I hope you handle the approaching winter better than me.

Seems boredom will be intense this year. Even this forum seems slow at this point.

I'm already wishing for spring.

I'm trying to get my bee barn finished so that I have a place to work on assembling and repairing stuff during the winter months.  Pam doesn't like it when I try to do that in the living room.  She complains about the smell of pine.  I try to call it Redneck Air Freshner, but she isn't buying it....LOL

Thank you GLOCK.  Wink


I am thinking of a winter project. Something like "Hot Babe Beekeepers". Perhaps some posters, maybe calendars.

I figure with all the old guys in beekeeping, maybe I could sell a good number of something like this.

BTW....If...and that is a subjective big "IF", you think you got what it takes, are at least a 9, and are not afraid of the camera, send a few pics my way. I'll start filtering through them when I get some time alone.  rolleyes

And no...I don't consider a topless iddee something I want to see.  tongue  (female beeks only need apply)

I told you this is going to be a long winter.  grin

Bjorn! I cant believe you would type that and hit the 'post' button. Makes me wonder if YOUR even 9. Sick. Got any daughters? Obviously not.

I initially had something else to say but Ill take it to another site.

Deep breath dear. The boys are just feeling a testosterone surge. No need to get offended.

He meant 9 on a scale of 10, not 9 years old.  Please go back and read again.

No, No,.....No!

You see, it's this type of response to some simple humor that will get us through some hard times in winter. A simple jest of a pin-up calendar, and some quick responses from the (what I can only suggest as the) "NOW" crowd....and walla! Instant entertainment.

I'm thinking to keep it fair to all female beekeepers, I should select pictures for the calendar based on real life matching up of the pictures to actual beehive queen bees.

You know...like:

Queen of the Month: Could go either way here. Open this category to both hot mammas, and perhaps the dressed up male. (Don't want to discriminate)  grin

Un-mated queen of the month: Open to all the femi-nazi types who hate men and would never imagine themselves being with a drone.

Drone laying queen of the month: For the older ladies past their good years.

Two queen hives of the month: Hey...nothing wrong with a few pictures of two queens at a  time. Twin sisters, mother-daughter, or just two queens from unknown origins.

Queens who love ink: For the "painted" ladies out there. Show us your colors.

Caged Queens: For the S and M types. Open category only your imagination can decide.

Other categories being considered: 

Balled queens
Queen who can't fly
Virgins queens bees on the prowl
Queens with attitudes
Wanna-bee queens (Laying worker types)

We could include pictures of male beekeepers under the category of "Drones" but I think it would just be a bunch of do-nothing lazy slobs, and drinking beer types. But then I thought...this is why we need the calendar to begin with!  cheer

It was an easy choice. But that wig and tube-top gave iddee some consideration.

Oh wait....did I say that out loud?  grin

The very reason those old guys will want to buy the calendars is why you won't have many models volunteer.    You'd have better luck convincing iddee to pose topless.   shocked
