the finger you save just might be your own!

Your wallet is covered in propolis.
You routinely have live bees inside your vehicle while driving that warrant strange looks by passerbys.
In case a fire needs to be made, you are the go to person as you always have a torch, matches or lighter with you.
There are various bee parts on the floor of your laundry room and in your vehicle.
You have more lizards and assassin bugs in your beeyards than anywhere else within a 50 mile radius.
You are known in wide circles as the beeman or beelady.
All "oops" paints are in grave danger of being snatched up immediately  whenever they hit the floor at the local H.D. or Lowes.
You use top covers as the top covers on your chicken coop nesting boxes. http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/q8Aqxc_jnzJuPJKBGvm-HQ?authkey=Gv1sRgCOGHnaGr0oe2Cw&feat=directlink

You are seen riding in your truck with your suit and veil on and zipped up cause you have a lot of angry girls riding with you.
Your spouse is alwast complaining about sticky doorknobs and kitchen floor.
Your patio/garage or other vacant area is always full of "bee stuff".
Bees are always flying around near your garage door or back door and you consider them pets not pests.
Head bumps are love taps.
You are always looking at the scenery while driving looking for "bee plants".
You are always looking at the scenery while driving looking for apiaries.
You are always looking at the scenery while driving hoping to spot a swarm on a branch.
You always have a crick in your neck while driving.
Pick up scrap wood beside the road because it is just what you need on your next bee project.
Your wife is jealous of "the girls" and says so!
Your wife sees "the girls" as competiton for your time and affection.
Don't mind a "it was just a little sting".

Your wife hands you the phone and says "It's someone wanting to speak to the beeman."
All scrap wood is available material for woodware.

...........refering to a clump of bees as "the girls".
...........you buy 10 5#bags of sugar instead of 1 50# bag cuz it is cheaper that way.
...........you buy used interior doors paint them with opps paint turn them sideways for wind breaks for "the girls".
