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.

I’m really trying not to laugh m8… 🤭 But that is probably the strangest tale I’ve heard for quite awhile, all things considered. It’s like stepping back into the 70’s… Weird.

I do hope you get it all sorted soon. Have you considered selling the Apartments? Though, I suppose now is not a good time for selling much of anything.🤷‍♂️🙄

I manage the apartments for a friend, I’m not dumb enough to own them. A beekeeper is coming by today to see if he wants the job.

Oh! My mistake. I thought they were an inheritance or something like that.😳 Not sure why now I think about it. 🤔 probably got my wires crossed… Wouldn’t surprise me. A lot did get crossed after the 2008 accident.

I hope the beekeeper took the job. And didn’t charge a fortune. 😀

I inherited the job from my Mother. My family and the owner’s family go back to the 1950s.

The beekeeper did the job for a fair price to remove 20 square feet of honey comb and associated bees. I’ll post a picture later. It has been too damp with all of the rain from Tropical Storm Cristobal, including in my office when the wind is right.

He left me a jar of his honey which I gave to a friend to use on her diabetic cat whose glucose level was crashing. She is going to take the remainder to the veterinary clinic where she works for problems like that. All they had was grape jelly and the cat was not amused.

I’d meant to reply to your comment a couple weeks ago! Time does fly…

I remembered you telling how you took over managing the apartments from your mom.

That was quite good of the Beekeeper and lucky for the cat & clinic. Funny how things work out sometimes. 😀

I’m glad I was able to find a professional beekeeper and not have to deal with a wanton destroyer of the environment whose solution to every problem would be poison.
