It’s Always Something

(Gilda Radner as Roseanne Roseannadanna)

The Fates decided that a pandemic, riots, Trump DeSantis & Gaetz representing me, and pollen aren’t enough as the Hurricane season begins, I now have honeybees infesting a wall in the cats’ house. In an amazing burst of sanity at some point Florida protects them as an endangered species so you have to get a beekeeper to remove them.

Beekeepers are apparently as secretive as the Knights Templar as they don’t believe in the Internet in Northwest Florida. You have to play telephone tag for a day or so before you find someone who will give you a name, and then you can find them using a name search. Keyword searches don’t work when all of the mentions of bees are in graphics.

If I didn’t have tenants with bee allergies I would ignore the bees. They are between the inner and outer walls, not in cat space and are pollinating whatever the Asian restaurant across the street is growing in their backyard.
