Honey Buckets


  Honey; Funny

This morning I watched the flurry of birds in the yard, and noticed a particularly heavy population of honey bees flitting about the flowers we planted to attract humming birds.  That reminded my of the scene (maybe the most poignant and heart rendering  scene in movie history (after the Gayle Sayer's eulogy in Brian's Song); the funeral parlor scene where Vada grieves over Thomas J,  who was stung to death by bees.  And that reminded me of a most startling truth.  In my going on 97 years of traipsing about the woods, I have not once seen a beehive in nature.  I mean, it's not that they're tiny little things. WTF?
